This week, the U.S. Department of Energy and Los Alamos National Laboratory announced plans to re-package 60 barrels of radioactive waste next spring. The containers have been under surveillance since 2014, when one barrel ruptured and forced the shut-down of a waste isolation plant south of Carlsbad, NM.

Jenna Marshall reached out to the Los Alamos Study Group to ask about the significance of the re-package, and future implications for the national lab. As of air time, there was no response from the Department of Energy.
