Los Alamos Site Office Assessment of the Los Alamos National Laboratory TA-55 Fire Suppression System Upgrade to Safety Class

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Independent Oversight, within the Office of Health, Safety and Security, in coordination with the Los Alamos Site Office (LASO), provided technical experts to support the ongoing LASO review of project actions by Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) to upgrade the Technical Area (TA)-55 fire safety system (FSS) from a safety-significant system to a safety-class system. The review is intended to provide DOE line managers with accurate, objective information on the adequacy of actions being taken to support upgrading and future management of the TA-55 wet-pipe sprinkler system as a safety-class system.
