Alaska continues bid for ownership of riverbeds; latest case involves wild & scenic river corridor

FAIRBANKS — The state of Alaska, in its latest lawsuit challenging ownership of riverbeds in the state, sued the federal government earlier this month over two forks of the Fortymile River in the eastern Interior. 

The state previously won recognition that it owns the bank underneath the Fortymile River’s Mosquito Fork in 2015. The state now wants the federal government to recognize the land beneath the river’s Middle and North forks as state land.
