ANDREWS COUNTY - Another company plans to ship its low-level, radioactive waste to Andrews County.

Waste Control Specialists (WCS) announced on Tuesday that Studsvik, Incorporated, out of Tennessee, will send out the sludge next Monday.

WCS claims Studsvik's process makes the waste safer to store.

This is the first load to hit WCS since they received their new permit from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
