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!

The environmental benefit with community involvement is greater public awareness in areas of concern and opportunities for the public to provide meaningful input. Historical Facts on District Lodges Information based on a letter from Fort Hall Superintendent September 15, 1934.

"District lodges were created because Tribal members did not have a meeting place, except for outdoors or a small tent. Therefore, SB's of the Gibson district organized and a group of them went to Island Park Country and cut sufficient timber for their community meeting building. Then the Shoshone and Bannock Tribes of the Fort Hall District made up their minds they would get timber and cut logs for their community building. However, after hauling the logs both groups were faced with the difficulty of erecting the buildings without finances and not enough material.

They attempted to erect the buildings, but found themselves confronted with a greater project than they had contemplated. They were unsuccessful and left their efforts with the logs partly in place awaiting assistance for the construction and purchasing of roof materials. Meanwhile, the Ross Fork district cut logs and hauled them to their site. They found no obstacle to great for them and they erected a structure that would become their community center and they were the first to have a suitable meeting place.

Because of these efforts, the Superintendent provided assistance for the roof and cupola to the districts with the Civil Works Act funds. A carpenter was placed in charge of the work with the Indians from Gibson and Fort Hall districts to assist in the final construction of the lodges. It was now possible to hold district community meetings and gatherings at any time for any sized crowd that wished to gather during the fall and winter months!"
