The Department of Energy Environmental Management Los Alamos Field Office (EM-LA) has prepared a Draft Environmental Assessment for the Chromium Plume Control Interim Measure and Plume-Center Characterization at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
This document describes the potential environmental impacts associated with the proposed actions in Mortandad Canyon. The objectives of the proposed actions are to control migration of the chromium plume and to further characterize and study the chromium plume in the groundwater beneath Mortandad Canyon.
The public comment period on Laboratory’s proposed actions ends Nov. 13, 2015. To learn more about the Chromium Project and to comment on the Laboratory’s proposed actions, visit http://energy.gov/node/1059401.
The mission of the Office of Environmental Management (EM) is the safe cleanup of the environmental legacy waste brought about from five decades of nuclear weapons development, production, and Government-sponsored nuclear energy research.
