EPA chief visits rural Alaska communities

Posted: Thursday, July 29, 2010

ANCHORAGE - The head of the Environmental Protection Agency is in the state listening to concerns expressed by southwest Alaska communities.

EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson on Wednesday was scheduled to visit Dillingham to meet with Bristol Bay region tribal governments, Native corporations and other organizations to get their views on the proposed Pebble Mine.

If the proposed mine's backers apply for development permits, EPA will be in charge of the environmental impact study.

The companies have indicated they may apply for permits next year.

Jackson also is scheduled to visit Kasigluk, Napakiak, Chefornak and Bethel.
