Environmental Services

The Modoc Nation is committed to using sound scientific methods and a stewardship based approach to aid policymakers in making informed decisions to effectively use the Nation’s natural resources and protect the health of the Modoc Nation members, both individually and collectively.

The primary mission of the Modoc Nation Office of Environmental Quality (OEQ) is to establish its presence within the environmental community, accurately assess the Nation’s environment, and establish the necessary legal infrastructure to regulate the Nation’s environment and protect the Nation’s sovereignty.  By doing so, the Nation will be able to preserve and protect the land and health of its People.

Red Cedar Recycling opened in 1996 and is owned and operated by the Modoc Nation. The mission of Red Cedar Recycling is to promote and provide recycling opportunities within the community, as well as educate the public on the importance of recycling and its impact on our environment.

Introduction to Indoor Air Quality

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. Understanding and controlling common pollutants indoors can help reduce your risk of indoor health concerns.

Health effects from indoor air pollutants may be experienced soon after exposure or, possibly, years later.
