Gov. Susana Martinez and New Mexico Environment Department Secretary David Martin met Tuesday with senior U.S. Department of Energy officials to discuss high priority issues for the ongoing environmental clean-up efforts at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
The meeting served as an opportunity for Martinez to meet Don Cook, deputy administrator for the National Nuclear Security Administration’s defense programs, David Huizenga, Acting Assistant Secretary for DOE’s Office of Environmental Management. Los Alamos Site Office Manager Kevin Smith, Deputy Assistant Secretary Frank Marcinowski of the Office of Regulatory Compliance and Assistant Manager for Environment George Rael at LASO also participated in the meeting.
The governor told all parties at the meeting that the acceleration of transuranic (TRU) waste shipments from LANL to the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant near Carlsbad is a top priority of her environmental agenda.
She also reiterated the importance of groundwater protection efforts and ensuring that storm water runoff from LANL and surrounding areas does not adversely affect drinking water systems, including the Buckman Diversion Project in Santa Fe.
