Project scope

This project will do a comprehensive study of the subsurface aquifers in the Birchwood-Chugiak-Eagle River area.

Project need

A majority of the developed properties in Birchwood-Chugiak-Eagle River rely upon on-site water well and septic systems rather than public utilities. Little is known of the location of all subsurface aquifers that serve these rural properties. Proper planning requires identification of the aquifers. Insufficient information can produce negative impacts on the health and the environment as well as to the pocketbook. This study is included in the Chugiak-Eagle River Comprehensive Plan.

Project status

No work is underway. State grant funding is proposed.

BCC would like to honor the mayor's request and has selected only 1 priority project for the PM&E and State categories. BCC voted to delete all other projects from the 2017 CIP lists, but requests to keep the project list available for future consideration.
