LANL spends millions of dollars each year to protect water resources.

Fact Check » «

LANL has many programs to protect rainwater running on the surface and in canyons and also to protect groundwater under stream beds, in rock layers and in the regional aquifer. Protections include removing sources of contamination, controlling water so contaminants are not washed away, removing sediment from water before it leaves LANL property, and testing groundwater and surface water to ensure that protections are working.
