LANL Wants Nuke Dump Ready by Next Fall

Los Alamos National Laboratory is moving forward with plans to expand its nuclear waste dump, a LANL representative told members of a citizens advisory group that recently recommended against the project.

"Designs are done" for a medium-to-large-size pit that would accept low-level radioactive waste, Sean French said Wednesday during a Northern New Mexico Citizens' Advisory Board committee meeting.

The lab plans to begin construction in LANL's Technical Area-54 in mid-2006 and hopes to have the pit operational sometime next fall, according to French, a group leader for operations support at TA-54.
