Corrales Doesn't Want Intel To Expand

The Alibi summarizes the conflict between some who live in Corrales, NM and Intel in Rio Rancho, where Intel is asking for changes to it’s air permit.

It was standing room only at an Intel-facilitated meeting Monday, March 28. More than 75 people crowded into the Corrales Senior Center.

For years, residents have been saying emissions from the 4-million square-foot facility cause respiratory problems. The computer chip manufacturer’s neighbors have reported acrid-smelling air, burning eyes and noses, and what Lynne Kinis called the “Intel cough.” She and other Corrales residents are circulating a petition asking the state’s Environmental Department to deny the permit.

Intel has no immediate plans to expand, but Environmental Engineer Sarah Chavez said it’s not out of the question.
