What We Do

The NBITWC has been organized to protect water resources of the Norton Bay Watershed located on the Seward Peninsula, Alaska for the benefit of NBITWC’s members and the public. NBITWC conducts legal and scientific research, analysis, lobbying, policy and advocacy in its efforts to protect and restore tribal interest in water quantity, water quality and water rights for the health of the watershed ecosystem, preservation of cultural identity and the benefit of tribal members. 

The Norton Bay Inter-Tribal Watershed Council organizes public gatherings to address issues that are impacting the Arctic. Civilized settlements and communities are witnessing their crucial infrastructure threatened by storm surges, eroding coastlines, degrading sea walls, melting sea ice, permafrost, and glaciers. Species in the Arctic are impacted by warming ocean temperatures and dramatic loss of sea ice.
