Water and On-Site Sanitary Services
The Planning Department has applications for Indian Health Services (IHS) Individual Water and On-Site Sanitary Services. The service provided by IHS is free to Tribal Members. Download, print and complete this Water and Wastewater Application, which contains information on what you’ll need to provide to become an applicant. Tribal members should complete the application as best as they can. Upon receipt of the application, the Planning Department will verify the information and work to obtain the Chairman’s signature. As such, please mail this application to Nooksack Indian Tribe, ATTN: Planning Department, PO Box 157, Deming, WA 98244. The service provided by IHS can take several months to complete, so please be patient. When such projects commence, the Planning Department is happy to help act as a liaison between the homeowner and IHS. After completion of the project, it becomes the responsibility of the homeowner to operate and maintain the system(s). For more information, contact Ross Cline, Planning Department,, or (360) 592-0162.
