LANL Closes Trails On Lab Property To Public, KOAT, July 9, 2011:
[...] According to [Chris Cantwell, the lab's associate director for environment, safety, health and quality] only one acre burned on lab property, but two major canyons above the lab suffered damage.
Cantwell said lab crews had also begun installing additional storm water controls and monitoring systems in canyon bottoms where trace Cold War-era contamination may be present. The controls were aimed at slowing the ability of sediments to move down canyon.
