Technical Support Project - Engineering Forum
The Engineering Forum is a group of engineers and other technical support staff that support the superfund and Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) programs in each of the 10 EPA regional offices. The group was organized to exchange up-to-date information related to engineering remediation issues at Superfund and RCRA sites. Additional participants come from the EPA Laboratory System and EPA headquarters. The forum promotes communication between the regions and the laboratories and has three primary purposes:
- to bring the current state-of-the-science to each regional office as it is developed through the research efforts at the labs.
- to focus laboratory resources on research areas important to engineers and technical support staff working in each EPA region.
- to maintain consistency in the interpretation of guidance and application of policy throughout the country.
