Addressing Uranium Contamination
on the Navajo Nation
Beginning in 2008 through 2013, five Multi-Agency Uranium Stakeholder Workshops were held on the Navajo Nation. The intent of the workshops was to bring Navajo residents together to hear about the work going on to address contamination and more importantly to hear from them about their greatest concerns. Each of these workshops were attended by community members and stakeholders and provided valuable opportunities for residents to impact the decisions about how best to address contamination on the Navajo Nation. Stakeholder Workshop presentations are organized, by year, above.
