While most of the attention fell on the deferment of the Chemistry Metallurgy Research Replacement Facility, President Obama’s FY13 budget called for an increase in appropriation when it comes to cleanup.
The request is up $51 million from $188 million to $239 million, and will allow LANL to pursue cleanup in accordance with the consent order with the state.
The increase includes an extra $36 million to expedite the removal of above ground TRU waste and an extra $13 million to meet milestones on soil and water remediation.
The budget allocation also took two construction projects at LANL.
The TRU waste facility construction was earmarked for $24 million and the Reinvestment Project, which is in Phase II at TA-55, was slated for $8.9 billion.
According to the NNSA, The FY 2013 budget provided $7.58 billion to implement the President’s strategy for the stewardship of the nuclear weapons stockpile in coordination with partners at the Department of Defense.
It included $2.24 billion for facility operation and maintenance, and construction projects, helping NNSA modernize Cold War-era facilities, with increases are requested for the Uranium Processing Facility (UPF) at the Y-12 National Security Complex and the TRU Waste Facility at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL).
