Public Participation

The Voluntary Remediation Program establishes two unique avenues for public participation.


Initial Notice Regarding Acceptance into the VRP

Volunteers must mail a letter to owners of property adjacent to the site notifying the owners of the potential contamination. This letter also must provide instructions for comments and to request a public participation plan (see Fact Sheet #2 for a description of a public participation plan - needs link).

Volunteers must publish a display ad for four consecutive weeks in a newspaper with general circulation in the county where the site is located.

Notice Regarding the Proposed Adoption of a Remedy Agreement

Volunteers must mail a second letter to owners of property adjacent to the site notifying the owners of the proposed remedy along with instructions for how to make comments or to request a public hearing.

Volunteers must also publish a display ad for four consecutive weeks in a newspaper with general circulation in the county where the site is located.
