Public Participation Opportunities
EPA awarded a Technical Assistance Grant to a group of local residents who had formed the Kim-Stan Advisory Committee. The committee used the grant funds to hire an advisor to help them monitor the investigation and participate knowledgably in the Superfund process. The committee joined Allegheny County in formally endorsing EPA's proposed plan. In August of 2004, after the Record of Decision was signed, the committee closed out the grant. However, the committee continues to actively monitor site progress.
Community involvement is the process of engaging in dialogue and collaboration with community members. The goal of Superfund community involvement is to advocate and strengthen early and meaningful community participation during Superfund cleanups.
