LANL shuts down most operations in response to gas emergency

-A A +A

Los Alamos National Laboratory will be closed Friday in response to the disruption of gas service in areas of New Mexico. Operations at the laboratory also will be curtailed over the weekend.

LANL is requesting that employees stay away from the laboratory during the closure, with the exception of mission-essential personnel, who will be contacted by their managers for direction.

LANL made the decision to close after considering a notification sent at 2:09 p.m. today stating that New Mexico Gas Company reports that areas of New Mexico are experiencing service disruption and many homes and businesses are without natural gas service.

Affected areas in Northern New Mexico currently include Española (approximately 2,600 customers), Taos, Questa, and Red River (approximately 10,800 customers), Santa Clara Pueblo, Okway Owingeh Pueblo, and portions of San Ildefonso Pueblo.
