For each document listed under "Tribe Standards in Effect for CWA Purposes", EPA has made a reasonable effort to identify parts of the standards that are disapproved or are otherwise not in effect for CWA purposes. Additionally, please note the documents may also contain provisions that EPA does not have the authority and duty to act on under the Clean Water Act because the provisions are not water quality standards.
