The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and Los Alamos National Security, LLC (LANS), have submitted a Class 3 permit modification request to modify the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) Hazardous Waste Facility Permit. The modification requests an Open Burning Unit at Technical Area 16.
A public meeting on this issue is 5:30-7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 30 at Fuller Lodge, 2132 Central Ave. in Los Alamos.
The public meeting will include a description of the programs that generate explosives waste, how that waste is treated, and various alternative treatments that were tested to come up with a solution that is most protective of human health and the environment. There will also be time for questions.
The proposed permit modification is available for public review 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at NMED – Hazardous Waste Bureau, 2905 Rodeo Park Drive East, Building 1 in Santa Fe.
