WIPP Community Forum & Open House (In person & virtual), Thursday, July 7 at 5.30 p.m.

U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Carlsbad Field Office (CBFO) and Nuclear Waste Partnership LLC (NWP) CBFO and NWP will host an in person and virtual meeting to provide an update on the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant.

In the words of our colleague Cindy Wheeler at 285 ALL,

“This is an unprecedented opportunity to find out -from the horse’s mouth- what DOE is planning in regard to WIPP expansion.  We intend to ask questions and will expect answers that tell us how much risk this expansion will expose us to as more of a more dangerous waste is transported past our homes for what will probably be at least the rest of this century.”

Your participation is essential!! It tells DOE how concerned New Mexicans are about the risks it is proposing.  Please plan to attend, in person if at all possible.

Please register if attending virtually, however you do not need to register if attending in person.
