The CO is a settlement agreement between the NMED and EM-LA that was issued in 2016. The investigation and remediation of contamination from legacy waste at LANL is conducted under the CO. The CO both guides and governs the ongoing cleanup of legacy waste at LANL through a campaign-based approach and the annual planning process. The annual planning process allows for revisions to cleanup campaigns based on actual work progress, changed conditions and funding.
NMED will host the meeting and EM-LA will present information concerning cleanup work completed in federal fiscal year (FFY) 2022 and the cleanup milestones and target dates for FFY 2023. The Appendix B of the CO, which includes the FFY 2023 milestones and targets, is available on the NMED website under the Compliance Order on Consent at: https://www.env.nm.gov/hazardous-waste/lanl/
