Los Alamos resident Stan Primak addresses lab’s open burn permits

By Carol A. Clark

Stan Primak and his family live in Los Alamos where he operates a small business. He attended Friday’s public hearing regarding the environmental department’s intent to deny open burn permits at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

“I am here today in my capacity as chairman of the Board of Directors of the Los Alamos Commerce and Development Corporation and Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce,” Primak said in a prepared statement.

“Our board represents about 300 member businesses and organizations throughout our community and area that employ thousands of citizens in Northern New Mexico. We support approval of the proposed hazardous waste facility permit for Los Alamos National Laboratory … we find that no reasonable rationale based on health, safety or environmental concern has been presented by the New Mexico Environment Department or any other party for denial of Los Alamos National Laboratory’s permit for the open burn units at TA-16.”

LANL operations and capabilities supported by the LANL open burn capability are important to the security and safety of our armed forces and the nation in general, he said, adding that the LANL operations and capabilities supported by the open burn capability are important to the present and future economy of New Mexico.
