Abstract:

Water resources planning in Indian Country has produced varied results. On the Fort Peck Indian Reservation, the Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes are using an integrated approach to managing water resources. By using chemical, physical and biological information, Tribal decision makers get a detailed picture of the health of their surface waters. In addition, the biological data, which indicates stream health in terms of living organisms, presents tribal decision makers with information that is culturally relevant.
