According to an agency press release, the goal of the initiative is to accelerate cleanups of contaminated sites where possible, address a greater number of contaminated sites, and put the sites back into productive use while protecting human health and the environment. The initiative also seeks to provide communities with greater accountability and transparency on the agency's land cleanup programs. While many actions identified in the ICI are underway, the EPA said it intends to use the comments it receives to further evaluate and refine the draft plan.
The draft plan will be available for public comment for 30 days.
More information on the initiative and how to comment on the plan.
