EPA wants to hear from you about enforcement

Wednesday, August 5th, 2009

The U.S. EPA is putting out a call for people to help them with their enforcement program.  They’ve got a cool new tool out to help you look at water quality in relation to other states.

The meeting to discuss what you think EPA should be doing on enforcement will take place on Thursday, August 13, 2009, from 1:00 - 3:00 pm EST at EPA Headquarters, 1201 Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington DC, EPA East Building, Room 1153. A conference line will be available for those who cannot attend in person. The call-in number will be 866-212-0875, access code 764075#. Please contact Chad Carbone at 202-564-2523 with any questions. Also, please contact Chad Carbone to indicate if you will be participating via conference call, or in-person. (If you plan to attend in-person, we need your name two days in advance to get you thru building security.)

This is YOUR  chance to weigh in on what you think the feds need to do to protect clean water. We’ll be on the call too and report back to you on this blog.  We’ll do a play-by-play on our twitter account. To follow us on Twitter click here.

This memo from EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson give us some reason to hope!

First that want to be more transparent. Second, they want to raise the bar for enforcement performance. And third, they want to provide information that is easy to read and understand by the public.

Fans, I have died and gone to heaven!  Wait!  It’s just a memo.  Let’s see how they implement this.  It’s in the implementation after all!
