ANNUAL GROUNDWATER OPEN HOUSE AND DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY (DOE)
ADVISORY BOARD MEETING TO BE HELD IN BEATTY, NV
On Wednesday, February 18, 2015, the DOE National Nuclear Security Administration Nevada Field Office will hold its 6th annual Groundwater Open House at the Community Center in Beatty, NV. This year, the Open House will be held in conjunction with a Nevada Site-Specific Advisory Board (NSSAB) meeting and will begin at 4 p.m.
During the Open House portion (4 p.m. to 6 p.m.), federal, state, and county representatives will join the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS) groundwater experts to share updates on the intensive work being done to understand groundwater affected by historic underground nuclear testing. The public is invited to come and talk one-on-one with these groundwater specialists about topics such as computer modeling, hydrology, and groundwater sampling at dozens of wells across the NNSS, on surrounding federal lands, and in nearby communities.
Beginning at 6 p.m., the NSSAB will host a public meeting during which the public has an opportunity to comment and see first-hand how members of communities near the NNSS are providing DOE feedback on environmental activities at the NNSS. Planned meeting topics include a recommendation relating to the groundwater quality assurance plan assessment process and a briefing on moving to closure at a groundwater corrective action site at the NNSS.
The NSSAB is a federally-chartered board comprised of rural and urban southern Nevada residents who provide recommendations to the DOE Environmental Management Program regarding environmental cleanup activities at the NNSS.
