EA Telecommunications and Climate Monitoring Improvements


Denali National Park and Preserve is considering actions to establish or upgrade telecommunications systems at several locations and add new weather stations. The Environmental Assessment evaluates two action alternatives. The preferred alternative would keep the microwave wireless repeater sites in wilderness that have been recently tested, while moving repeater equipment out of the historic Herning Cabin to a nearby spot on the Mt. Eielson bench. This alternative would also authorize fixed weather stations at 16,200 feet and 17,200 feet on Mt. McKinley. The other action alternative would move the Herning Cabin equipment to a peak west of the Muldrow Glacier and would only authorize one weather station on Mt. McKinley. Both alternatives would authorize a new weather station to be placed in the Toklat Basin in the 1980 park additions north of the Old Park boundary.
