This week, the National Nuclear Security Administration Los Alamos Site Office dotted its Is and crossed its Ts as it sent a 386-page Class 2 permit modification request for the addition of a new Transuranic Waste Facility at Technical Area 63 to the New Mexico Environment Department.
In addition, the LASO office sent a 1,074-page document to the NMED, concerning a Class 3 permit modification request for the addition of open detonation units at TA-36 and TA-39.
There were no public comments associated with the open detonation permit modification request.
But that certainly was not the case with the Transuranic Waste Facility, with 30 different emails accompanying the request, all of them against LANL’s plans for the new facility.
Comments in the emails contained:
• “I am opposed to poorly planned and wasteful spending on human activities that are obsolete and harmful to ALL LIFE on this planet. Please see the article below about LANL ‘plans.’ I will state again, it is time that LANL be funded to CLEAN UP the toxic mess that already exists, and give the great scientific minds at LANL NEW jobs of developing affordable clean energy,” wrote April Mondragon.
