Commissioner Garcia Richard: Holtec International Misrepresentations Raise Serious Safety Concerns For Proposed Nuclear Storage Facility In New Mexico

first_imgHoltec has falsely claimed to have secured agreements from oil and gas operators at or around the site to restrict these activities, specifically assuring the NRC that oil and gas drilling will only occur at depths greater than 5,000 feet. However, there are no such agreements containing these restrictions in place with oil and gas lessees at the site or the State Land Office. One agreement has been made with Intrepid Mining, LLC, a potash mining company, but that agreement has not been approved, as required by lease terms, by the State Land Office. SANTA FE ― Commissioner of Public Lands Stephanie Garcia Richard sent the attached letter Wednesday to Holtec International President and CEO Krishna Singh. STATE News: Commissioner Garcia Richard released the following statement regarding the letter and the Holtec proposal: “This is not the right site for high-level nuclear storage. Holtec has only provided bits and pieces of information, and what they have provided has been incomplete and at times misleading. We are talking about storing over 120,000 metric tons of nuclear waste in an extremely active oil field without a clear picture of the potential hazards of that combination. For example, I’m not aware of any studies demonstrating the safety of fracking beneath a nuclear storage site. There is no guarantee that high-level nuclear waste can be safely transported to and through New Mexico. There is no guarantee that there won’t be a hazardous interaction between the storage site and nearby oil, gas, and mining activities. There is no guarantee that this site will truly be ‘interim’ and won’t become the permanent dumping ground for our nation’s nuclear waste. I understand that we need to find a storage solution, but not in the middle of an active oil field, not from a company that is misrepresenting facts and unwilling to answer questions, not on our state trust lands.”center_img Given the State Land Office’s mineral ownership of the land and the lack of restrictions on mineral development at the site, any claim that activities at the site have been restricted is incorrect. Holtec’s submissions to the NRC, including the company’s Facility Environmental Report and Safety Analysis Report, include statements that have the potential, intended or not, to mislead federal regulators as they consider the safety implications of the proposal. The letter outlines a number of concerns regarding Holtec’s proposal for a nuclear storage facility in Lea County – specifically safety concerns that have not been addressed and misrepresentations made by the company in its filings with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). The surface and mineral estate are split in ownership at the proposed location, with the Eddy-Lea Energy Alliance, LLC owning the surface land and the State Land Office owning the mineral estate. The proposed nuclear storage site is located in the middle of the Permian Basin, one of the world’s most productive oil and gas regions. Nearly 2,500 oil, gas, and mineral wells or sites are operated by 54 different businesses or entities within a 10 mile radius of the proposed site. Locating an interim nuclear storage site above active oil, gas, and mining operations raises serious safety concerns.last_img read more

Trinity On The Hill Episcopal Church Hosts Tea To Go-Go!

first_imgSamples of sweet and savory treats for Tea To Go-Go!TOTH News:Are you feeling a little claustrophobic these days wishing to “get-out” but not sure where to go? Wanting to renew a friendship from a socially acceptable distance? Are you missing tasty treats to accompany an afternoon tea? Would you like to support a wonderful cause? Even in these strange times, a dedicated group of volunteers would like to help you address these longings! Additionally, you will be helping Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church (TOTH) with a very important mission – building a home for a family in Juarez Mexico.These are difficult times for everyone but especially devastating for families struggling to obtain daily resources. Working side by side with the family themselves is truly a gift to all involved.We will be working on the “House of Hope” project led by a group called Mission’s Ministries who provides many services from medical care, to after school programs and most amazingly to assisting with home building for financially challenged families in Juarez.This will be TOTH’s 20th house building project! We hope to be able to get our hands dirty and personally assist with construction, but if this is not possible this year due to COVID-19, rest assured the money raised will be sent to build a home regardless of our physical presence. All proceeds from the tea will go directly to this fundraising effort. The tea will include a wide variety of high-quality sweet and savory treats that use only the best tried and tested recipes with locally sourced ingredients. All food items will be handmade from scratch by team members and friends, offering a feast for the eyes, as well as the palate. Delicious samplings, assembled into a to-go box, along with tea bags ready to brew, are all created with care and delivered to you through a no-contact drive through pick-up (or even delivered to your home upon request).  Once you have the makings for the tea, the decisions about who to share it with, and where that adventure takes place, are completely up to you. We provide the food – you provide the venue! Although the typical “sit-down” High Tea setting is especially loved by grandmothers, mothers and daughters, this year we have the possibility that the “take-way” option could be big for gentlemen, too, even younger guys looking for a unique date idea!   This COVID-19 era adaptation of the annual Trinity on the Hill High Tea, generally hosted in Kelly Hall, is taking it to the streets/parks/living rooms of Los Alamos and White Rock this year. Los Alamos Landscaping and Petree Gardens have graciously allowed us to turn their parking lot into a “drive-thru” pick-up station 1:30-4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 29 and arrangements for secure ordering and payment have been set up online. So, although the logistics may vary in 2020, the delectable experience will not, nor will the effort to provide housing for a family in need. We hope this endeavor will help bring people together in small ways as they enjoy the goodies and company of friends and family – all from an acceptable 6′ social distance! For more information on the event, to make a donation or to order your very own boxes, please visit: http://latoth.org.
