November 14, 2019 - EPA Community Advisory Group Workshop

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) held an informatory meeting at the Westfield Activities Center on November 14. Community Advisory Groups (CAGs) serve as an important tool for community involvement at Superfund sites for both EPA and the community. Attendees learned more about how these groups are typically structured, the different approaches to forming a CAG that best represents the community, provide feedback to EPA, and learn the next steps. CAG membership should be as inclusive as possible and reflect the composition of the community near the site and the diversity of local interests. The community will take the lead to decide membership and EPA will discuss the next steps.

If you didn't attend this meeting but are interested in participating in a CAG, contact Diane Russell, EPA community involvement coordinator at 989-395-3493, weekdays 9:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m., or at russel.diane@epa.gov. For more information on the site cleanup underway, please visit www.epa.gov/superfund/mclouth-steel and www.michigan.gov/deqmclouthnorth.
