Prince William Conservancy: Uranium in Virginia

Uranium in Virginia – From a Naturalist’s Point of View

When: Thursday, Feb 2, 7:30‐9:00pm

Where: Bull Run Unitarian Church, 9350 Main Street, Manassas

Speaker: Charlie Grymes, Chair, Prince William Conservation Alliance

Virginia has a uranium deposit worth as much as $10 billion. Other uranium deposits are concentrated east of the Blue Ridge, including in Fauquier County. The General Assembly and local officials are debating right now if mining is appropriate… or not. If we develop the natural resource, what’s the threat to Lake Manassas and the Occoquan Reservoir ‐ and to the water supply of Virginia Beach? Is it better for the environment (and/or the pocketbook) to get electricity in Virginia from coal, natural gas, or nuclear energy? Come learn about uranium in Virginia at our First Thursday Speaker series on February 2.
