Tribal Air Resource Journal,

Volume 13 

The Tribes in EPA Region 5 have compiled this Journal since 2008 to promote their air achievements and share obstacles encountered in their Tribal communities and air resources. In this Journal, each EPA Region 5 Tribe has laid out a one-page summary on those issues.
Each Tribal entry reflects the unique nature of Tribes in Region 5 and the different issues, priorities, size of departments, and funding concerns faced by each. The overall goal of the Journal is to inform and communicate potential partnerships as well as leverage resources for Region 5 Tribes now and into the future.
