DOE/NNSA: Los Alamos Field Office Requests Use Of Building 17 In TA-60 For Treatment And Storage Facility


The Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration’s (DOE/NNSA) Los Alamos Field Office has issued a categorical exclusion for the Hazardous Waste Permit Modification to Create a Treatment and Storage Facility.

DOE/NNSA has approved the use of Los Alamos National Laboratory Technical Area 60 Building 17 as a treatment and storage facility (TSF).

A TSF is required for wastes generated from mission essential operations. Building 17 will not be operated as a TSF until DOE/NNSA’s request to the New Mexico Environment Department Hazardous Waste Bureau for a Class 2 permit modification to the LANL Hazardous Waste Facility Permit is approved.
