Concerned Citizens for Nuclear Safety along with the Multicultural Alliance for a Safe Environment unveiled a map last week that shows historical sources of air and water pollution in New Mexico.
The map includes places where there is oil and gas production, mining, coal-operated power plants, and depleted uranium sites.
The map also shows areas affected by smoke plumes from the Cerro Grande Fire in 2000 and the 2011 Las Conchas Fire. A smaller map details the contaminated sites around the lab.
As far as the Los Alamos National Laboratory is concerned, the map describes LANL as having over 21 million cubic feet of chemical radioactive waste that has been buried in unlined pits, trenches and shafts.
