No Mixing Zones in Alaska Salmon Streams sign now

A RESOLUTION OPPOSING POLLUTING MIXING ZONES IN ALASKA SALMON STREAMS

WHEREAS, the Alaska Department of Environment Conservation recently proposed new rules to allow mixing zones in Alaska fish streams;

WHEREAS, mixing zones allow pollution at levels that violate standards designed to protect fish and fish consumers;

WHEREAS, Alaska salmon require clean water and healthy habitats to thrive and reproduce;

WHEREAS, Alaskas wild salmon are renowned worldwide for being clean, fresh and healthy;

WHEREAS, Alaska salmon fisheries support countless families and communities throughout the state, and form part of the cultural fabric which makes Alaska unique;

WHEREAS, salmon health, salmon habitat and salmon marketing will suffer under a broad new rule allowing increased pollution into Alaskas salmon streams;

WHEREAS, the state of Alaska has limited technical and financial resources to assess the consequences of allowing increased pollution into Alaskas salmon streams; and

WHEREAS, Alaskans resoundingly opposed a similar proposal from the Murkowski Administration last year, and vital local and state government resources are being diverted to undermine fish stream and salmon marketing protections;

NOW, THEREFORE, the undersigned do hereby oppose the Murkowski Administrations proposal to amend 18 AAC 70.240 to allow increased pollution through the use of mixing zones - Alaskas salmon streams.
