The 'Alaska Village Demonstration Projects' were authorized by Section 113, P.O. 92-500 (86 STAT 816), for the purpose of demonstrating methods to improve sanitary conditions in native villages of Alaska. Central community facilities have been constructed in the native villages of Emmonak and Wainwright to provide a safe water supply; toilets, bathing and laundry facilities; and sewage and waste disposal. The idea of coming to a community center to secure water, to do the laundry, and to bathe has proven acceptable to the people of Wainwright and Emmonak. However, Alaskan native villages generally can not pay, through service charges, the full cost of routine operation and maintenance of water-related utilities, especially where complex treatment is required to meet waste treatment standards. The physical-chemical wastewater treatment provided required considerable modification and detailed operator attention to provide consistent secondary treatment.
