The Regional Coalition of LANL Communities had a star-studded cast of officials at its meeting last Friday, including Los Alamos National Laboratory Director Charlie McMillan, New Mexico Environmental Department Secretary Ryan Flynn, Department of Energy (DOE) Carlsbad Field Office Manager Joe Franco, Angela Marcucci, director of policy for the office of Gov. Susan Martinez and Pueblo of Jemez Governor Joshua Madalena.
A key topic of conversation was the near completion of the 3706 campaign to clean up transuranic (TRU) waste at Technical Area 63.
McMillan and Flynn were pleased that the DOE is scheduled to meet the goal of completing cleanup by the June 30 deadline, despite two major obstacles: the government shutdown last fall and the radiation leak at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant, where the waste was being shipped.
“When we were first negotiating the framework agreement, I was the lead negotiator for the state in those discussions, and they were some difficult negotiations,” Flynn said.
