NNSA: Water Pipeline To Pajarito Mountain Ski Area Poses No Significant Environmental Impact


Installation of an underground water pipeline, fiber optic conduit and electrical conduit along Camp May Road to Pajarito Mountain Ski Area would have no significant environmental impact, according to an environmental assessment performed by the NNSA Los Alamos Field Office and the Santa Fe National Forest. 

Each agency has independently prepared a decision document of a Finding on No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the Proposed Action.

The project would provide an additional water source for snowmaking at Pajarito, fire suppression, and potable water uses as well as improved electric and fiber optic utilities along Camp May Road and at Pajarito.
