 Sandia National Laboratories, Albuquerque New Mexico

 

SandiaSandia National Laboratories

Sandia is a DOE site from 1945 to the present so claimants are eligible to file claims under Part B and Part E.

Sandia has two Special Exposure Cohorts which cover all workers with specific cancers and at least 250 days of employment for January 1, 1949 through December 31, 1994.

Sandia National Laboratory originated in 1945 as the Z Division of Los Alamos, the engineering arm of the US nuclear weapons development program. Formally established as Sandia National Laboratories in 1949, it was given the mission to design the non-nuclear components for nuclear weapons. Since 1953, areas have been used to test nuclear and non-nuclear weapons components. From 1946-1957, Sandia also housed a weapons assembly line and from 1963-1971, an onsite liquid waste disposal system for liquid radioactive discharges from the Sandia Experimental Reactor Facility.

Throughout the course of its operations, the potential for beryllium exposure existed at this site, due to beryllium use, residual contamination, and decontamination activities.

Sandia National Laboratory is located about seven miles east of Albuquerque, New Mexico on about 2,820 acres within the Kirtland Air Force Base.   .
