FILE - This April 9, 2015, file photo shows the south portal of the proposed Yucca Mountain nuclear waste dump near Mercury, Nev. The Nevada Agency for Nuclear Projects is expected on Tuesday, May 10, 2016, to rip a 301-page environmental study completed last week by U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff members as technically and legally defective. Projections are that contaminated water could migrate beneath the Amargosa Valley farm area 80 miles northwest of Las Vegas toward Death Valley National Park in Calif. (AP Photo/John Locher, File)
