Beginning in February 2013, the public finally received the opportunity to see that the WIPP site was in fact, subject to the same issues that a normal business has – it is vulnerable.
Is WIPP in danger of extinction? No, but operationally it is time to look at the situation and make some serious decisions to keep up with the times.
I have been involved with WIPP since the early 1990s and most recently, my company, PECOS Management Services, Inc. was the Independent Oversight Contractor from 2005 through 2010. Through that contract, we studied the heath and safety aspects of the site and the processes associated with the operations of WIPP.
