Document Description
NOTE: Review Per Lead The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is considering awarding an $873,000 grant to the Smith River Rancheria, Smith River California, to fund construction of the wastewater collection system that will collect wastewater from several locations on or near South Indian Road and serve the Howonquet Community Hall, the UIHS Health Clinic, residential units, and a new senior housing project currently under construction. The Project is expected to benefit socioeconomic conditions and environmental justice for both the Tribe and the Smith River community by stimulating the development of needed housing for Tribal members, and by removing pollutant sources. Further, the extended collection system will deliver the design flows for the existing wastewater treatment plant and provide the organic loading needed for a healthy treatment facility. Construction would occur within the boundaries of the Smith River Rancheria.
