The Alaska Village Demonstration Projects (AVDP) were authorized by Section 113, P.L. 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 solid waste disposal. Although there has not been enough time to allow full operation and evaluation of these facilities, it is apparent that the technology is available to provide these basic utility services to the demonstration villages. A major issue still to be addressed is the lack of clear responsibility for the operation and maintenance of the facilities after the Environmental Protection Agency demonstration program is completed. Adequate local resources to operate the installations are lacking. Continued experience with the AVDP is needed to complete evaluation and develop recommendations in relation to the establishment of a statewide program.
