Pacific Southwest, Region 9
Serving: Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Pacific Islands, Tribal Nations
EPA has approved California's water quality improvement plan for restoring salmon fisheries and water quality in the Klamath River, which flows 255 miles southwest from Oregon through northern California, and empties into the Pacific Ocean. Many Native American tribes live along the Klamath and rely on the river for subsistence, transportation and ceremony, as they have for thousands of years.
The Gila River Indian Community's Tribal Implementation Plan is a blueprint of how to achieve improved air quality which will serve as a model for other tribes.
