Cook Inlet Risk Assessment panel members named

Members of the new Cook Inlet Risk Assessment panel were announced Tuesday after the management team postponed the first meeting of the panel.

Applications for the panel exceeded expectations, with 43 candidates applying for a seat on the panel. The first meeting is now tentatively scheduled for late October, with an agenda that includes the panel’s charter, protocol and consideration of the traffic analysis.

The team announced 15 primary members for the panel, as well as a number of alternates who could fill in if the primary representative for their area of knowledge is unable to participate.

The Cook Inlet Risk Assessment is an undertaking to consider marine transportation in the Cook Inlet, and what might be needed to make it safer.
