    EPA: Riverton part of the Wind River Indian Reservation

    In a startling revelation by the federal government, the Environmental Protection Agency ruled that the City of Riverton has been part of the Wind River Indian Reservation for the past 108 years.
    The revelation came to light after a five-year wait for the approval of an application by the Northern Arapaho and Eastern Shoshone tribes to gain state status for administering air quality on the reservation. The decision won’t only affect environmental policy. It’s likely to bring about broad changes to how the governments of Riverton and Fremont County function.
