Annual Groundwater Open House to be Held in Beatty, NV
On Wednesday, December 11, 2013, the U.S. Department of Energy, National Nuclear Security Administration’s Nevada Field Office will hold its 5th annual Groundwater Open House in Beatty, Nevada.
Federal, State, and County representatives will be on hand at the event, scheduled from 4:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., at the Beatty Community Center (100 A Avenue South, Beatty, NV) to provide updates on the intensive work being done to understand groundwater affected by historic underground nuclear testing at the Nevada National Security Site.
Open house participants will be able to talk one-on-one with experts on topics such as computer modeling, hydrology, and groundwater sampling at dozens of wells across the NNSS and surrounding federal lands. Additional groundwater monitoring activities will be highlighted, as wells as opportunities for community involvement.
“We always look forward to coming out to the communities and providing updates on the important work being done at the site,” said Environmental Management Operations Manager, Rob Boehlecke. “Attendees can focus on subjects that are important to them, ask questions and get immediate answers.”
In addition to posters and one-on-one discussions, the open house will feature computer modeling animation depicting the complex geologic subsurface of the NNSS. A groundwater video, along with brochures, handouts, and environmental reports will also be available.
