The National Nuclear Security Administration plans this week to complete a high-fidelity aerial survey of Los Alamos town site, a dual-step project initiated last fall.
The survey began Monday and will run through Wednesday. Residents may notice the silver and blue Bell 412 helicopter flying overhead. The county release indicated that the NNSA is conducting flights to do aerial radiation surveys over LANL property and the townsite.
NNSA arranged for the Remote Sensing Laboratory/National Aerial Measuring System (RSL) of Las Vegas, Nev., to conduct this second flyover following a similar survey of lab property in August 2011, after the Las Conchas fire.
