This document illustrates EPA’s spectrum of public involvement, which is characterized by five different “outcomes” that result from public involvement in agency decisions. It parallels the IAP2 Spectrum, but is tailored to the specific needs of a regulatory agency.
EPA created this tool to support public involvement. It is an excellent resource in support of EPA's Public Participation Guide.You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page. See EPA’s About PDF page to learn more.
