ONRT Draft Addendum to Restoration Plans
The Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe Tie-Treater and the South Valley Sites are two Superfund Sites in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The State of New Mexico, acting through the New Mexico Office of Natural Resources Trustee (ONRT), conducted a natural resource damage assessment for each of the sites to evaluate the natural resource injuries and plan restoration. After reaching settlements with the responsible parties for each site, ONRT developed groundwater restoration plans in the early 2000s and implemented several restoration projects. After implementing the selected restoration projects, ONRT determined that restoration funding remains from groundwater projects implemented from both settlements. As such, additional restoration is needed to provide sufficient groundwater benefits to compensate for the losses at these two sites. ONRT's proposed restoration project is evaluated in this August 2022 Draft Addendum to the Restoration Plans for the Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe Tie-Treater and South Valley Superfund Sites.
ONRT will accept written comments until the end of the business day (5pm MST) on Friday, September 30, 2022. The Draft Addendum is available at ONRT's website: https://onrt.env.nm.gov/
