EPA Awards $100,000 to the Pueblo of Acoma for Solid Waste Management
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently awarded $100,000 to the Pueblo of Acoma for solid waste management. The tribe will use the funds to develop a cleanup plan to address illegal dumping. The tribe will also hold community meetings, implement cleanup of open or illegal dump sites, and develop and distribute dump site closure and no dumping flyers to the community to deter future illegal dumping.
