The Environmental Department takes a comprehensive approach to addressing environmental needs and concerns on the reservation. Through the Clean Water Act Section 106 and 319 grant programs, the department monitors water quality, creates educational materials to prevent pollution of water, and assesses/addresses any nonpoint source pollution issues. A large emphasis is placed on community outreach with a focus on youth. The development and presentation of workshops, meetings, and classroom activities help produce awareness of the environment and reduces negative impacts.
