Tribal Environmental Response Program Annual Report 2013
State & Tribal Success Story - January 2009
The Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin, Environmental Health and Safety Division, is developing a Tribal Environmental Response Program (TERP) with a Brownfield 128(a) grant from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The TERP is intended to address non-emergency releases of hazardous and regulated materials to the environment. The TERP will maintain an inventory of these sites, keep a public record of planned response actions to these sites, conduct oversight and when able enforcement of response actions, and verify that response actions are appropriate and compete. Additionally, the TERP is providing meaningful opportunities for the public to participate in the selection of sites to be addressed, to assist in identifying previously unknown concerns, and assist in identifying appropriate reuses of properties that have been cleaned up.
One of the goals of the Tribal Environmental Response Program, is to provide a public record of sites where activities have been overseen by the TERP. This record includes the general site location, date of TERP notification to, type of TERP response, material released, environmental impact, and TERP actions. This record also provides a listing of “historical sites” that are frequently brought to the attention of the TERP. To view this “Public Record”, please follow the TERP Public Record link.
