The Native Village of Napaimute is pleased to announce the implementation of a new environmental program for our tribe – the EPA Brownsfield Program. The purpose of this program is to allow tribes to develop the capacity to survey and inventory potential Brownfields (contaminated or suspected to be contaminated) sites such as old mines, fuel tank farms, abandoned military installations, etc. With this capacity tribes will then be able to develop and implement plans for tribal response such as clean up and remediation. This work will also provide the means for Public participation and the establishment of a Public Record. With many old mine and other abandoned sites in the Middle Kuskokwim this can be a meaningful, interesting and exciting job.
