Good morning,

The cruise ship program is reviewing the records request. Attached is a non litigation form needed for the request. I wanted to check if you could clarify what records were requested. Is this regarding Ocean Rangers, wastewater, air emissions, or all of those? Did you need all the files or summaries? I attached an example of a monthly summary of Ocean Ranger reports and reported items. We have 5,700 files and emails for Ocean Ranger reported items for 2017 and 2018, it would take a substantial amount of time to compile and review those but the monthly summaries are meant to be a short report on what happened, who was notified, and the conclusion. The program does not have summaries like these for wastewater or air, we have at least one thousand files and emails for each of those. We could provide lists of items. The program would also need to withhold items currently still open, this includes almost all of 2019 and some cases from 2018 and 2017. There would likely be a fee and a substantial amount of time depending on the extent of the request. Please let me know what types of information you are looking for.
Best regards,

Ed

Hi,
I was checking if you received the email I sent in Tuesday in response to the request for cruise ship compliant records sent to Alaska DEC. Please let me know if you have any questions, I would probably be the best contact for cruise ship related documents.
Best regards,

Good morning,

I was checking if you received the emails I sent earlier this month in response to the request for cruise ship compliant records sent to Alaska DEC asking for clarification on the request. Please let me know if you have any questions, I would probably be the best contact for cruise ship related documents.
Best regards,
