    Wampanoag Tribe


The Natural Resources Department of the Wampanoag Tribe has constructed a state and nationally accredited environmental laboratory on the banks of Menemsha Pond. Supported by a variety of grants and partnerships, including many from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the laboratory provides the scientific backbone for the Natural Resources programs of the Tribe.

The Wampanoag Environmental Laboratory is certified by the state of Massachusetts for microbiology and chemistry, allowing the lab to provide drinking water analysis for homes and businesses. The laboratory is nationally accredited for the analysis of lead in dust and soil; lead exposure continues to be a concern in Indian country and throughout the United States. The PM10 NowCast will allow to report current conditions for PM10 in the Air Quality Index (AQI). As part of this implementation, existing AirNow maps and animations displaying PM2.5 AQI information will now also include PM10 AQI information, and these maps will now be labeled as PM, representing the maximum AQI between both pollutants.

The Wampanoag Environmental Laboratory is the center of our environmental programs. The ability to have accurate, immediate data has altered the course of our environmental programs and helped us focus on issues related to the environmental health of the membership, our community, and our Island.
