Coastal states eyeing $50K in debris aid

JUNEAU - West Coast states plan to seek small federal grants to clean up rubbish that washes ashore - including any debris from last year's devastating tsunami in Japan. However, the window for using the money this year is starting to close in Alaska with its remote, rugged beaches and early winter. Alaska is expected to miss the early-August "best window" for cleanup of outer coastal areas, said Elaine Busse Floyd, who is the lead on marine debris planning for Alaska's Department of Environmental Conservation.

State issues permit for power plant in Interior

The state of Alaska has issued a key permit to allow a mothballed 50-megawatt coal power plant in Interior Alaska to restart, officials with Golden Valley Electric Association, the Interior Alaska electric cooperative, said Feb. 6. Alaska's Department of Environmental Conservation issued what is essentially a renewal of an air quality permit issued earlier for the Healy Clean Coal Project, which was built in the late 1990s to test experimental new air emissions technology, according to Brian Newton, Golden Valley's president.
