The Organized Village of Kasaan established its Brownfields Program to identify and clean up possibly contaminated sites in the Kasaan Bay Watershed. So far, we have identified 35 areas of concern. The sites consist of abandoned mines and prospects
The basis of our Environmental program is the concern of our clean water and contaminated lands. We have over 35 mines in our area that pose a risk of contamination in the form of runoff from mine tailing. We also have concerns about petroleum contamination due to old canneries and logging areas. Our focus is on outreach and education for the town and surrounding communities to prevent any further contamination.
Some of the main projects we have been working on are:
2019 Earth Day. "I DIG BROWNFIELDS"
