Hazardous situation for 35 homes on the rez
Posted in the Eagle Butte Forum
#1 Jun 15, 2011
I am a part of 15 homes within District 6 and 20 others throughout the rez with septic tanks that were put in by IHS 30+ years ago that have now broke do to saturation issues. Now we have black sludge/shit/bacteria continuously falling into our basements. We have repeatedly spoken with The Tribe, EPA and other entities within CRST and all point the finger at each other. IHS states they are responsible but have no funding to fix the situation, we were put on a "list". We have children and elderly living in these homes who are being greatly affected by these hazardous conditions. If we were anywhere else other than the rez this would absolutely not be acceptable. We need help, we need more voices to get some attention. The lack of housing here has contributed to us being forced to stay in our homes esp. being low income. We can't even get a port a potty through our representatives. This is total bullshit and I am disgusted by the Tribe never giving a shit about their people. What else can we do???
