SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — An organization long critical of Los Alamos National Laboratory's plan for a new nuclear facility says the National Environmental Policy Act needs to be followed before the building can move ahead.

The Los Alamos Study Group contends the project is on a larger scale than alternatives analyzed seven years ago and has not been subjected to a NEPA analysis.

The watchdog group is sending a letter to Energy Secretary Steven Chu and National Nuclear Security Administration head Tom D'Agostino about their concerns.

The group says reasonable alternatives to the project were never analyzed.

The NNSA says it has begun preparing a supplemental analysis for the Chemistry and Metallurgy Research Replacement nuclear facility to determine whether a new or supplemental environmental impact statement should be done.
