EPA promotes fair and meaningful public involvement so that all people enjoy equal access to the decision-making process and the same degree of protection from environmental and health hazards regardless of race, color, national origin or income level.
To do this in the EPA Superfund program, EPA staff works with the community and partners to conduct community outreach activities in areas affected by the Superfund designation. EPA staff develops a community involvement plan (CIP) that summarizes public concerns about the site and outlines how people can engage throughout the Superfund process.
Community involvement activities at the San Jacinto River Waste Pits site are designed to:
- Inform and update the public about the site and the cleanup process.
- Engage the public to provide meaningful input into the Superfund process and site cleanup decisions.
- Sustain public engagement throughout the Superfund timeline.
