American Indian tribes in Western Washington will spend $2 million in federal grant money for various projects designed to restore water quality to health in the Puget Sound region. The Environmental Protection Agency awarded grants, each averaging about $100,000, to 19 Western Washington tribes, said Tony Brown, a spokesman for the agency. The Tulalip Tribes and the Stillaguamish Tribe were among the tribes that received grants.
