Center for Land Use Interpretation
Culver City, CA
Center for Land Use Interpretation presents this exhibit which features large glowing black & white LCD images, from the archives of the CLUI, of a selection of uranium disposal cells in the southwest. In addition, interactive touchscreen map displays have more images and information about these unique structures.
More than 30 of these disposal cells have been constructed over the last 25 years, primarily to contain radioactive contamination from decommissioned uranium mills and processing sites. They are time capsules, of sorts, designed to take their toxic contents, undisturbed, as far into the future as possible.
