Public weighs in on state water quality application to EPA

Public comment on the state’s application was held in Anchorage last night. About 17 people signed up to testify, all but 2 spoke against the transfer from the EPA to the state.  Although most of the speakers were representing Native communities or organizations, most questioned the timing of a hearing on an issue important to tribes being held during the height of subsistence gathering.
