EPA Region 10 sent the following letters as part of an effort to coordinate and consult with potentially impacted Tribes in EPA Region 10 on a decision regarding water quality in the state of Oregon. Specifically, EPA strives to enhance dialogue with elected tribal leaders and duly appointed tribal representatives by providing opportunities for meaningful involvement, so that EPA can fully consider the rights, concerns and interests of the Tribe before proposing and finalizing any federal water quality standards regulations applicable to Oregon.

Specific Coordination Actions
EPA met with the Confederated Tribe of the Umatilla Indian Reservation on September 23, 2003. A pre-publication draft of EPA's October 10, 2003, proposal was provided to tribes on October, 3, 2003. Conferences calls were held with tribal staff on October 29, 2003 and January 20, 2004. An informal meeting was held with Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission staff on February 12, 2004.
