SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A waste business run by the former president of Envirocare has been given preliminary approval for a new radioactive dump in Utah.
The state's Division of Radiation Control gave siting approval to Charles Judd's Cedar Mountain Environmental company for a possible landfill in Tooele County.
Cedar Mountain is plotting its dump adjacent to one run by Judd's former employer.
However, there are still several hurdles the company must cross before it could actually open the facility.
They still need a license from the division and the approval of Tooele County, the Legislature and the governor.
