Public meeting on Drift River today

Posted: Tuesday, April 07, 2009

Local residents curious to learn more about the volcano and the situation at the Drift River Terminal will have the opportunity to do so tonight.

Members of the Unified Command, a joint body that includes representatives from the Department of Environmental Conservation, the Coast Guard and Cook Inlet Pipe Line Co., the operator of the terminal, will be on hand from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. to field questions from the public at the Challenger Learning Center of Alaska in Kenai.

"We wanted to give Kenai Peninsula residents a chance to voice their questions and concerns," said Trent Dodson, public outreach director for the Cook Inlet Regional Citizens Advisory Council.

CIRCAC is hosting the meeting.

The UC and the Alaska Volcano Observatory have held several briefings in Anchorage on the status of the volcano and operations at the terminal since the volcano first erupted. This will be the first such event on the peninsula.

Residents unable to attend the meeting may also call in by dialing 866-744-4861, and entering the access code, 3986553#.
