Another WIPP town hall meeting planned

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – There is another town hall meeting Friday night to help answer questions following the radiation leak at WIPP.

Many left Thursday night’s meeting with the Department of Energy uneasy.

They pleaded for more information about the underground radiation leak last month that seeped outside, but many remain frustrated and concerned for their safety.

The DOE tried to reassure people they are safe even though the underground storage areas remained sealed off.

Friday’s town hall meeting with congressman Pearce will be at 4 at the Leo Sweet Center in Carlsbad.
