Efforts to clean up contaminated sites from military installations and other sources have been ongoing in Alaska since the 1980s. New sites continue to be identified and rural Alaska is disproportionately impacted.

While state and federal health studies recommend continued reliance upon traditional foods, St. Lawrence Island community members fear those foods may be contributing to elevated levels of PCBs and higher cancer rates.

This year, Congress expanded eligibility requirements and grant limits under the Environmental Protection Agency’s Brownfields Program. Brownfields funds support the redevelopment of property which may have contaminants from prior use. Anchorage, Mat-Su Borough, and Kodiak Island Borough are current recipients of these funds.
