EPA wants to hear from you!

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

Dear Stakeholder,

President Obama recently issued Executive Order 13563, requiring each agency to develop a plan to periodically conduct a retrospective review of its significant regulations, and determine if they are ineffective, insufficient, or overly burdensome, and then revise or repeal as
warranted. In response, EPA is developing a review plan and a list of
candidate regulations for potential review, and we would like to solicit your input on both. In order to do so, the Office of Water is participating in two listening sessions to be held on March 14th, 2011, and March 17th, 2011.

EPA will hold an Agency-wide Public Meeting on Monday March 14, 2011 from 9:30 a.m. until 4:45 p.m to solicit feedback on the Agency’s draft
review plan and all EPA regulations. The Office of Water will be
hosting two water-specific listening sessions in the afternoon. This public meeting will be held at the Hilton Arlington, 950 N. Stafford Street, Arlington, VA 22203. Please review additional information
available at: http://www.epa.gov/improvingregulations/ Registration
information for the March 14th Public Meeting is available here:

The Office of Water will also solicit input from the public and hold a webinar listening session on water-specific significant regulations on
March 17th, from 2:00 - 3:30 p.m., EST. Additional information,
including information on registering for this Office of Water webinar, can be obtained by going to EPA’s website http://www.epa.gov/improvingregulations/, or you can contact Keith Bartlett at [email protected]
