National Academies Advisory -- June 8 public briefing on LANL groundwater protection

A new National Research Council report reviews the groundwater protection program at Los Alamos National Laboratory and identifies technical issues the laboratory should address to enhance the program's effectiveness. Groundwater contaminants at the 36-square-mile site stem from nuclear-weapons work that was done there during the Cold War. New Mexico state law says LANL must evaluate and, if necessary, remediate the contamination by 2015. The report -- PLANS AND PRACTICES FOR GROUNDWATER PROTECTION AT THE LOS ALAMOS NATIONAL LABORATORY -- will be released at a one-hour public briefing on Friday, June 8.

DETAILS:
10 a.m. MDT at the Fuller Lodge, 2132 Central Ave., Los Alamos, N.M.

PARTICIPATING FROM THE COMMITTEE THAT WROTE THE REPORT:

  • LARRY W. LAKE (committee chair), W.A. Moncrief Centennial Endowed Chair in petroleum and geosystems engineering, University of Texas, Austin
  • RODNEY C. EWING (vice chair), Donald R. Peacor Collegiate Professor of Geological Sciences, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
