Middle Reservoir Action Memo

Middle Reservoir Action Memo (2012) requests approval for a time-critical removal action at the Middle Reservoir Road Radiation Site in the Village of Paguate, Pueblo of Laguna, located in Cibola County, New Mexico. The action includes the securing, relinquishment of ownership by the current resident/owner to the Village of Paguate, of the historically/culturally significant residential structure (house) contaminated with excess levels of Radon-222 that cannot be feasibly abated, and the construction of a replacement house that is decent, safe and sanitary.
