The Department of Energy/National Nuclear Security Administration (DOE/NNSA) and Sandia Corporation (Sandia) submitted a request for a Class 3 Modification to the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act Facility Operating Permit (the Permit) for Sandia National Laboratories (SNL). The DOE/NNSA and Sandia are requesting that the New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) designate solid waste management units (SWMUs) 8, 58, 68, 149, 154, and 502 as approved for Corrective Action Complete status. 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 was 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. Posters were available for review, and personnel from SNL were available to answer questions during the entire meeting. Attendees were also able to make written comments during the meeting. All written comments submitted during the meeting will be forwarded to the NMED. The posters and handouts that were available at the meeting consist of 10 documents that are grouped according to topic.
