State can’t afford Susitna Dam

  • Updated

Community Perspective

In a News-Miner Community Perspective on Dec. 3, Anne Seneca argued in favor of the proposed Susitna-Watana Dam by advocating for an “all-of-the-above” energy strategy. With low oil prices projected to continue, the state of Alaska is not able to fund every energy project imaginable. Rather, we need to spend our money wisely by targeting financially sensible projects, protecting the resources we most value and pursuing enterprises that have the greatest chance of being successful. The proposed Susitna-Watana Dam fails to meet every one of those criteria.
