Tonkawa Tribe Gets $60,000 Award From EPA

By SOP newswire2

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has awarded $60,000 to the Tonkawa Tribe`s Water Pollution Control Program. The tribe will use the funds for its watershed management program by assessing changes in a series of surface-water samples. Data from these samples will illustrate any changes in the condition of the tribe`s water quality, and determine the functions and health of the stream ecosystem and whether the tribe`s water quality is sufficient.
