About the EWMP

In 1995, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) established the Brownfields Program and it has since grown into a nationwide plan of environmental restoration. In 2006, the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes began a Tribal Brownfields Response Program funded by grant monies provided by the EPA.

The Shoshone-Bannock Tribes Environmental Waste Management Program Tribal Brownfields Response Program provides identification, assessment, cleanup, oversight and monitoring of sites within the Reservation that contain contaminants, pollutants or other materials with the potential to adversely affect human health and the environment.

The program appreciates feedback from the community! The environmental benefit with community involvement is greater public awareness in areas of concern and opportunities for the public to provide meaningful input.

Changes to the original plan to remedy or clean up the contaminants at the FMC-OU superfund site is now available for the public to comment on!

EPA is hosting two informal community open houses where you can come and get information about the current efforts to address contaminated soils and groundwater at the Simplot Don Plant and the former FMC Corporation property west of Pocatello. A number of posters will be on display to help you better understand the Superfund activities at these sites.

Representatives from EPA’s Superfund Program will be available to discuss the past, current and future activities at these two sites and to take any questions you might have regarding the status of the Superfund work. Please share this announcement with your organization members, neighbors, community members and others.
