In 2009, an Environmental Management Plan was drafted that encompassed a review and evaluation of state-owned, federally managed and privately-owned properties, with known and potential impact in Tanana, in order to identify known and suspect environmental hinderances that could be a threat to human health or the environment and pose an obstacle for the safe reuse and redevelopment of property in and around the community.
