Executive Order 13175: Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal Governments This action has tribal implications. However, it will neither impose substantial direct compliance costs on federally recognized tribal governments, nor preempt tribal law. With limited exceptions, the EPA directly implements the NPDES program in Indian country as no tribe has yet obtained EPA authorization to administer the NPDES program. As a result, almost all eligible facilities with stormwater discharges associated with industrial activities in Indian country fall under the EPA MSGP or may be covered under an individual NPDES permit issued by the EPA. The EPA consulted with tribal officials under the EPA Policy on Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribes early in the process of developing this permit to have meaningful and timely input into its development to gain an understanding of and, where necessary, to address the tribal implications of the proposed permit. A summary of that consultation and coordination follows. The EPA initiated a tribal consultation and coordination process for this action by sending a ‘‘Notice of Consultation and Coordination’’ letter on June 26, 2019, to all 573 federally recognized tribes. The letter invited tribal leaders and designated consultation representative(s) to participate in the tribal consultation and coordination process. The EPA held an informational webinar for tribal representatives on August 1, 2019. A total of 19 tribal representatives participated in the webinar. The EPA also presented an overview of the current 2015 MSGP and potential changes for the reissuance of the MSGP to the National Tribal Water Council during a July 10, 2019 call with EPA staff. The EPA solicited comment from federally recognized tribes early in the reissuance process. Tribes and tribal organizations submitted one letter and three emails to the EPA. Records of the tribal informational webinar and a consultation summary summarizing the written comments submitted by tribes are included in the docket for this proposed action (Docket ID No EPA– HQ–OW–2019–0372). The EPA incorporated the feedback it received from tribal representatives in the proposal. The Agency specifically solicits additional comment on this proposed permit from tribal officials. The EPA also notes that as part of the finalization of this proposed permit, the VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:10 Feb 28, 2020 Jkt 250001 Agency will complete the Clean Water Act section 401 certification procedures with all authorized tribes where this permit will apply.
