Community Resources

In 2013, EPA awarded the POWER (Protecting Our Water and Environmental Resources) Action Group a Technical Assistance Grant (TAG). The TAG helps communities participate in Superfund cleanup decision-making. It provides funding to community groups to contract their own technical advisor to interpret and explain technical reports, site conditions, and EPA’s proposed cleanup plans and decisions throughout the Superfund process. The EPA Remedial Project Manager (RPM) and Community Involvement Coordinator (CIC) work closely with the technical advisor to coordinate technical reviews of work plans and reports.
