EPA Policies and Tools for enhancing Community Involvement at CERCLA sites:

This website contains additional information on Community Involvement which are used frequently by Community Involvement Coordinators. Although this information does not focus on radioactive contaminants, Community Involvement Coordinators at CERCLA sites with radioactive contamination should find them useful. This is because at CERCLA sites, the process EPA uses to addresses radiological contaminants is the same as that used to address non-radiological (chemical) contaminants.
