Relocation of Technical Area 18 Capabilities and Materials at the Los Alamos National Laboratory
The Department of Energy’s (DOE's) National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) is issuing this Record of Decision on the proposed relocation of Technical Area 18 (TA–18) capabilities and materials at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in the State of New Mexico. NNSA has decided to implement the Preferred Alternative, which would relocate Security Category I/II missions and related materials to the Device Assembly Facility at the Nevada Test Site. This alternative includes facility modification and transportation of special nuclear materials and equipment required to support Security Category I/II missions. Regarding Security Category III/IV alternatives, NNSA has determined that additional studies are required and thus is not making a decision on this set of missions.
