The Environmental Protection Agency is planning to send mobile environmental monitoring units to the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant.

New Mexico State Senators asked the E.P.A. to send the air monitors to Carlsbad.

The monitors will be conducting independent tests that they are hoping will help answer safety questions from the community.

This is all following the radiation leak that happened at the plant on Valentine's Day.
