PETERSBURG, AK - A contractor for the U.S. Air Force could be removing contaminated soil and debris from a former military communications site in Duncan Canal near Petersburg next summer or fall. The site was a manned communications station, part of a Cold War-era early warning system called White Alice used to relay radio communications from Clear Air Force base in Alaska to Colorado Springs fifty years ago. It's on Kupreanof Island, just south of Ohmer Slough on Duncan Canal, about eight miles west of Petersburg.
