Health Impact Assessment-Comment Period Extended!

May 31, 2012

A draft of the rapid appraisal HIA has been released by the State of AK Department of Health and Social Services. Out of the 8 categories of potential impacts, 7 received an assessment of Medium to High risk!  Even so, it contains many data gaps and inaccuracies that can only be fixed by a Comprehensive HIA. Please read the report for yourself and provide comments by June 14th to Paul Anderson at hia@alaska.gov.  Comment form can be found here: WishboneHillCommentForm.

Or, if you need more assistance with this comment form, go HERE.

In addition, the Mat-Su Borough Assembly is considering a resolution on June 5th that would request a Comprehensive HIA on Wishbone Hill be done to give residents a more accurate and complete picture of health risks posed by the Wishbone Hill coal mine project.  Let them know you support this resolution by signing this LETTER.
