Public Participation Opportunities:
Prior to making cleanup decisions for site contamination, DOE, EPA and KDEP reach out to the public for feedback on the proposed cleanup plan. Notices of these public comment periods are provided by DOE through local news media outlets. Additional information on public participation opportunties is provided in the Paducah Community Relations Plan http://energy.gov/pppo/downloads/paducah-community-relations-plan
DOE commissioned a Citizens Advisory Board (CAB) that meets each month. The CAB provides advice and recommendations to the Department of Energy (DOE) regarding cleanup activities associated with past operations and disposal activities at the site, waste management activities, and potential future economic redevelopment of the site. CAB meetings are also an opportunity for the general public to provide feedback to the DOE on site cleanup and related activities. Both EPA and KDEP participate in CAB activities.
