National Tribal Water Council

National Tribal Water Council

The National Tribal Water Council is a technical and scientific body created to assist the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), federally recognized Indian Tribes, Alaska Native Tribes, and associated tribal communities and tribal organizations, with research and information exchange regarding water issues and water-related concerns that impact Indian and Alaska Native tribal members, residents of Alaska Native Villages and Indian Country in the United States.

What We Do:

·         Collaboration - Holds two in-person meetings annually, conducts monthly conference calls, and works to address priority water issues impacting Indian Country.

·         Information Exchange and Outreach – Works to enhance involvement in regional, national, and work group meetings, conducts informational webinars, and develops training or informational sessions for the Tribal Lands and Environment Forum.

·         Policy Response Kits – Develops a response to water related policies and initiatives that impact Tribes, the Council, in collaboration with subject matter and legal experts. Policy response kit includes a comment letter, template comment letter, and fact sheet.
