Tuluksak Water Treatment Plant and Washeteria Burn Down

This afternoon, YKHC was notified the water treatment plant and washeteria in Tuluksak was on fire. While early assessment suggests the building may be a total loss, weather permitting, YKHC’s Office of Environmental Health & Engineering will send staff to the village on Monday to determine if the existing water well is salvageable. YKHC will be partnering with Tuluksak Native Community to determine how the Tribe can help to keep the school’s water system operable and determine what water options are available to the community.

This issue continues to develop and YKHC will offer more information as we have it.
