Tribes and Water Quality Standards

Summary: This session will provide an overview of tribal adoption of water quality standards under the Clean Water Act. The session will address the policy nuts and bolts of tribal water quality standards programs and provide an in-depth case study presented by a tribe with their own water quality standards program. The case study will share information about how the tribe developed their standards, lessons learned other tribes can benefit from, and pros and cons of managing a tribal water quality standards program. Participants will leave with a firm understanding of the basic policy concepts, real world examples and lessons learned, and resources for more information.
