PFAS Site Characterization Work Plan Proposal for Gustavus Airport - Public Comment Period Open


The Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF), State of Alaska, proposes to conduct site characterization of the PFAS plume at the Gustavus airport. The draft work plan (attached), authored by Shannon & Wilson, Inc. on behalf of DOT&PF, is to be issued for public notice with a 10-day comment period to allow those with knowledge of the proposed area stated within the work plan an opportunity to provide the department and its contractor with local knowledge that could impact the mission of the project.

The intent of this notice is informal and the department will not be issuing a response to comments other than confirmation that they were received. Once all comments have been reviewed, the draft work plan will then be submitted to the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) for review. As the regulator, final approval of the methodology and overall plan falls to DEC.

All comments will be reviewed by one or more of the following:
- Shannon & Wilson, Inc.

All comments must be submitted electronically to  and must be received by 5 p.m., Sunday, July 7, 2019 after which the department PFAS Coordinator will work with State of Alaska subject-matter experts to review each comment. Anyone needing special accommodations may call TDD 1-800-770-TYPE.

The department reserves the right to correct technical defects, premises description, term, or purposes and may reject any or all applications or comments.

It is the policy of the DOT&PF that no person shall be excluded from participation in, or be denied benefits of, any programs or activities we provide based on race, religion, gender, age, marital status, ability, or national origin, regardless of the funding source including Federal Transit Administration, Federal Aviation Administration, Federal Highway Administration and State of Alaska Funds.
