The Nye County Nuclear Waste Project Office (NWRPO) serves to protect the interests of the citizens of Nye County regarding the federal government's Yucca Mountain Project.

Yucca Mountain, located in Nye County, is the sole candidate site for the nation's first high-level civilian nuclear waste repository. Although Nye County did not request such status, it is federally mandated as the candidate site for the Yucca Mountain repository.
 
Because Nye is the host county for the project, it has legal standing as the unit of local government with limited jurisdiction over the site. Based on this fact, Nye County has certain rights of participation, funding, and on-site representation related to Yucca Mountain policies and activities.
