Water near WIPP shows no contamination

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Water samples from reservoirs near the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant near Carlsbad show no signs of contamination after a radiation leak at the plant.

WIPP officials say independent researchers tested the samples and found no trace of radioactive particles.

WIPP says samples that had previously tested positive have now returned to normal.

Officials say the results confirm what the plant’s own monitoring program found.
