The Tribal Environmental Code and Guidance documents will provide a regulatory framework to approve cleanup plans and verify cleanups are completed. Our Environmental Code and Guidances are comparable to the Idaho Risk Evaluation Manual, which provides risk based corrective action procedures and standards to evaluate soil and groundwater contamination. The correlation between the Idaho and Tribal Codes should give Reservation communities confidence that the same standards are being applied both on and off Reservation and that the residents will be treated fairly.
In addition, the Tribe’s staff is managed by Mr. Kevin Brackney, who is an environmental professional with 19 years of professional experience, an Idaho Registered Professional Geologist, and a Certified Ground Water Professional by the National Ground Water Association. Mr. Brackney is currently mentoring three junior staff and recommending appropriate educational opportunities to develop the staff’s ability to professionally function in the field.
