General CI Toolkit Information

EPA's Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation (OSRTI) prepared the Superfund Community Involvement Toolkit ("CI toolkit") to provide Superfund Regional site teams, community involvement staff, and others with a practical easy-to-use aid for designing and enhancing community involvement activities. The CI toolkit helps users avoid some of the pitfalls common to the community involvement process. It enables them to quickly review and adapt a variety of community involvement tools to engage the community during all stages of the Superfund removal and remedial processes.

How to Use the Toolkit

Each community involvement tool in the toolkit describes an activity or resource that a Superfund site team may use to involve and inform the community. It explains how and when that activity or resource can be used in the Superfund process. It also provides tips for using the tool and notes whether or not it is required by law or regulation. Each tool cross-references other related tools and includes citations to additional reference materials or guidance. Note that multiple tools can be adopted, combined, or reinvented, as needed, to fit the specific needs of community involvement staff or the site team.

New tools are flagged, as are existing tools that have been updated with new information.
