Tribal Hazardous Substances Website

Tribal Hazardous Substances Website

Hazardous substances are present in each of our communities. People can be exposed to hazardous substances through many different avenues: in their homes, drinking from a contaminated water source, entering abandoned buildings, incinerators emissions, industrial releases, and direct contact with landfills or other contaminated sites.

This website has been developed for Tribes to:

  • expand awareness of unknown possible hazardous substances that may be found throughout your community,
  • locate resources to learn more about those substances,
  • and prioritize action by evaluating the effects on, and posing risks to, your community, traditional practices, and subsistence resources.
