The KDEP duties are both administrative and technical in nature. It is responsible for managing all of the environmental programs and identifying environmental problems of the Tribe. The KDEP is also responsible for developing draft plans, codes, policies and regulation for the control, mitigation, and prevention of these problems. The KDEP is almost 100% funded by grants from federal agencies, primarily the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Because most of our funding comes from EPA, the majority of projects we undertake benefit the community as a whole. Community -wide projects include surface water monitoring, providing roll-offs for annual community cleanup events, and educational opportunities for children. We also offer radon testing to individuals and provide information on a variety of environmental topics including testing and disinfecting residential wells, proper handling and disposal of pesticides, water conservation, and indoor air quality. Due to funding constraints, there are some services our department is unable to provide. Please contact our office for information on environmental topics or with environmental complaint or concerns.
