Voices Of Los Alamos To Meet Jan. 28



The next Voices of Los Alamos meeting, scheduled for Monday, Jan. 28 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Unitarian Church, will focus on water and the environment.

Leslie Hansen from Los Alamos National Laboratory Environmental Protection and Compliance will briefly discuss the recent publication of the  LANL Annual Site Environmental Report, a report that includes the results of the Lab’s environmental monitoring programs (air, water, sediments, soils, flora/fauna) and presents a summary of environmental compliance (air, water, waste, etc.). Hansen will be available at the end of the meeting to answer questions.

Danny Katzman, Technical Manager for N3B – Los Alamos, the legacy waste cleanup contractor at LANL, will follow, with updates on the chromium and RDX projects — how both compounds are monitored in our soil and prevented from reaching our water wells. Katzman is a hydrogeologist with 27 years of experience addressing environmental issues at LAN. He has been the technical lead for the chromium project since it began in 2006 and involved with the RDX project for over 10 years.
