                         August 26, 2009
               Introduction to Section 106 of the
               Clean Water Act (CWA): Grants for
               Pollution Control Programs
              Provide introductory information on the Section
              106 program, with particular emphasis on what is
              needed to establish a water quality program that is
              eligible to receive Section 106 funding.


We will be holding a webcast introducing CWA section 106 on August 26. You may
register at EPA’s tribal training Web site.

I’m very excited to announce our first national NPS workshop for tribes. We have
had many regionally-focused workshops for many years now, but this year we have
developed a workshop for tribes w/ more advanced NPS programs. The Web site
for the workshop is now posted and includes workshop information, hotel and travel
information, a description of the field trip and the poster session and a draft agenda.
You can register and pay online for the workshop through this Web site, too. All of
the workshop information may be accessed through the tribal NPS homepage the
appears on your screen.

                             Upcoming Training

               National Nonpoint Source Workshop
               Poster Session
               Morongo Casino Resort and Spa, Cabazon, CA
               September 29 - October 1, 2009

                Posters can include any NPS-related activities. Tribes do not
                have to sign up during registration for the Workshop, we will
                be taking submissions up until the day of the poster session.


We are currently looking for tribes that would like to present a poser at the National
Tribal NPS Workshop in September. If you have a NPS-related success story to
share, a story of obstacles overcome; amazing collaborations to improve water
quality; of measured water quality improvements; or other items of interest to the
Nonpoint Source Community. Please contact us so that we can get all of the
relevant information to you.

As I mentioned before, you may have questions that arise which were unable to
answer on this Webinar. If you’re not sure of your EPA region, take a look at the
map and identify your location, so that you know which EPA Tribal NPS Coordinator
is your contact.
