pipeline

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

The Army Corps of Engineers held a meeting Thursday in Fairbanks to hear input on a new plan for the proposed Alaska Standalone Pipeline. It was the third of 10 such meetings the agency is conducting in communities along the route of the 733-mile-long pipeline the state wants to build to bring natural gas from the North Slope to the Interior and Southcentral Alaska.

Cleanup work began this month at a mothballed pump station near Delta Junction that was part of the old Haines to Fairbanks Pipeline. Crews will remove contaminated materials from the Timber Pump Station and two other sites that were part of an old Army-operated pipeline built in the 1950s to transport fuel to the Interior’s three military bases.
