Description: AMT Application Evaluation:
In overview, the BWTF effluent discharge is tasked by regulation to stay within proscribed limits
of pollutant concentrations and to do no significant harm to the environment of Port Valdez.
According to annual results from Alyeska’s Environmental Monitoring Program (AEMP), they
have essentially succeeded in their task. Oil concentrations are reported at very low levels and
with the exception of the localized changes to infauna near the diffuser, no significant harm to
the environment has been documented.
