Description

U.S. EPA Region 9 Tribal Clean Water Act Programs Workshop

~ Tribal Spirits Sharing Knowledge ~ A Warrior’s Heart Hunting for Solutions ~ Joining as One to Protect Mother Earth ~


U.S. EPA Region 9 Water Division Tribal Water Section with Colorado River Indian Tribes will hold a 5-day training for tribal government Clean Water Act program staff from May 15 to May 19, 2017 at the BlueWater Resort in Parker, Arizona. The training will provide and share technical information and strategies to support monitoring, assessment, protection, and prevention of polluted runoff on tribal lands and in watersheds. Specifically, the major Clean Water Act (CWA) programs available to federally recognized Indian Tribes will be covered at this workshop:

  • The CWA Section 106 Grant Program – Water Pollution Control Program assists tribes in administering programs for the prevention, reduction, and elimination of water pollution.
  • The CWA Section 319 Grant Program – Nonpoint Source Pollution Control (NPS) Program assists tribes in implementing activities to address polluted runoff per their EPA approved NPS Assessment Report and Management Program Plan.
  • The Water Quality Standards (WQS) program authorization process supports tribal water quality goals for a specific water body and serves as a regulatory basis for establishment of water quality-based pollution controls.
