EPA held a series of roundtable discussions on its Draft Environmental Justice Methodology for the Definition of Solid Waste rule. These meetings were intended to be an opportunity for a public dialogue on how best to conduct the Environmental Justice Analysis. Stakeholders were invited to provide feedback on any aspect of the methodology.
Draft Environmental Justice Methodology for the Definition of Solid Waste Rule (PDF) (16 pp, 105 K) Provides background and overview of the draft Environmental Justice Methodology and includes questions for stakeholder discussion. This is the basic presentation that was used at the three roundtable meetings.
The first public roundtable was held concurrently with the National Environmental Justice Advisory Council (NEJAC) public meeting in New Orleans, LA. It was held on the afternoon of Thursday, January 28, 2010 from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the New Orleans Marriott at 555 Canal Street, New Orleans, LA.
The second public roundtable was held on Tuesday, February 23, 2010, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at EPA’s Potomac Yard building in Arlington, Virginia.
The third public roundtable was held as a web conference to accommodate anyone who would like to be involved in the public discussion but who cannot attend either of the in-person meetings. The web conference was able to accommodate questions and comments from all those attending. The conference was held on Thursday, February 25, 2010, from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
For the convenience of those who were unable to attend any of the meetings we accepted written comments through March 15, 2010, at our Regulations.gov docket under Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-RCRA-2009-0315There will be additional opportunities to engage with this effort; send an email to DSWPublicMeeting@epa.gov or call Tracy Atagi at 703-308-8672 to request to be added to the DSW Environmental Justice mailing list to receive the latest information.
