Frequent Questions

How can the public be involved in Corrective Action?

Public participation plays an integral role in all RCRA programs, including Corrective Action. The RCRA Public Participation Manual provides a clear description of the many public participation activities that are required by federal regulations. It also encourages both the regulators and those responsible for conducting cleanup activities to involve interested members of the public at all appropriate points. Many facilities are assuming greater responsibility for involving the public throughout corrective action; therefore, interested members of the public should feel free to contact representatives of the facility in addition to the lead Agency.
