This paper presents aspects of planning, permitting, design, and construction of two unique small diameter ocean outfalls for the Native Alaskan Villages of Saint George and Saint Paul, Pribilof Islands, Alaska. These outfall pipelines were designed to dispose of primary treated domestic wastewater in compliance with State and Federal regulations, to withstand breaking wave heights in excess of 6 meters (20 ft), and to be constructable in a harsh sub-arctic coastal environment.
