"This publication was made possible by USEPA grant (number). Its contents are solely the responsibility of the grantee and do not necessarily represent the official views of the USEPA. Further, USEPA does not endorse the purchase of any commercial products or services mentioned in the publication."The Lead/Contact principal investigator is responsible for ensuring that all members of the project team comply with these acknowledgement requirements.
