Tshimakain Creek Labs began roughly 20 years ago. The Spokane Tribe of Indians Fisheries Department created “Spokane Tribal Water Lab” as a tribal program intended to reduce costs within the Fisheries Department. Within a few years, “The Water Lab” as it was commonly referred to began providing services to other tribal departments, including Lake Roosevelt Fisheries, Indian Health Service, and the tribe’s Water Resource Program, that were interested in testing surface water and drinking water.
