Tribal Superfund Working Group (TSFWG)
The Tribal Superfund Working Group (TSFWG) is a network of tribal professional, other experts, and government employees that are engaged in work with Superfund sites, Federal Facilities and other sites of special concern. These individuals work on protecting tribal lands, water, and community health and have become part of this group either by self-subscribing, because of their past work on Superfund issues, or because Superfund is their primary area of work or interest. To join the TSFWG listserv please email Todd Barnell ( or Julie Jurkowski (

Superfund Onsite Mentor Program
ITEP currently has funding for Onsite Mentoring Opportunities for tribal professionals involved in Superfund-related activities. Details on applying for this program can be found here.

Site Visits
The Tribal Superfund Working Group has a site visit each year. Details and documents about these site visits are found here.

Case Studies
These case studies have been developed to give basic information on Superfund sites across the country that or either on or near tribal lands. This collection of case studies is in no way a comprehensive list of Superfund sites on Tribal lands. This section will continue to be expanded.

Resources found in this section include helpful websites, a collection of presentations on Superfund issues, sites and funding, and example documents including Memorandum of Understandings, NPL Letters of Support, and Community Involvement Plans from Tribes that have already had to deal with Superfund related issues.
