The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Los Alamos Field Office is proposing upgrades to the Technical Area (TA) 72 Outdoor Live Fire Range at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), which will ensure that the Protective Force has the tactical training functionalities required to maintain proficient security and response capabilities.
This project is at LANL in the bottom of Sandia Canyon in TA-72. The proposed project will result in vegetation removal, added ground disturbance, and soil stabilization within the 100-year floodplain.
In accordance with 10 Code of Federal Regulations 1022 Compliance with Floodplain and Wetland Environmental Review Requirements, NNSA has prepared a floodplain assessment for the proposed action.
The Floodplain Assessment for the TA-72 Outdoor Fire Range Upgrades is available in the LANL Electronic Public Reading Room, on the Los Alamos Field Office NEPA Documents webpage or in hard copy at the LANL Public Reading Room, 94 Cities of Gold Rd, in Pojoaque. The 15-day public comment period for this assessment ends Thursday, May 24, 2018.
