LOS ALAMOS, N.M. (AP) — The U.S. Department of Energy is seeking volunteers to help advise it on radioactive waste cleanup at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

The agency says it needs people to serve on the Northern New Mexico Citizens' Advisory Board, which makes recommendations to the DOE over such things as waste management, stabilizing waste dump sites and future land use.

Its members serve two-year terms.

The board's vice chairman, Robert Gallegos, estimates working on the board takes up 10 to 20 hours a month.

The board is largely made up of people directly affected by lab cleanup activities.
