Environmental health in the United States has improved hand in hand with the increased availability of electric power. Although a direct causal relationship may be lacking, there is no doubt that power has contributed vastly to the factors consideredimportant to better environmental health. Large segments of the Alaska community, however, are power starved. The inhabitantsof remote Alaska Native villages year after year have had few of the environmental health benefits and conveniences that power brings. The present status of power and specific ways in which electric power could benefit environmental health and might be made available in those villages where it is lacking are outlinedhere.
