Please use caution with debris burning, campfires, and anything else that start a wildfire. While Division of Forestry burn permits are not required at this time of year, you must follow safe-burning guidelines. Refrain from burning if it is windy.

Alaska DOT&PF Releases West Susitna Access Study

Public NoticesThe Department of Transportation and Public Facilities has issued a report for public review. Termed a “Reconnaissance” report, the study identifies locations that may benefit from surface access (i.e. road and/or rail) and evaluates the potential access routes. More specifically, the study identifies:
Resource development and use opportunities west of the Susitna River;
One or more potential crossings of the Susitna River; and,
One or more potential transportation corridors to access identified resources.
The majority of the area under study is not accessible by the existing road network. Providing surface access to some of these natural resource-dense areas could facilitate further exploration, development, and use of these resources. Natural resource development in Alaska helps to create jobs and stimulate the economy. Creating access to resources also enables residents and visitors to use the land recreationally. Public review and comment on the study is invited.

BREAKING NEWS: Alaska Crime Lab Investigation

Public Notices(ANCHORAGE, Alaska) – The Department of Public Safety Scientific Crime Detection Laboratory has discovered irregularities involving six controlled substance reference standards used in the testing of illegal drugs. Those six are morphine, oxycodone, hydrocodone, opium, codeine, and amphetamine. Foreign matter was discovered in these controlled substance reference standards. An audit of the Crime Lab’s controlled substance reference standards is underway. The Crime Lab is also notifying its accrediting body, The American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors/Laboratory Accreditation Board. The irregularities found do not impact the Crime Lab’s ability to identify submitted suspected controlled substances or the scientific validity of past lab tests.

The irregularities were discovered when new, more sensitive testing instruments began to be used by the Crime Lab. The discovery of irregularities in the standards has prompted a broader review, to include a criminal investigation, which is being performed by the Alaska State Troopers, Alaska Bureau of Investigation.
