Mormon Farms Action Memo (2013) requests approval for a time-critical removal action at the Mormon Farms Site near the Village of Milan, Cibola County, New Mexico. The proposed actions for this Site include the excavation, consolidation, and removal of radiologically contaminated soil/debris from residential properties located in subdivisions adjacent to the former Homestake Mill. Specifically, 19 out of the approximately 92 residences located in the subdivisions show radionuclide contamination in excess of health based levels.
