The DOE/NNSA and Sandia have implemented corrective measures at these 6 SWMUs in accordance with the requirements of an April 2004 Compliance Order on Consent between NMED, DOE, and Sandia, and the plans approved by NMED. The NMED made preliminary determinations in January and February 2016 that corrective action is complete at these SWMUs, which are located on Kirtland Air Force Base immediately southeast of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Information about these SWMUs will be presented in poster format at a meeting on Tuesday, June 21, 2016, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at Manzano Mesa Multigenerational Center, located at 501 Elizabeth SE in Albuquerque.
