CHEJ is holding a series of 4 conference calls to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) draft School Siting Guidelines and help us develop public comments before the February 18th comment deadline.
The conference calls will be every Wednesday from 7:00PM to 8:00PM (Eastern Time) starting Wednesday, January 19. The first call on January 19th will provide an overview of the EPA guidelines. We will start each call with up to 30 minutes of informational presentations followed by 30 minutes of discussion time for people to ask questions, provide input and recommendations on the issues. Each call will have a priority issue to focus on and a more detailed agenda on the issue will be sent out before the call.

Call# 1: Overview of EPA proposed School Siting Guidelines
Stephen Lester, CHEJ Science Director, and Steve Fischbach, Rhode Island Legal Services Attorney, both served on EPA’s Working Group that helped develop the draft guidelines. They will describe the history of the EPA siting guidelines, how the Working Group created recommendations for EPA to include in the guidelines, and discuss how guidelines can be improved. 
Please let me know if you can participate in the January 19th call by contacting Makia Burns at or (703) 237-2249 ext. 21. Once you RSVP, I will send you informational materials and conference number.  No registration cost. Depending on your phone carrier and/ or plan, you may have to pay for long-distance phone charges to participate on the conference call.
We highly encourage you to review the EPA draft Guideline before call so you can prepare questions and more fully participate in discussion. Your input will help CHEJ to formulate comments that we will submit to EPA.
