Re: Reminder of October 26 CCC Meeting
As you know, there will be a meeting of the Citizens Coordinating Council for the EPA-GE Housatonic cleanup on October 26 from 5:30 to 7:30 PM. The meeting will be held at the Berkshire South Community Center, 15 Crissey Road in Great Barrington. The meeting is open to the public. Directions are included below.
This meeting will focus on the proposal from GE for the Interim Media Protection Goals (IMPGs or preliminary cleanup goals) for the Rest of River, which extends beyond Pittsfield south into Connecticut. There will be a presentation about the IMPGs as well as discussion and questions about the use of the IMPGs in the Rest of River decision making process. EPA is seeking informal feedback from the CCC about the GE proposal prior to providing formal comments on the proposal to GE in November. The full proposal of IMPGs submitted to EPA by GE can be viewed at www.epa.gov/region1/ge. Click on Rest of River, and the IMPG proposal is in the section called GE Reports and Documents, towards the bottom of the page.
For this meeting, we will have several new members joining the discussion. There will be an orientation session for the new members at the Berkshire South Community Center at 4:30 PM on the day of the meeting. The orientation is open to all continuing CCC members as well. A list of new and continuing members and the organizations they represent will be distributed along with the meeting agenda in the week before the meeting.
Please let me know if you have any questions about the meeting. I look forward to working with you on October 26.
