Kwethluk water supply tainted

On the Y-K Delta

 


Petroleum products have leaked into the Kwethluk water supply from a barge that sank nearby in the river in October and is now trapped under the ice, according to KTUU.com. Local officials reported that the watering hole that villagers use for drinking water began to sicken people. Since December, local government has shipped in potable water.
