Assuring Clean Air, Clean Water, and Continued Access to Subsistence Resources
Alaskans have some of the cleanest air and water in the world. The development pressure on Alaska’s environment, however, has never been greater. Currently there is an unprecedented increase in the number of large mines being proposed throughout Alaska. Under current State statutes, there is no public notice, little oversight, and no determination as to whether allowing even highly destructive exploration activities – drilling, excavation, heavy water use, and the like – are in the public interest. Trustees for Alaska takes action to assure that environmental laws protecting clean air and water are enforced and decision-makers are held accountable.
