Problems/Comments

Location of Scottie Creek scraper trap. The Corps of Engineers has identified the most likely locations where petroleum contamination might be present, including: 1) valves, 2) locations of documented spills, 3) locations where contamination has been noted by local residents or other persons, and 4) scraper traps and pump stations. These locations were the basis for the Site Investigations that were conducted in order to determine if petroleum contamination is present along the pipeline. Interviews of personnel who worked on the pipeline stated that significant volumes (1,000’s of gallons) of fuel were released to the ground during pigging operations at the site. The trap was located on the north side of the Alaska Highway, west of the Scottie Creek Lodge entrance. The pipeline and trap assembly have been removed from this area. Only the concrete slab foundations for the trap assembly remain in place. November 2016: An excavation is planned in the future - DNR has given access to the property.
