The Department of Energy’s Office of Environmental Management Los Alamos Field Office (EM-LA) and its legacy waste contractor N3B-Los Alamos are hosting a community meeting from 5:30 p.m. to 7:15 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 19 at Cottonwood on the Greens.

In late 2020 and into 2021, EM-LA will develop recommendations for the New Mexico Environment Department for its review and approval on Material Disposal Area C, the RDX plume, and the Chromium plume. The community discussion/Q&A that will follow a short presentation will provide one of many opportunities for public input into legacy cleanup activities and upcoming decisions.

Community members who are curious about environmental cleanup at Los Alamos National Laboratory and would like a voice in upcoming decisions are invited to attend the meeting.

The meeting will open with a presentation on “Cleanup: Big Picture and Near-Term Decisions” which will be followed by community discussion/questions and answers. There will also be a poster session with subject matter experts who will be available for additional discussions on the legacy cleanup and waste management program
