The Airport Fuel Farm Project is a project included in the 2013 LAM Airport Master Plan.  Project design has been completed by WSP USA, Inc. through an on-call engineering services task order.  The design includes the construction and installation of two 12,000-gallon above ground steel double-walled fuel storage tanks for aviation jet fuel and aviation gasoline and all necessary site work, traffic control management, utility infrastructure and connections, storm water management, spill containment and emergency shut-offs.  The fuel farm will be located on the north side of the Airport property on the concrete apron east of the Airport terminal building.  This location offers a convenient location to pilots while improving safety as it will be further away from the runway and nearby roadways than the current fueling facility.  Once the fuel farm is commissioned and operational, the temporary fuel storage tanks that serve Classic Air Medical at the south side of the Airport near NM 502 will also be removed.  Currently, jet fuel sales are not available at the Airport and the completion of this project will provide a self-service point-of-sale fuel dispensing system for both jet fuel and aviation gasoline.  Adding jet fuel service will contribute to the self-sufficiency of the Airport and will be especially important for future emergency situations such as forest fires. Additionally, this service may improve visitation to the Los Alamos area and help make the airport more viable for any future airline service.
