As a naturally occurring element, the abundance of uranium in the environment is very low. Anthropogenic activities, including fossil fuel combustion, uranium ores mining and enrichment for nuclear weapon manufacturing, and electricity generation in nuclear fueled power plants, has released significant amount of uranium into the environment. As a result, uranium contamination is a worldwide phenomenon. According to the US Department of Energy (DOE), there are about 2, 000,000 acres in 30 states that are contaminated with uranium.
