We've made some changes to EPA.gov. If the information you are looking for is not here, you may be able to find it on the EPA Web Archive or the January 19, 2017 Web Snapshot.

MyEnvironment Comment Policy

The purpose of this comment entry mechanism is to discuss any environmental worries about your neighborhood that you'd like to share. We encourage comments.

We want to publish your comments, but we expect conversations to follow the conventions of polite discourse. Therefore, we won't post comments that:

  • contain vulgar language, personal attacks of any kind, or offensive terms that target specific ethnic or racial groups
  • promote services or products (non-commercial links that are relevant to the blog post or comment are acceptable)
  • are far off-topic
  • make unsupported accusations.

We don't edit comments to remove objectionable content, so please ensure that your comment contains none of the above.

Reporters are asked to send questions to the EPA Newsroom through their normal channels and to refrain from submitting questions here as comments. Reporter questions will not be posted.

We recognize that the Web is a 24/7 medium and your comments are welcome at any time. However, given the need to manage federal resources, moderating and posting of comments will generally occur during regular business hours Monday through Friday. Comments submitted after hours or on weekends will be read and posted as early as possible the next business day.

To protect your own privacy and the privacy of others, please do not include phone numbers or email addresses in the body of your comment. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this comment policy. We encourage your participation in our discussion and look forward to an active exchange of ideas.
