Campaign to Safeguard America's Waters and Friends of the Earth requested an administrative review of the permit on May 19.
A request for an administrative review of a permit decision must meet certain legal standards. Attorneys with the Office of Administrative Hearings determined that the request fell short of those standards. It was denied for that reason.
"The permit faithfully implements the intent and letter of recent legislation," said DEC Water Division Director Lynn Kent. "It provides the high degree of protection of Alaska's waters called for by the law."
