“Critical,” from page 24 low-level nuclear waste dump in Sierra Blanca. “The information we’re receiving is that more than 2,000 will be bused in, mostly from Mexico,” Peace told the San Antonio Express-News. “It could get out of hand in a little county like this. There are only about 3,000 in the county… What is worse, is that they are going to litter our property, damage our property, and create a variety of community expenses that may total as much as $50,000.” The protest Peace referred to was part of a broad-based, bi-national opposition to locating the dump, which will receive nuclear waste from at least three states, in Sierra Blanca. The Texas National Resources Conservation Commission has issued a draft license for the waste site in the desert, ninety miles east of El Paso, and if a final permit is approved a dump could be in operation by 1997.
