Environment assessment of fiber optic line to Laboratory shows no significant impact

The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Los Alamos Field Office has prepared the final environmental assessment (EA) report, and associated Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the construction and operation of a second fiber optic line to the Laboratory and Los Alamos County. The EA analyzed the potential environmental effects that could result from the proposal that would provide redundant voice, data, and internet services. Based on the analysis in the Final EA, NNSA has determined that a FONSI is appropriate and will proceed with the proposed action to construct a second fiber optic line.
