The Iroquois Environmental Newsletter (IEN) is a bi-annual newsletter published in the Spring and Fall of each year. Funded by the U.S.E.P.A., under the General Assistance Program (GAP), the mission of the IEN is to inform and educate Iroquois Nation People and to network with other members of the Iroquois Nation regarding environmental issues in our territories. Approximately 3,000 copies are distributed to community members and interested persons around the world. Articles from the IEN, specific to Akwesasne, will be posted to this page on a regular basis.
Staff Development under GAP means providing environmental staff members with opportunities to receive training in their fields through short seminars, workshops, conferences, and self-study programs. All staff members are encouraged to attend training which will enhance their capabilities to the betterment of themselves, the Environment Division and the community.
Staff development under the CORE program is similar to that under the GAP program, but focuses on hazardous materials response, assessment, sampling and analytical training, planning and enforcement. It also provides administrative and management training, since a large part of "Superfund" has to do with accurately and carefully tracking expenses and documentation of hazardous waste sites and their Primary Responsible Parties (PRP).
Inventory, supply and maintaining equipment in operating condition is necessary for allowing staff members to safely and effectively carry out their tasks under the CORE program. Because of the potential hazards, equipment which will protect staff members must be maintained kept in prime condition. An inventory of sampling tools and equipment must be ready for use on a moments notice and a supply of spill containment materials must be kept in stock in the event a spill does occur.
