WASHINGTON — Officials from a Pentagon agency toured the Yucca Mountain’s tunnels last month but do not intend to work at the Nevada site, a spokesman said March 2. A small group from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency visited Yucca on Feb. 17, confirmed Daniel Gaffney, the agency’s spokesman. He described it as a one-time deal.
“One of the three letter agencies has been doing a study for potential alternative uses, probably with the encouragement of Harry Reid,” Lacy said during the Pahrump Nuclear Waste and Environmental Advisory Committee meeting on Friday. “There was a Pentagon agency, DTRA – Defense Threat Reduction Agency- and was throwing a lot of stuff out on the test site, and was going to do some testing on train crashes in tunnels, thought that would be a perfect spot to do it.”
