On Tuesday, the City of Bethel held a public meeting to address concerns regarding recent water tests.

Speaking at the meeting were:

  • Bill Howell, City of Bethel Acting City Manager
  • Cindy Christian, Drinking Water Program Manager, Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation 
  • Jonathan Bressler, Public Health Specialist, Alaska Department of Health and Social Services
