Following the lead of the Larimer County Medical Society, more and more companies, professional groups, and professionals in northern Colorado are signing resolutions to express these general concerns to Weld and Larimer County Commissioners and State of Colorado lawmakers:

  • The negative health impacts of exposure to radiation are well- known, and radiation is released into the environment by all forms of uranium mining.
  • According to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s 2007 report, in-situ leach mining has a history of contaminating water.
  • Uranium mining in our area could expose human, horse and livestock populations to health threats from contaminated groundwater, airborne radioactive particles, retention dam breaks, and transportation accidents.

The resolution urges our representatives and public officials to protect Colorado’s citizens, the outdoor sporting industries, and equine, farm and ranch populations by:

  • Avoiding providing any permits that would allow uranium mining until all questions about safety, health, and water quality are answered by those who propose to mine.
  • Developing regulations that protect your constituents from the use of in-situ leach technology to mine uranium in Colorado.
  • Promoting economic development that provides for local people and meets local needs and protects the public’s health and safety as well as our outdoor and agricultural lifestyles.
