Project Title & Description
Kasaan FY2015 Tribal Response Program
This project funds the Organized Village of Kasaan (OVK) response program that includes timely survey and inventory of brownfield sites; oversight and enforcement authorities to ensure that response actions protect human health and the environment; resources to provide meaningful public involvement; and mechanisms for approval of cleanup plans and verification of complete responses. Their work also includes hosting the annual Prince of Wales Mining Symposium and this year's Transboundary Mining Workshop. Both events are critical to the Tribes oversite and capacity to remain involved.
