Alaska’s Department of Environmental Conservation’s mission is: Conserving, improving and protecting Alaska’s natural resources and environment to enhance the health, safety, economic and social well-being of Alaskans.

“We are deeply concerned that the governor would weaken our democracy by eliminating public participation in decisions that affect our water quality, fish habitat, and public health,” said Pamela Miller, Biologist and Executive Director of Alaska Community Action on Toxics.

Proposed pesticide regulation changes would:

  • Eliminate permit requirements for the spraying of pesticides on state public lands with no safeguards for the protection of sensitive waterways, drinking water sources, fish and wildlife habitat, or public health;
  • Block public participation in decisions about pesticide spraying on public lands—with no public hearings, opportunity for written public comments, or way to appeal bad decisions. This would deprive Alaskans of our right to speak out about potential harm to our drinking water, fishing streams, subsistence uses, dangers to our children and public health;
  • Promote the application of potentially harmful pesticides and herbicides without consideration of toxicity and effects to health and the environment;
  • Weaken public right-to-know requirements to notify the public about places where the pesticides will be sprayed.
