Los Alamos National Laboratory will receive $212 million in recovery act funding and the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant in Carlsbad, $172 million in the national campaign to create jobs quickly while accelerating reduction of contamination left over from the Cold War.
Nationally, the Energy Department will spend $6 billion as part of President Obama’s stimulus package to clean up nuclear weapons sites at Cold War-era facilities, with more than half the money going to sites in Washington and South Carolina, a senior official told a Senate Armed Forces subcommittee Wednesday.
The government will focus on decontaminating and demolishing tainted facilities, removing radioactive waste and trying to restore soil and groundwater, Ines Triay, the department's acting assistant secretary for environmental management, told a Senate Armed Services panel.
New Mexico’s total of $384 million in recovery act funds through the Department of Energy will be used to decontaminate and demolish 35 buildings, reducing the cleanup footprint at LANL by 260,000 square feet, and accelerating preparations and shipments of transuranic waste from a number of sites around the country.
