Staying Informed

 

Since the discovery of sulfolane in private drinking water wells in 2009, DEC has maintained communications with the people of North Pole. The outreach effort has been in collaboration with other stakeholders, including the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services and Flint Hills Resources Alaska.

 

DEC has used many forms of communication to ensure that the community is well informed of the status of the site and on how to prevent potential exposure to sulfolane. For details on the outreach efforts please see the site history page. Key avenues of communication have included:

 

 

Open houses and workshops

These provide a forum where community members can meet and talk one‐on‐one with appropriate technical and regulatory officials and learn important information about the project. These events are publicly advertised and open to anyone interested.
