EPA To Host Final Community Focus Group About Olin Chemical Superfund Site On April 28

Below is an announcement from the EPA:

WILMINGTON, MA — EPA is working on a Community Involvement Plan (CIP) for the Olin Chemical Superfund Site. The CIP will inform how EPA engages with the community throughout the cleanup process. EPA has conducted a series of interviews to collect feedback for the CIP. EPA has hosted three online focus groups with the goal of soliciting comments to further understand community members’ needs, concerns, and expectations about the site.

A fourth and final online focus group is scheduled for Thursday, April 28, 2022, from 6pm to 7:30pm.

If you would like to participate in the final focus group for the CIP, please sign up here: Focus Group Sign Up

If you need special assistance to participate, please contact Charlotte Gray, EPA’s Community Involvement Coordinator, at gray.charlotte@epa.gov or 617-918-1243 by April 26th at 5pm.

CIPs, which are required by the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan, specify EPA-planned community involvement activities to help communities understand: (1) the Superfund cleanup process; (2) how, when, and where EPA will provide site-related information to the public; (3) how the public can be actively involved in the cleanup process; and (4) the key points in the cleanup process and the ways in which EPA takes public input into consideration during interim and final decisions. The CIP reflects community needs, concerns, and expectations that are identified through community interviews and other means.
