(Olivia Ebertz/KYUK)For the residents of Tuluksak, breakup means that they will once again be losing their source of running water.After Tuluksak lost its water plant to a fire, the Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation installed a temporary water treatment plant in the school. The plant pipes up water from the Tuluksak River, but that system is too fragile to withstand the ice floes released during breakup.YKHC workers will remove the temporary plant from the river for the time being, and reinstall it when the river ice is gone. In the meantime, the community has several large water tanks that they can fill up to store water.The Alaska Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management has said it will supply the village with bottled drinking water from now until a larger temporary water treatment plant can be barged up and installed. So far, the state has purchased 10 pallets of water for the community. The first two pallets arrived on May 3.This is the first time the state has purchased bottled water for Tuluksak in the three-and-a-half months since the fire occurred. In February, the state paid for the shipment of privately donated bottled water.The funding for the purchased water and shipments is from the state’s disaster relief fund, which was freed up when Gov. Mike Dunleavy signed a disaster declaration for the village in February.Share this story:last_img read more

According to officials, they had recently returned from Syria and were planning attacks on Belgian police.

Security forces are now stationed in the area and overnight searches also took place in the Brussels area.  The rise in the terror threat level was announced by prosecutor Eric Van Der Sypt. He said: “The suspects immediately and for several minutes opened fire with military weaponry and handguns on the special units of the federal police before they were neutralised.”  Belgian authorities are expected to provide more details at a briefing later today.  More From Our Partners A ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org Tags: NULLlast_img read more
