About the Program

The Tribal Response Program (also known as the Brownfields Program) is an enforcement program whose primary purpose is to provide the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe with enforcement authorities to ensure that hazardous sites (including brownfield sites) are assessed and cleaned-up in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations (see CERCLA Section 128(a)(2)(B)).

Current funding for the program is provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). At the discretion of the EPA, the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe can also spend a limited amount of funding to conduct assessments and cleanups at brownfield sites.

If you would like to report a site that you believe or know to be contaminated, please fill out Form 105 and the Tribal Response Coordinator will launch an investigation.
