Heckavajob, McMillan. In addition to losing over $220 million in future clean-up work at LANL, LANS mismanagement also helped result in over $54 million in fines from the state of New Mexico. Charlie, however, will keep his job along with his perky $2 million per year in LANS compensation, no doubt.
Mishaps at nuke repository lead to $54M in fines
AP News - Dec 6th 2014
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico on Saturday levied more than $54 million in penalties against the U.S. Department of Energy for numerous violations that resulted in the indefinite closure of the nation's only underground nuclear waste repository.
The state Environment Department delivered a pair of compliance orders to Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, marking the state's largest penalty ever imposed on the agency. Together, the orders outline more than 30 state permit violations at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant in southeastern New Mexico and at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
The orders and the civil penalties that come with them are just the beginning of possible financial sanctions the Energy Department could face in New Mexico. The state says it's continuing to investigate and more fines are possible.
Upper management being held accountable at LANL? Nah, that hardly ever happens unless some outside agency discovers massive screw-ups.
