Past Work on Site

First entered YRITWC database in March 2019. The tank farm is located near the old school fire site. It is owned by the Lower Yukon School District. On site, there are the two original fuel tanks. The site is a major concern for the community because a lot of traditional plants are harvested near the site for traditional medicine. In addition, children are known to play near the site due to the site being so close to the grocery store. There has been spills at the site. Community members recall the Alaska National Guard sent personnel to contain the spill.
