None of the Moab site is currently open for public use.
Some ofthe dust you see coming from the Moab site contains particles from the uraniummill tailings pile. Radioactive particulate material (radioparticulates) andgamma radiation is measured at monitoring stations located around the Moab siteand at various off-site locations. Although the annual readings at severalon-site locations is greater than the U.S. Department of Energy limit of 100 milliremsper year (mrem/yr) above background, no member of the public occupies anyof these locations for a sufficient amount of time that would cause theindividual to receive a dose in excess of the annual limit. In addition, the totaleffective dose to the maximally exposed individual, or the representative personor group from the public likely to receive the most radiation dose based onexposure pathways and parameters, is well below the 100 mrem/yr abovebackground limit. Dust-generating activities at the Moab site are shut down atsustained wind speeds exceeding 20 miles per hour.
Windblown tailings could create fugitive dust emissions. An effective dust control system is currently in place and will continue to be implemented during remedial activities. Water for dust control is stored in a tank or in a freshwater storage pond and is applied using water trucks or water wagons. Non-hazardous dust suppressants such as calcium chloride solution, stored in tanks, are also used.
Personnel certified in reading opacity measurements monitor visible emissions to determine when active dust control measures (e.g. application of water) should be initiated and when dust-generating activities (e.g. excavating, hauling, grading) should be discontinued to maintain 20 percent or less opacity.

Utah law allows for a 45% reduction in the value of a person’s primary residence. This is called the primary residential exemption and applies to properties that are owner or tenant occupied. If you believe you should be receiving the primary residential exemption you can apply for it through the Assessor’s office.
The Grand County Assessor establishes a value for all property located in the County. The Valuation Notice you received from the Clerk/Auditor reports this value to you. Because this value determines the eventual tax amount that will be due November 30th, it is important that the information on this Notice is accurate. If you disagree with the market value of your real property, you have the opportunity to appear before the Grand County Board of Equalization. You and an appraiser from the Assessor’s Office will be given the opportunity to present evidence to support their opinion of the property value. A second unbiased appraiser, hired by the County Council, will weigh the evidence and make a recommendation to the Council which serves as the County Board of Equalization. The deadline for appealing your property valuation is September 15th each year. More information on this process can be found on the Notice, or by contacting the Assessor’s Office (435) 259-1229.
Right now Grand County is running a pilot program for allowing taxpayers to receive their tax bill via email. We hope to open this program up to the general public sometime in 2018.
