COMMUNITY ROLE IN THE REMEDIATION SELECTION PROCESS 

EPA relies on public input to ensure that the concerns of the community are considered in selecting an effective remedy for each Superfund site.  To this end, the RI (Remedial Investigation) report, FS (Feasability Study) report, FS report addendum, and this Proposed Plan have been made available to the public for a public comment period that concludes on March 28, 2013.

Two public meetings will be held during the public comment to present the conclusions of the RI/FS, elaborate further on the reasons for recommending the preferred remedy and receive public comments.
