Los Alamos National Laboratory work crews completed additional flood and erosion-control measures this week to reduce the environmental effects of any flash floods following the Las Conchas Fire.
Crews installed concrete barriers to protect wellheads, utility poles and underground natural gas lines in Los Alamos Canyon. They also installed sampling gauges on the lab’s western boundary to compare run-on water with run-off water and collected samples from fish at Cochiti Reservoir.
Sampling is being coordinated with the New Mexico Environment Department and other agencies, and all results will be made public. Additional fish samples will be collected from the Rio Grande and at Cochiti Reservoir before and after the summer monsoons for comparison.
