Community Assistance Program

Members of the Carlsbad Mayor’s Nuclear Opportunities Committee routinely request copies of reports issued by WIPP’s regulators and DOE Headquarters oversight organizations. In the interest of transparency, the reports will be uploaded to this page for the current fiscal year and then archived. If you have questions about any of the reports, please contact the WIPP Information Center at 1-800-336-9477.
