Financial Assurance for In Situ Uranium Facilities

Financial assurance requirements and contact information pertaining to in situ uranium recovery sites.

Owners or operators of in situ uranium sites are required to provide financial assurance should an owner or operator be unable or unwilling to perform required decommissioning. This money is required for:

  • Decommissioning, decontamination, demolition, and waste disposal for buildings, structures, foundations, equipment, and utilities;
  • Surface reclamation of contaminated areas including operating areas, roads, wellfields, and surface impoundments;
  • Groundwater restoration in mining areas;
  • Radiological surveying and environmental monitoring; and
  • Long-term care and maintenance.

Rules regarding this financial assurance can be found in Title 30, Texas Administrative Code (30 TAC), Subchapter L , “Licensing of Source Material Recovery and By-Product Material Disposal Facilities.”

The Financial Assurance webpage provides information on which TCEQ programs require it, financial mechanism options and requirements. Contact information is provided if you have questions about financial assurance under this program.

Questions about licensing of source material recovery or by-product material disposal facilities should be directed to the Radioactive Materials Division.
