Last year, the Legislature approves new regulations for cruise ships to release wastewater into Alaska’s oceans. Since then, the state has developed a permit process based on those regulations, and that permit process is now open for public comment. Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation’s Division of Water Director Michelle Hale stopped in Ketchikan on Wednesday to talk to the Chamber of Commerce about the permit process, and what the state is doing to protect Alaska’s environment.
