LANL: Steam Might Be Visible From Los Alamos National Laboratory Nov. 14 Through Nov. 17


Starting Monday, Nov. 14 through Thursday, Nov. 17, steam will be released intermittently from a building on Los Alamos National Laboratory property as part of the operational testing of two new steam boilers. The operation is part of an upgrade project to provide more reliable and efficient heating steam to the Laboratory. The steam will likely produce large steam clouds visible to those in and around Los Alamos County, and some might also be able to hear an intermittent loud noise associated with it. Only water vapor is being released and poses no risk to people or the environment.
