HEI Kicks Off Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa EPA Exchange Grant Project

tribal-nonpointWith the help of HEI's team, the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa was recently awarded a grant from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for a data exchange network. The tribe is responsible for monitoring point and nonpoint source pollution through the EPA Section 106 and Section 319 programs. They must collect and manage a wide variety of water quality data. The project will improve the way the tribe collects, stores, publishes, and shares data. Improving the database will make daily workflows move quickly and give the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa easier access to vital water quality information and planning resources.
