Tribal Government’s Responsibility to Receive Facility Information
A Tribe’s only responsibility under the options EPA is considering would be to receive any TRI reports submitted by facilities located within its Indian country. EPA would ask affected Tribes (those with facilities located in their Indian country) to identify a point of contact to whom facilities could provide the annual report of TRI releases. If no TRI contact was designated, the Tribal Environmental Department would serve as the point of contact for report submissions.
