The United States Environmental Protection Agency awarded the Tribe's Department of Natural Resources with a CERCLA Section 128(a) Grant in 2007. The purpose of the grant was to establish a Tribal Response Program to identify, assess, clean up, and monitor contaminants on Tribal Lands.
    CTCLUSI and the Department of Natural and CUltural Resources has developed and begun implementation of the Tribal Estuary Response Plan, which establishes the policies and procedures under which the Tribe will operate in the event of a hazardous materials incident, oil spill, or other release impacting or potentially impacting our estuaries. This Plan is designed to prepare the Tribe for incident response and to minimize the exposure to or damage from materials that could adversely impact human health and safety or tribal resources.
