Borehole HOT News, May 2017
Do El Paso, Texas, Dell City, Texas, Hudspeth County, Texas know about the risks to their water? The Borehole plan calls for multiple penetrations of the aquifer, with no independent oversight of the drilling. Texas has been excluded from all public meetings.

DOE’s May 22, 2017 response (first), HERE.

The District 3 Otero County Commissioner, Lori Bies, again failed to represent her constituents and enabled the DOE nuclear deep borehole project during Friday’s Commission meeting (5/12/17). We were disappointed by this betrayal. See my complete comments HERE.
