Cotter gets permit to decommission uranium mill

CANON CITY, Colo. (AP) - Cotter Corp. has finally been given permission to decommission its uranium mill near Canon City.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has issued a radioactive materials license for decommissioning the former plant, allowing regulators to streamline the process.

According to the Pueblo Chieftain (http://tinyurl.com/arxf7tj ), Cotter officials have promised to continue to monitor radon releases and groundwater testing.

The mill and a portion of the neighboring Lincoln Park community have been a Superfund site since 1988.
