I'm surprised Bechtel couldn't find a way to pin this on the janitor.

I'm surprised you couldn't come up with a more asinine comment.

Let's review, shall we. Half billion dollar shutdown caused by, "sloppy note taking", and, "kitty litter." Asinine is the right word for such phoney baloney. The people in charge should be fired, not the cowboy-buttheads taking notes and filling barrels with kitty litter.

The fault lies completely with DOE. They are forcing the shutdown duration and restart requirements (and therefore costs) that are absolutely ridiculous. Risk-averse, ignorant, fearful bureaucrats. Supported by risk-averse, ignorant, and fearful citizens. Land of the free and home of the brave. Yeah.

The fault lies with DOE? That is a hoot! Ask anyone that has ever been a landlord and see if they operate in such an irresponsible manner. The DOE landlord owns the facility and the LANL occupant trashed it, rendering it useless to all occupants. DOE is acting as a responsible landlord and returning the facility to a fully useable condition for all occupants.

DOE adds no value whatsoever.

The facility is not "trashed." ONE DRUM leaked in one alcove. OK, that's done. Now who is causing the facility to stay closed for three years while endless study and paperwork is concluded to cover everyone's behinds?

"ONE DRUM leaked in one alcove."

It seems that you know more about the situation than what has been disclosed to the public. What you call a "leak" has variously been termed a "rupture" or an "explosion" by DOE. The drum was in "one alcove," but the radiation was spread throughout much of the facility according to DOE. This is no minor accident here, it is the largest screw-up in the history of the nuclear waste program.

1:34 is clueless. There have been literally hundreds of larger, more significant radiation leaks in the history of the nuclear weapons complex. Ever hear of the Hanford tanks? Rocky Flats? DP site? What makes this relatively minor incident significant is the deep, deep pockets and mindless, political drivel that accompanies it. As long as taxpayers and voters support such nonsense, it will continue. The sky isn't falling.

Yeah, this one drum was transported from LANL across NM highways to Carlsbad. Would the TRUPACT-II (tightly packed 14 55-gallon drums) have contained the explosion? Of course, not a problem.

Sorry, TRUPAC is not a 55-gallon drum.
