Flint Hills, State Remain Crossed Over Sulfolane Clean Up

Flint Hills continues to push for a less stringent standard for removal of a spilled chemical from groundwater at the company’s shuttered North Pole refinery. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, removal of the industrial solvent sulfolane (SULL-fo-lane) is costing the refinery a lot of money, and opinions differ on how clean groundwater should be.

Dan has been in public radio news in Alaska since 1993. He’s worked as a reporter, newscaster and talk show host at stations in McGrath, Valdez and Fairbanks. Dan’s experience includes coverage of a wide range of topics, from wolf control to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and dog mushing.
