  • Emergency crews respond to pipe leak at LANL's CMR facility


    Emergency crews and the lab security force responded to a call at the Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Chemistry and Metallurgy Research building Wednesday.

    According to a lab spokesman, there was a report of a leaking pipe at the CMR facility.

    The spokesman later said that a fire suppression system leaked, either a faulty sprinkler head or broken pipe.  

    The spokesman said there was no major damage and they were currently in clean-up phase now. He added,” there was no contamination in the water, which is removed by the building's drainage system.”

    According to the lab website, the CMR facility totals 550,000 square feet, including an administrative wing, an office wing, six laboratory wings, and one area that includes hot cells that provide heavy shielding and remote-handling capabilities for work on highly radioactive materials. Three laboratory wings are in various stages of shutdown.
