Basic Contracting Services, based in Artesia, N.M., will use currently employed, experienced, and well-trained security forces at the dam, BuRec said. The company also plans to recruit and hire employees from the Northern Arizona labor sector and train the new workers in physical and electronic surveillance and detection methods.
