Stay Informed and Involved
Community involvement plays an important role in the Superfund process. EPA uses a number of different tools and resources to promote effective, ongoing meaningful community involvement. The goals of the Superfund community involvement program are to:
- Keep communities affected by Superfund sites informed throughout the cleanup process.
- Provide opportunities for the public to comment and offer input about site cleanup plans.
- Facilitate the resolution of community and other stakeholder issues tied to a site.
EPA provides Technical Assistance Grants (TAGs) to community groups so residents can hire a technical advisor for independent review of the cleanup. The Eagle River Watershed Council, Eagle Mine Ltd., is the current TAG recipient. EPA is committed to working with members from this group and the broader community surrounding the Eagle Mine Superfund site.
For more information on EPA technical assistance opportunities, what’s going on, how to get involved, and/or how to be included on the site contact list, please contact Jennifer Chergo (firstname.lastname@example.org), EPA Community Involvement Coordinator. Also, please see Public Participation Opportunities for news and updates on how to get involved.
