For our Neighbors in South Dakota

We think it's important to keep our neighbors informed about the construction of the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility and the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment. To ensure that you have the most up-to-date information, we've set up a website that contains information about the LBNF/DUNE project, and answers to frequently asked questions.

We also welcome your questions and comments:

At Fermilab: Kurt Riesselmann, 630-840-5681 or Send Mail
At Sanford Lab: Constance Walter, 605-722-4025 or Send Mail

Below you’ll find links to talks that were presented at informational meetings.

Environmental Assessment

With the help of a number of technical experts, including independent consultants assisted by Fermilab and Sanford Lab staff, the U.S. Department of Energy prepared an environmental assessment to determine what impacts LBNF/DUNE construction and operation might have on human health and environment. Public meetings were held on June 17, 2015 in Lead, South Dakota, June 18, 2015 in Rapid City, South Dakota, and June 24, 2015 in Batavia, Illinois.
