National Tribal Water Council

National Tribal Water Council


The OERM in partnership with ABC is the facilitator for the National Tribal Water Council (NTWC) through a grant from EPA Office of Water. Monthly Conference Calls are being conducted, two Face to Face Meetings have been held (one in Washington, DC and the other at St. Pete Beach, FL), the website is active http://nationaltribalwatercouncil.org, and there is a Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/NationalTribalWaterCouncil. The NTWC is a technical and scientific body created to assist the Environmental Protection Agency, federally recognized Indian Tribes, including Alaska Native Tribes, and their associated tribal communities and tribal organizations, with research and information for decision-making regarding water issues and water-related concerns that impact Indian and Alaska Native tribal members, as well as other residents of Alaska Native Villages and Indian Country in the United States. It is their intent to advocate for the health and sustainability of clean water, and for the productive use of water for the health and well-being of Indian Country, Indian Communities, Alaska Native Tribes and Alaska Native Villages. There are three Council Members that are from USET Member Tribes.
