Presentation Overview:

OSCs are challenged to be well versed in many technical and regulatory aspects of the environmental field. One of the regulatory aspects is the requirement for community involvement as specified in the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP). The NCP outlines specific activities, deliverables and timelines that must be followed during a given removal action. In addition to the required community involvement activities, there are many useful and timely activities that an OSC can engage in to support their removal action and avoid miscommunication and confusion between the agency and the public.

This two-hour webinar provides practical information and tools including:

  • Take-home handouts outlining the specific requirements for community involvement as set forth in the NCP
  • A discussion on the development of an Administrative Record and public notifications
  • Lessons learned: A community engagement case study
  • Useful tips for developing presentations and communicating information
