Cape Krusenstern National Monument (CAKR) was established in 1978 by presidential proclamation and then designated in 1980 in the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA). Section 201(3) of ANILCA specifies that:
Cape Krusenstern National Monument is one of over 389 National Park Service units that, working with other partners, helps safeguard this nation's natural and cultural heritage.
Full Access ROW Application: Noatak Fuel Transportation
A significant amount of fuel used in remote villages arrives by aircraft, making it very expensive. As part of a plan to reduce costs by transporting heating fuel overland between the Red Dog Port Site and the Native Village of Noatak, the village is requesting permission to haul 50,000 gallons of diesel heating fuel annually across ~8 miles of NPS lands in Cape Krusenstern National Monument (CAKR). The fuel would be transported in winter months using a wheeled Cat Forwarder with a 3,300 gallon custom tank. An annual total of 17 round trips would be required.
