Violations of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (Sandia National Laboratories)

“On July 2, 2004, the New Mexico Environment Department issued three administrative compliance orders to the DoE and Sandia Corporation. Sandia Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lockheed Martin, is the management and operating contractor for Sandia National Laboratories pursuant to a contract with DoE, and is the co-operator of the facility. The orders allege violations of regulations under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act pertaining to matters such as the accumulation of materials for re-use, record-keeping, waste characterization, and other management issues. The order seeks penalties totaling $3.2 million for the alleged violations. Sandia and DoE are contesting the orders. On November 17, 2005, the parties entered into a Stipulated Partial Order resolving approximately half of the alleged violations for a total of approximately $270,000. The other allegations remain unresolved and under discussion.”
