Bethel chooses to allow cyanide transport through the city's port

The Bethel City Council recently voted against banning cyanide from the city port. For the past two months the Council considered banning any amount of cyanide over 50 gallons from entering the city or it’s port on the Kuskokwim River. The move was in response to the proposed Donlin Creek Gold Mine 200 miles upriver.
