Cleaning Up, Protecting and Preserving Tribal Lands
Cleaning up contaminated land, pursuant to EPA's statutory authorities, protects human health and the environment, while enabling tribal communities and other stakeholders to pursue future beneficial use or reuse of resources for economic, environmental, and traditional purposes. A goal of the EPA's Office of Land and Emergency Management (OLEM) is to restore land by promoting and implementing protective waste management practices and by assessing and cleaning up contaminated sites.
