This session provide an overview of the power of 401 water quality certification in the hands of tribes through the Clean Water Act. The session will address the policy nuts and bolts of trial 401 water quality certification efforts and present an in-depth case study presented by a tribe with their program in place. The case study will share information about how the tribe implements 401 water quality certification, lessons learned other tribes can benefit from, and pros and cons of using 401 water quality certification as a tool to protect tribal waters.
