Project Title & Description
Brownfields Tribal Response Program
This is the first year this tribe has received Brownfields Response funding and will use this funding to establish their Tribal Brownfields Response Program. This year the Tribe plans to hire two Brownfields Program staff, purchase equipment, attend conferences and trainings, and engage the community through the creation of a public involvement plan, public record, as well as hosting a local petroleum operator training. Additionally, the Tribe will begin the process of developing a community-wide inventory of brownfields sites and will start laying out their strategy for enhancing their program in such areas as emergency response, the development of ordinances, etc. in order to follow the four key elements of the EPA program.
