Terms and conditions to be contained in license.
Any specific license issued or renewed after July 1, 1981, for any activity which results in the production of by-product material must contain the terms and conditions determined by the State Board of Health to be necessary to assure that before the termination of the activity:
The licensee will comply with the standards for decontamination, decommission and reclamation prescribed by the State Board of Health, which must be as stringent as those standards set by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, or its successor agency, for sites:
At which ores were processed primarily for their content of uranium or thorium; and
At which by-product material is deposited.
Ownership of any disposal site and the by-product material which resulted from the licensed activity will, upon termination of the license and subject to the provisions of NRS 459.340, be transferred to the United States or to the State of Nevada if the State of Nevada exercises the option to acquire them.
If ownership of the disposal site and the by-product material which resulted from the licensed activity is transferred to the United States upon termination of the state license, the money collected by the State from the licensee for long-term surveillance and maintenance of the site must be paid to the United States.
