On the water front

Re: “Contamination shows up in regional aquifer” (Monitor, Sept. 27, 2009). The contrast is striking between Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Danny Katzman, water stewardship program manager, James Bearzi, chief of the Environment Department’s Hazardous Waste Bureau and registered geologist and citizen watchdog Robert Gilkeson.

Katzman says “nothing slips through the cracks.” Bearzi said the contamination is “disturbing.” Mr. Gilkeson points out that the only monitoring well for MDA C is 1000 feet away and calls for installing networks of monitoring wells very close to all LANL waste sites.

Mr. Gilkeson is a staunch advocate for installing a reliable network of monitoring wells that don’t hide knowledge of contamination at both LANL and Sandia National Laboratories.

However, the Environment Department defends the badly flawed monitoring wells at LANL and Sandia with an assessment methodology rejected by both the National Academy of Sciences and the Environmental Protection Agency.
