|Subject:||[CPEO-BIF] March 17 Discussion at EPA|
I see the listening session discussed below as a opportunity to continue
the discussion, begun on this list, about ideas for strengthening the
requirements for disclosing environmental releases. This discussion
continued at November's Brownfields conference, and it's my hope that
people from diverse perspectives can work toward common recommendations
for EPA and its state counterparts. - LS
******* LISTENING SESSION ON ALL APPROPRIATE INQUIRIES RULEThe U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response (OSWER) will hold a listening session on EPA's All Appropriate Inquiries standards, as promulgated as a final rule on November 1, 2005. The All Appropriate Inquiries rule (70 FR 66070) sets federal standards and practices for conducting all appropriate inquiries, as required under Sections 101(35)(B)(ii) and (iii) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA).
The listening session will be held on March 17, 2010, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 (noon). The listening session will take place in room 1153 of the EPA East Building at 1201 Constitution Ave. NW, Washington D.C.
The purpose of the listening session is for EPA to listen to the views of stakeholders and the general public on the current standards and practices for all appropriate inquiries. EPA wants to provide stakeholders and the general public an opportunity to comment on the current implementation of the standards. The Agency is interested in hearing if stakeholders and the general public are encountering issues with regard to the implementation of the required standards and practices. The Agency also is interested in hearing from stakeholders who are satisfied with the current regulation and its implementation.
The listening session is open to the general public. Interested parties and the general public are invited to participate. Parties wishing to provide their views to EPA on the rule, or to listen to the views of other parties, are invited to attend the listening session. Any person may speak at the listening session; however, we encourage those planning to make oral comments to pre-register with EPA. Those planning to speak at the listening session should notify Patricia Overmeyer, of EPA's Office of Brownfields and Land Revitalization at Overmeyer.firstname.lastname@example.org. Parties who do not pre-register may sign up at the door beginning at 8:30 a.m. on March 17. Parties who cannot attend the listening session, or any party who prefers, may submit written comments to EPA by directing their comments to Patricia Overmeyer, either at the email address above or by mailing your comments to Patricia Overmeyer, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, MS 5105T, 1200 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, Washington D.C. 20460. Overnight deliveries or hand delivery should be sent to Patricia Overmeyer, EPA / Office of Brownfields and Land Revitalization, Room 2402R, 1301 Constitution Ave. NW, Washington D.C.
