Education and Outreach
of Water Resources
Mission - The mission of the Water Resources Program is to protect and maintain the water quality and natural environment that include springs, streams, wetlands, the Colorado River, and ground water aquifers of Hualapai lands through a proactive approach in educating the public and sharing our concerns.
The Hualapai Department of Natural Resources regularly participates in community awareness, education and outreach regarding water quality, pollution prevention, range management, air quality, climate change, and also supports a number of youth enrichment activities
The Hualapai Department of Natural Resources Water Resources Program is devoted to being an active participant in public outreach and education contributions. Outreach activities we engage in vary from public forums on questions and concerns from the community on environmental issues, to volunteering for an assortment of roles in the Tribe’s community functions, to formal presentations with tribal government and other agencies as directed by the Water Resource Manager.
We offer presentations to schools and neighborhood associations on the topic of the Hualapai Tribe's Environment. Water Resources staff also present information on practical applications of response and active management practices.
Our ability to respond to urgent situations within the local environment allows us to visit sites of concern and educate the public on natural processes and human activities that impact springs, streams, and the local groundwater table.
We have produced our own brochures on many topics, such as Non-Point Source Pollution, Storm Water Run-off Pollution, Source Water Assessment and Protection, and Springs/Seeps Biomonitoring Protocols. We distribute these brochures as often as possible to citizens, civic groups or organizations.
We participate in many events such as the Earth Day, Youth Camp, Sobriety Festival, Career Day and Junior Rodeo.
