Los Alamos National Laboratory works to address water contamination | Carlsbad Current Argus

A plan to address groundwater pollution took shape at Los Alamos National Laboratory as the facility works to clean up a plume of contaminated water in the area.

Work to extract, treat and reinject the water recently entered full operation, per an announcement from The U.S. Department of Energy Office of Environmental Management’s (EM) Los Alamos Field Office.

Three extraction wells were brought online, along with two for injection of the treated groundwater along the eastern portion of a plume of water contaminated with hexavalent chromium.
