Project Title & Description
Environmental Small Justice Grants Programs
This grant address fecal contamination issues at a sacred Medicine Spring located on the Crow Reservation. The spring is consumed untreated (as it is considered a sacred spring), and presents a substantial health risk to the community. Because the spring is not covered under the EPA regulations, it is not required to meet a drinking or water quality standard. This project will gather environmental water quality data, community data, diseminate information to community regarding water quality, develop strategies to address environmental water contamination. Outcomes include increased awareness of water contamination.
