Since the incidents at WIPP in February the city of Carlsbad has been holding periodic town hall meetings to update the public on the situation at WIPP. These meetings have been broadcast online and the public has been allowed to ask questions via online submission. That sadly hasn’t obligated DOE or the contractor running WIPP to actually answer them or even take them seriously. It isn’t just the public attending the meetings online but those who showed up in person to sit in on the meetings that have expressed considerable frustration with the non answers and sometimes outright scoffing at the public that has been going on.
The questions below came from some members of our research team and a number of random individuals that showed up to ask questions. We shared all the questions, not just ours as their questions are just as valid as ours and deserve answers. These questions relate to the current safety situation at WIPP and the potential for other undesired outcomes. DOE and the contractor’s lack of accountability to the general public is concerning. This is a sad but somewhat expected behavior by DOE and the contractor. Both still act like the public exists in an ignorant, uninformed 1960′s world. People are more educated and have access to much more information than they did fifty years ago. DOE & the contractor’s lack of transparency and accountability must change.
