In 2022, the Department of Energy (DOE) Environmental Management Los Alamos (EM-LA) initiated the development of a long-term strategic vision for future LANL Legacy Cleanup Campaigns. The goals of the EM-LA strategic vision are to enhance stakeholder engagement in cleanup decisions, and to align with the objectives of the Los Alamos Legacy Cleanup Contract, regulatory interfaces, anticipated cleanup funding and desired outcomes. The EM-LA strategic vision will be integrated with DOE’s broader goals for the legacy cleanup completion.
“EM-LA will actively engage with stakeholders, pueblos in northern New Mexico, and the public through listening sessions. The feedback, values and opinions we receive from this dialogue will be incorporated into the strategic vision we are developing to prioritize work scope for future legacy cleanup campaigns,” Michael Mikolanis, EM-LA Field Office Manager.
