NNSA News:

The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Los Alamos Field Office is proposing to install storm water controls to improve water quality and allow surface water management in the Mortandad watershed at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

The construction work will involve disturbing a small portion of a wetland. There are no negative, long-term impacts to the wetland expected under the proposed project.

In accordance with 10 Code of Federal Regulations 1022 Compliance with Floodplain and Wetland Environmental Review Requirements, NNSA has prepared a wetland assessment for the proposed action.
