Kletsel Dehe Wintun Nation Partners with Local University on Water Quality Initiatives

Kletsel Dehe Wintun Nation's environmental department established an extensive partnership with California State University (CSU) Chico that has included water quality monitoring, vegetation sampling, producing a report on water treatment and storage, and the future design and cost-benefit analysis of a rain water purification system. This university collaboration has allowed the tribe to keep current with relevant academic research, better administer their Clean Water Act (CWA) grant, and enhance the department’s capacity to identify, establish, and manage a student internship program. The tribe was also able to use the intern’s FTE as an in-kind matching contribution under EPA grants.
