EPA: Uranium from polluted mine in Nevada wells

In this photo taken Oct. 26, 2009,Peggy Pauley who formed Yearington's first citizen advocacy group to address the water contamination from the former Anaconda copper mine site near Yearington, Nev., talks about attempts to make a recreation site out of the mine's pit. After decades of state and mine officials claiming that radiation and arsenic contamination in the local wells occurred naturally, scientists have mapped out a definitive uranium plume drifting from the mine site in the local groundwater.
