Coastal erosion potential threat to community sewage lagoon.
Observation by Joseph Pleasant:
Whenever we've had a storm event occur in the past, present on the coast of Kuskokwim Bay, the shoreline has been eroding. The coastal erosion is threatening the sewage lagoon located inland just above the bluff that supports our village.
