The EPA is holding an informational webinar for tribal leaders and staff on March 15, 2018, from 2:00 – 4:00 pm Eastern time, concerning the draft informational document Modernizing Public Hearings for Water Quality Standard (WQS) Decisions Consistent with 40 C.F.R. § 25.5, which was shared with tribes in mid-February.

The informational webinar is part of a 60-day tribal consultation and coordination process which ends on April 20, 2018. The EPA is seeking feedback from tribal representatives to enhance the utility of the draft informational document.

The webinar will consist of two parts — first, EPA staff will provide information about the proposed draft document, and in the second part, tribal representatives will have an opportunity to ask questions and provide comment. Specifically, the EPA is seeking tribal input on additional technology options and/or best practices for modernizing the public hearing process, potential implications from modernizing the public hearing process, other factors for the Agency to consider, and/or any areas of the document that need clarity.

Tribes may access related consultation information on EPA’s Tribal Consultation Opportunities Tracking System (TCOTS), located at https://tcots.epa.gov. This includes: a PDF of the draft informational document, a copy of the consultation letter, and a copy of the full consultation and coordination plan.

To submit written comments, please contact Menchu Martinez, at martinez.menchu-c@epa.gov or 1200 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Mail code: 4305T, Washington, DC 20460 by April 20, 2018.
