Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Environmental Programs will close the east side of the parking lot at the “Y” at the interchange of N.M. 4 and N.M. 502 from Monday to Aug. 4.
The closure is part of resumption of work necessary for crews to safely close three formerly used monitoring wells, part of a multi-year program to properly plug and abandon characterization boreholes and wells.
Plugging and abandoning boreholes and wells that are no longer needed keeps the remaining holes from turning into pathways to groundwater.
“We appreciate everyone’s patience as we complete this important work,” said Corrective Actions Program Director Dave McInroy.
“It is as important to close wells safely as it is to construct them in a way that is protective of the environment.”
