-A A +A

The Los Alamos National Laboratory will hold two public meetings in the next six days.
At 5:30 tonight at Fuller Lodge, LANL will host an informational meeting, regarding the Hazardous Waste Permit Modification Request for the planned Transuranic Waste Facility. This meeting was originally scheduled for June 27 but was postponed because of the Las Conchas Fire.
LANL will submit a request to the New  Mexico Environment Department to operate a transuranic waste container storage facility at Technical Area 63. The facility would replace current storage facilities at TA-54. The meeting will describe the planned facility and the permit modification system.
A second meeting is scheduled for Aug. 16 to discuss Waste Treatment using Open Detonations at 5:30 p.m. at Fuller Lodge.
LANL is holding a public meeting to discuss a Class 3 permit modification submitted to NMED on July 19, 2011. The modification proposes the addition of treatment units to the LANL Hazardous Waste Facility for waste treatment using open detonation at units in Technical Areas 36 and 39.
The meeting will focus on the permit process for these units, the content of the permit modification request, how the waste is generated and the use of open detonation as a waste treatment method.
