LANL Cleanup Public Meeting Set for Jan. 16

NMED will host the meeting and the Environmental Management Los Alamos field office will present information concerning cleanup work completed in fiscal year 2017 and the coming year's cleanup milestones and target dates.

New Mexico's Environment Department and the U.S. Department of Energy's Environmental Management Los Alamos field office are hosting a public meeting Jan. 16 beginning at 5 p.m. at the Los Alamos County Council Chambers, located at 1000 Central Avenue, Los Alamos, concerning cleanup priorities for legacy waste at Los Alamos National Laboratory for fiscal year 2018.

A Consent Order is in place, a settlement agreement between the state Environment Department and the U.S. Department of Energy that was issued in 2016. The order provides the process for investigating and remediating contamination from legacy waste management activities at LANL; it both guides and governs the ongoing cleanup of legacy waste at LANL through a campaign‐based approach and the annual planning process.

The annual planning process allows for revisions to cleanup campaigns based on actual work progress, changed conditions, and funding, and this public meeting is scheduled in accordance with the order. NMED will host the meeting and the Environmental Management Los Alamos field office will present information concerning cleanup work completed in fiscal year 2017 and the coming year's cleanup milestones and target dates.
