JUNEAU- The state is asking the parties connected to a bulldozer that submerged in a remote lake in south-central Alaska in May for help in cleaning up the site.
The Department of Environmental Conservation's Shannon DeWandel says so-called "potential responsible party" letters were sent to the general contractor, permit holder and estate of the bulldozer driver killed in the incident.
The accident happened as crews were moving equipment to help establish a camp for studies associated with the proposed Susitna-Watana dam.
DeWandel says the state is still trying to determine who would ultimately be responsible for the cleanup but is asking that one of or all the parties address the situation.
If they don't, she says the Department of Law will be asked to determine the responsible party.
