Tribe Standards in Effect for CWA Purposes
The tribe’s initial water quality standards were approved on March 18, 1996. The Tribes' water quality standards are applicable to "waters of the Tribe". In some limited instances, the definition adopted by the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes for "waters of the Tribe" as part of its water quality standards may result in water quality standards that are more comprehensive than required under section 303(c) of the Clean Water Act and the implementing federal regulations. EPA has included the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes' water quality standards in their entirety here for context and as supplementary information for the reader.
