EPA adds more air monitors near WIPP

CARLSBAD, N.M. (KRQE) – The Environmental Protection Agency is adding more air monitors at WIPP to double check WIPP’s testing.

They’re being put next to the existing ones to make sure the WIPP readings on airborne radiation are accurate.

Last week, the first crews were sent underground to start investigating what caused the February leak.

WIPP says it doesn’t know when they’ll be sent back down saying it’s making sure crews are prepared for anything that could happen down there.
