US Energy Secretary to visit WIPP

CARLSBAD, N.M. (KRQE) – The U.S. Energy Secretary will be in Carlsbad next month to visit WIPP.

Ernest Moniz will be there August 12th to talk with Senators Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich and Representative Steve Pearce about recovery funding.

This comes following February’s leak at WIPP that sent radioactive particles into the air contaminating 22 workers and shutting down the plant.

The incident is still under investigation.
