LANL News:

Faint light may be visible in the night sky during the next month as Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Corrective Actions Program drills a well in Mortandad Canyon as part of a groundwater remediation project.

The work began July 4 and will continue 24 hours a day, seven days a week until the work is complete in mid-August.

“Due to its remote location, the nighttime drilling should not have noise or light impacts, but we wanted local residents to be aware of the project in case they notice our light plants,” Project Manager Stephani Swickley said.

Access to Mortandad Canyon is limited to project traffic due to construction activity, Swickley said, and pedestrian and other traffic is restricted.
