Anchorage Water and Wastewater Utility (AWWU) prepared a biological evaluation (BE) in 2011, for use in reauthorization of its federal wastewater discharge permit.  The work focused on analysis of contaminant pathways associated with the Cook Inlet Beluga Whale (CIBW) population in Cook Inlet, Alaska.  CIBW was identified as an endangered distinct population segment in 2008, in accordance with the federal (U.S.) Endangered Species Act (ESA).
This final draft document summarized the potential pathways and potential ecological risks to the CIBW, and is available through a link from the Utility's home page at:  http://www.awwu.biz/website/default.htm, or directly at: http://www.awwu.biz/eInfo/Files/Cook%20Inlet%20Water%20Quality/2011%20-%20Evaluation%20Effects%20of%20Discharge%20Permit%20-%20ReAuthorization%20Endangered%20Species.pdf
The U.S. EPA is currently reviewing the final draft BE for prospective use in ESA consultation with the National Marine Fisheries Service.  We would be happy to answer questions you may have concerning this report.
