  1. There’s Probably a Permit for That…

What are you doing at the airport? If you are on ANC property providing a commercial service or sharing a message to people traversing the airport, chances are you need a Business Activity Permit. To make sure you have the permit and information you need to appropriately operate at the airport, please contact Brandon Tucker in our leasing department for help at brandon.tucker@alaska.gov.

  1. Airport PFAS Testing:

The Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (DOT&PF) is working with Shannon & Wilson, Inc. (S&W) and the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to identify and sample water supply wells potentially affected by PFAS near the ANC. Water supply well investigations and sampling continue to occur within the study area adjacent to the airport boundary, with all results expected to arrive throughout January and February. DOT&PF’s PFAS program is available to present at community councils about the testing program. Sampling results to date have not found PFAS above DEC’s action levels. Upon the completion of the sampling effort, DOT&PF’s PFAS program will produce a publicly available report that includes a map of sample locations and results.

  1. Lake Hood Seaplane Base:

The world’s largest sea plane base is frozen over. Plane owners have switched from floats to skis to be able to land on the ice. No matter how tempting, no people or pets are allowed on lake surfaces; only aircraft and official ANC field maintenance personnel are allowed. As always, all pets must be on a leash on ANC property, this is for everyone’s safety.
