Environmental decision backs science complex

-A A +A
By Roger Snodgrass

A project to construct and operate a new 400,000-square-foot science complex to consolidate offices and laboratories located in outmoded and temporary structures at Los Alamos National Laboratory has been given a preliminary stamp of approval in an environmental decision document.

 

In general, the National Nuclear Security Administration’s environmental description continues to emphasize the “no-action” alternative at Los Alamos National Laboratory, defined as “essentially a continuation of current operations.”

 

The decision is contained in a second Record of Decision (ROD) growing out of a “Final Site-Wide Environmental Impact Statement (SWEIS) for Continued Operation of Los Alamos National Laboratory.”

 

“You can issue one record or separate,” said George Rael, who is the assistant manager environmental operations for NNSA. “When we issued the site-wide, we elected to look at it in parts. The first one came out in September, recognizing that we may issue another one or two.”

 

The second ROD published in the Federal Register Friday has once again selected “no action,” as opposed to reducing or expanding operations, with a few specified exceptions.
