This strategy applies to Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, Washington and the approximately two hundred seventy Tribal governments in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. It has been developed in consideration of the EPA Administrator's four priorities, the EPA National Strategy, employee input received through an environmental survey; perspectives of our state, tribal, federal and local partners; and the Region 10 mission, vision and values. Looking back to the 2005-2006 timeframe, the Region 10 plan included seven regional priorities: Columbia River Basin, Tribal Environmental Health, Oil and Gas in Alaska and Mining, Diesel Emissions, Coeur d'Alene and Spokane River Basins, Puget Sound Basin, and Grants Management. You will find these priorities worked into our new plan as part of a larger area of emphasis. At the start of our planning process we revised and re-affirmed our mission, vision and values. We believe that an organization is like a tree, it must be rooted in deeply held values, with all employees sharing a common mission, vision and values.
