NNSA’s Online Public Scoping Meetings For LANL Site-Wide Environmental Impact Statement Are Sept. 13 And 14


NNSA will be hosting two internet-based (with telephone access), virtual scoping meetings this week in place of in-person meetings to seek public comments on the scope and alternatives that should be included in the Site-Wide Environmental Impact Statement (SWEIS) for Los Alamos National Laboratory.

The LANL SWEIS will analyze the potential environmental impacts of the reasonable alternatives for continuing LANL operations for approximately the next 15 years.

The public scoping period began in August with the publication a notice in the Federal Register and continues until Oct. 2. NNSA will accept public participation in written and oral form, and comments concerning the scope of the SWEIS will be given equal weight regardless of method of delivery. Written comments will be considered if received or postmarked by the end of the Comment Period.  Comments received or postmarked after the Comment Period will be considered to the extent practicable. 

Written comments on the scope of the SWEIS or requests for information related to the SWEIS should be sent via postal mail to: LANL SWEIS Comments, 3747 W. Jemez Road, Los Alamos, NM 87544 or via email: LANLSWEIS@nnsa.doe.gov
