From the blog post (December 8, 2009):
The EPA’s Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response (OSWER) is expanding public participation this month, launching a new online discussion forum on the EPA’s blog and planning a “video town hall discussion” to discuss the Superfund. In an effort “to enhance the dialogue between EPA and the public,” the new online forum and the video discussion will give the public an opportunity to present their views, ask questions, and discuss solutions related to the work of OSWER. As the name implies, OSWER deals with solid waste issues and responses to emergencies like oil spills. The Superfund program, the Risk Management Program, brownfields development, and many different waste and recycling topics fall within this office’s jurisdiction.
