LANL to host permit meeting tonight

-A A +A

Los Alamos National Laboratory will host a public meeting about its application to gain a permit to continue the treatment of hazardous waste by open air burning at Technical Area 16, located in the southwest corner of the laboratory, near the Bandelier National Monument.
According to a press release from Concerned Citizens for Nuclear Safety, LANL is proposing to burn up to 6,000 pounds of hazardous waste per year, which includes high explosives and solvents, with a limit of 200 pounds per individual burn. The meeting will take place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Fuller Lodge.
The meeting will occur before LANL submits its permit application to the New Mexico Environment Department.
According to a lab release, the public meeting will include a description of the programs that generate explosives waste, how that waste is treated, and various alternative treatments that were tested to come up with a solution that is most protective of human health and the environment. There will also be time for questions.
The proposed permit modification is available for public review weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at: NMED - Hazardous Waste Bureau, 2905 Rodeo Park Drive East, Building 1, Santa Fe, N.M. 87505-6313.
