Clean Water Act Section 106 Guidance for Tribes in the Pacific Northwest

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued the new Final Guidance of Awards of Grants to Indian Tribes under Section 106 of the Clean Water Act on October 20, 2006.

Because not every Tribe will be able to comply with all elements of the Guidance immediately, the Region 10 office will be focusing on the three components of the Tribal Assessment Report (TAR) in the following priority order:


Future Section 106 funding decisions will be based partly on a Tribe’s compliance with the Guidance and the target dates and requirements described on this page. This Guidance will be reflected in each new Section 106 grant agreement as a programmatic condition.

Step 1: Submit Preliminary Water Quality Monitoring Program Self-Assessment
Step 2: Request Waivers for Particular Monitoring Requirements
Step 3: Develop a Monitoring Strategy
Step 4: Enter STORET Data
Step 5: Complete Water Quality Assessment Reports If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Janette Rau at rau.janette@epa.gov or (206) 553-0483.
