Published Sept. 23, 2020

We are aware of the Environmental Investigation Agency’s recorded conversations. We are committed to a fair and transparent process, which includes maintaining high standards of integrity through to the record of decision.

Upon review of the transcripts, we have identified inaccuracies and falsehoods relating to the permit process and the relationship between our regulatory leadership and the applicant’s executives.

“We have the highest level of trust and confidence in the integrity of our regulatory team,” said Col. Damon Delarosa, Alaska District commander. “As we continue to work through this process, we will continue to uphold and follow applicable laws and regulations.”
