This last week a radiation leak happened at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant, or WIPP, in Carlsbad, New Mexico. I wrote previously on WIPP as another example of the military colonization of New Mexico, especially in terms of the nuclear industry.
Reports say 13 above ground workers have been contaminated by radiation. But the DOE is saying that Carlsbad Caverns is perfectly safe! Gotta reassure the tourists, the economic backbone of this region after WIPP.
Heres a release by the Southwest Research and Information Center, an Albuquerque-based watchdog group: http://sric.org/nuclear/docs/WIPP_Leak_02272014.pdf

I will give my own research on this soon.
