Black Oak Tribal Casino Earns California Clean Air Award
On May 15, 2013, the California Clean Air Project, a statewide project of ETR Associates, presented a California Clean Air Award to the Black Oak Casino Resort owned by the Tuolumne Band of Me-Wuk Indians, located in northern California. The award recognized the Tuolumne Band's new smoke-free hotel, which encompasses 148 rooms and a conference center. As a sovereign nation, the Tuolumne Band made a voluntary decision to offer smoke-free luxury and comfort to its hotel guests. The award was presented by Narinder Dhaliwal, ETR Associates' Project Director for the California Clean Air Project.
