-A A +A

The National Nuclear Security Administration’s Los Alamos Site Office has extended the public comment period and added a fourth public meeting on the Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) for the Chemistry and Metallurgy Research Replacement Project — Nuclear Facility (CMRR-NF).

The comment period is extended by 15 days, making it a 60-day comment period. The formal comment period recently opened on April 29.

A public meeting in Albuquerque has been added, in addition to those already planned in Los Alamos, Espanola and Santa Fe.

“When coupled with the advance posting of the CMRR Draft SEIS,” said SEIS Document Manager John Tegtmeier, “the additional 15 days and fourth hearing provide the public increased opportunity to participate in the process while minimizing any impact to the program and to the nation.”

The Albuquerque public meeting will take place Monday, May 23, at the Albuquerque Marriott, Salon F, 2101 Louisiana Blvd., from 5-9 p.m.

The public meeting schedule is as follows:
•Monday, May 23, 2011  Albuquerque Marriott, Salon F, 2101 Louisiana Blvd. NE, Albuquerque,
• Tuesday, May 24, 2011 Holiday Inn Express, 60 Entrada Drive, Los Alamos
•Wednesday, May 25, 2011 Santa Claran Hotel, East Event Center 464 N. Riverside Drive, Espanola,
• Thursday, May 26, 2011, Santa Fe Community College, Jemez Rooms, 6401 Richards Avenue, Santa Fe

The public is encouraged to submit comments throughout the comment period.
