ASRC Responds to BLM Strategic Plan

ASRC is pleased that the longstanding need for the cleanup of the United States Navy exploration
program on the North Slope continues to be addressed by the Bureau of Land Management
(BLM). The 2013 Strategic Plan carries a significant work commitment by the BLM. All North Slope
residents will be grateful when the most hazardous and pressing remnants of more than forty years
of Navy-sponsored explorations are remediated to make the lands safe and clean.
ASRC firmly believes that the cost of the cleanup of the Navy exploration program should come
from the federal government itself, as it is with all Formerly Used Defense sites, for example, and
not from any federal funds that would have otherwise been allocated directly to North Slope
communities.
