Los Alamos Airport Fuel Farm Current Updates


Construction of the Airport Fuel Farm is progressing. In coordination with the Department of Public Utilities, crews completed relocation of an existing sewer line and an underground primary electric line that conflicted with the fuel farm. Installation of storm drains and the secondary containment system is nearing completion with installation of the fuel system foundation and utility service connections to follow. The project was scheduled for completion late September, barring any delays with material deliveries. However, the contractor was notified by the fuel tank supplier that the manufacture and delivery of the fuel tanks will be delayed moving final completion to late October. The project is funded through a New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) aviation grant.
