The Georgetown Tribal Council houses a baseline water quality database for the middle Kuskokwim region. More information can be found on our website. If you are interested in including your water quality data into the database, please contact the tribe. In addition, the Native Village of Georgetown has experience with mining and industry: an abandoned mercury mine and a proposed hard rock gold mine are both located within twenty miles of Georgetown. We can share some of our experiences in working with agencies on both clean-up efforts of past projects as well as the permitting process for future projects. The tribe also has some level of experience in dealing with the protection of subsistence resources, specifically the decline of Chinook salmon in our region. If you are dealing with any of these issues or have questions about our experiences, we’d be happy to talk with you about the lessons we’ve learned along the way.
