DOE needs to clean up its waste

-A A +A
By The Staff

Dear Editor,

DOE needs to remember its requirement to clean up the environment before it creates more waste.

The Rio Grande Chapter of the Sierra Club asks that all work and expenditure toward nuclear pit production at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) be halted until the DOE recommits itself and its funds to the nuclear cleanup of LANL on the schedule to which it had previously agreed.

In 2005, after protracted negotiations, the DOE acknowledged its responsibility in cleaning up and reclaiming the LANL site following decades of contamination of the area around Los Alamos. The New Mexico Environment Department had found an expanding plume of contaminants that was projected to reach the Rio Grande – a lifeline for much of New Mexico. The agreement established a timeline that all agreed upon. Now DOE officials are reneging on those agreements on the basis that funding is not available to maintain the schedule.
