JUNEAU - Alaska Electric Light & Power Co. will test its Salmon Creek Dam emergency evacuation sirens at 9 a.m. today.
Salmon Creek Dam flood plain is an area that crosses Glacier Highway, Hospital Drive, Egan Drive and Channel Drive.
The dam is about two miles above Gastineau Channel and was built between July 1913 and August 1914 as a hydro project to provide electricity. It also became a source of city water in the 1980s.
