DEC Public Meeting

The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is seeking comments on the 2020 Draft Integrated Water Quality Monitoring and Assessment Report.

Every two years, DEC is required to report on the condition of Alaska’s waters according to the federal Clean Water Act (CWA). This report describes to Alaskans the health of Alaska’s waters and includes the list of impaired (polluted) waters. The Integrated Report also helps the State prioritize waters for appropriate action such as data gathering, watershed protection, and restoration of impaired waters.

The 2020 Integrated Report reflects changes to previous years’ reports. DEC is proposing a number of changes to existing waterbody classifications, including identifying healthy waters and removing waters from the impaired list where there are now plans in place or more recent data shows the water to be healthy.

Significant changes include:

  • 11 Ketchikan beaches are proposed as Category 5 for impairment from bacteria
  • Silver Bay is proposed as Category 4b for residues
  • Cold Bay is proposed as Category 4b for petroleum hydrocarbons
  • Lake Lucile is proposed as Category 4a for PAH
  • Tongass Narrows is proposed as Category 2 for residues
  • King Cove is proposed as Category 2 for residues

A public meeting will be held virtually on February 24, 2021 from 4-6:00pm, instructions for attending the public meeting remotely and the full list of waters can be found on the DEC web site:
