Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Tribal Meeting on CO River Perchlorate Contamination
Tribal Meeting on CO River Perchlorate Contamination

Perchlorate Pals: I have been assisting the Torres Martinez Tribe with
the agenda (below and attached) for a meeting they are hosting on
perchlorate contamination of the Lower CO River, to be held in Parker,
AZ on Sept. 9-10.  If you are interested, even with the late notice,
please see <www.tribalwater.net> for a registration form.

It promises to be a great meeting -- it will offer Tribes and
communities the chance to lead a discussion on perchlorate and to get
answers to some of the questions they have been asking for a long time.

Please call with any questions and I look forward to seeing you there!
