An Introduction to Tribal Roles under the Clean Water Act

Summary: This beginner’s session provides an introduction to the Clean Water Act and the role tribes play in implementing the Act. We then focus in on “treatment in a similar manner as a state” and tribal adoption of water quality standards. Participants will leave with a firm understanding of the basic policy concepts, examples from the real-world, and resources for more information.

In the last 15 minutes of the webinar, participants were asked to identify what topics they would like to see covered in 1-2 possible follow up webinars, and what format they would like to use for those presentations (i.e. case studies, expert presentation, group discussion, etc.). Those webinars will be scheduled for February or March 2013.
