We stand together in protest of the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Plan for a Defense Waste Repository.
Nara Visa, NM, a small tight knit agricultural community is the location of a proposed site for borehole testing. DOE contractor, ENERCON, has been deceptive in gaining entrance into this community; claiming community buy-in when there is overwhelming proof to the contrary. In fact, the opposition is strong against their proposal.
After reading the DOE’s draft plan, and assessing our community’s situation, it is clear to us that the ‘consent-based siting process’ regarded by the DOE as a ‘critical element’ (DWR 2016, p.v) in siting potential host communities has been completely disregarded.
The deception by DOE contractors, coupled with the highly probable long-term implications of these test boreholes leave no doubt in our minds. We are unequivocally opposed to the test borehole project sited for Quay County, NM.
We, the undersigned, are unequivocally opposed to the test borehole project sited for Quay County, NM.
