Los Alamos National Laboratory recently began to demolish Dome 281 — a 4,100-square- foot metal and fabric dome at the lab’s Technical Area 54. It’s the next step in LANL’s multi-year closure plan for TA-54, which must be complete by 2015 under the Consent Order cleanup agreement with the state of New Mexico. Removing the domes at TA-54 is also important to the San Ildefonso Pueblo, whose sacred lands are just to the north of TA-54.
After weeks of preparation, demolition should be complete in just a few days. This is the second dome LANL has taken down this year and the third in the last two years. Dome 281 formerly housed a compactor for low-level waste. Funding came from the lab’s general environmental cleanup funds.
