A relatively small and sedate crowd attended the final public hearing for 2010 on the Chemistry Metallurgy Research Replacement-Nuclear Facility project at the Hilltop House Hotel Wednesday.
The CMRR project consists of two primary elements: the essentially completed Radiological Laboratory/Utility/Office Building (RLUOB) and the Nuclear Facility (NF), under design.
“The project seeks to relocate and consolidate mission-critical CMR capabilities at Los Alamos National Laboratory to ensure continuous support of NNSA stockpile stewardship and management strategic objectives,” LANL’s Steve Fong said during a PowerPoint presentation. “We have bi-partisan support for this project…we have strong congressional support and we’ve been through not only the Bush administration years but the Obama administration as well.”
Roger Snyder of the Los Alamos Site Office said since the last public meeting they decided to take on a supplemental Environmental Impact Statement(EIS), “which is not a typical for this type of project.”
Interested parties attending the event presented their concerns.
“Only half of the old CMR building is being used now, which is 286,000 square feet – Why is it being replaced with a 600,000 square foot CMRR?” said Scott Kovac of Nuclear Watch New Mexico.
