In a formal Record of Decision (ROD) authorizing continuing operations at Los Alamos National Laboratory, federal managers have proposed only limited changes in the level of a few activities and a modest handful of new facilities projects.
The ROD, published in Friday’s Federal Register, is based on the Final Site-Wide Environmental Impact Statement that was issued in May, which described a “preferred alternative,” actively supported by the laboratory and the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA).
But the first set of choices includes few of the activities that were proposed under the preferred, or “expanded operations alternative.” Nor does it include any of the options discussed under a third scenario of reduced operations.
“NNSA has decided to continue to implement the No Action Alternative with the addition of some elements of the Expanded Operations Alternative,” the document states. “For the most part, NNSA will continue the missions conducted at LANL at current levels at this time.”
