Alamogordo - The Friendliest Place On Earth
Fuel Industries Dig for Atari
On March 31, 2014 the New Mexico Environment Department, Environmental Protection Division, Solid Waste Bureau approved the Waste Excavation Plan produced by Souder, Miller and Associates for FUEL Industries. FUEL Industries, in an agreement reached with the City in 2013, would like to film and record the unearthing of the infamous Atari video games - E.T. the Extra Terrestrial that was supposedly buried there in 1983.
As a condition of FUEL Industries accessing and filming on City Property, FUEL agrees to comply with all conditions as stated in the Waste Excavation Health and Safety Plan. In addition to receiving instruction on general site construction safety procedures, all film personnel will also be supervised by the Site Supervisor & Safety Officer during excavation activities. Continuous monitoring of air and excavated waste will be overseen by Souder Miller and Associates and Operational Consultants. Site control, security, hazard assessment, accident prevention, and other issues are all addressed in detail in the Waste Excavation Plan and Health and Safety Plan and is available HERE.
The City has been made aware of the Waste Excavation Plan and Health and Safety Plan and is working in cooperation with all parties involved to exercise precautions and to ensure the safety of its citizenry.
The dig will begin on Friday, April 25, 2014 with digging taking place throughout that weekend. The public is invited to come see what is uncovered on Saturday 4/26. Digging should be completed by that Sunday, with fresh fill being put into the trench by Monday April 28, 2014.

Construction at Panorama & Hamilton will begin April 7. The contractor will be working Monday through Thursday from 7 am to 5 pm. The road will not be closed to traffic but there will be traffic control set up and the intersection will likely get congested. Suggested alternate routes are Desert Lakes Drive south of the project area and First Street if you will be traveling north. We thank you for your patience.
