News roundup: April 21, 2016

Recent news related to Pebble focuses on the deposition of ecologist Phil North, a former EPA employee. After he retired from a long career with EPA, North and his family left Alaska to travel the world. He came back to the U.S. from Bali to be interviewed by Pebble Limited Partnership (PLP) attorneys, and then later by a U.S. congressional committee, both related to his role in developing the EPA’s Bristol Bay Watershed Assessment. Alaskapublic.org, KDLG radio in Dillingham and Alaska Dispatch News all covered the story.
