Partner Charles Howland Participates in USEPA Workgroup to Improve Implementation of the Superfund Program in Environmental Justice Impacted Communities

The National Environmental Justice Advisory Council has issued a report making a number recommendations to the Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on how it can improve communications with, and outcomes at, environmental justice communities which are impacted by the legacy, and cleanups, of contaminated land under the federal Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (“Superfund”). Partner Charlie Howland, chair of Curtis' Environmental group, was appointed by USEPA as a member of the NEJAC Superfund Task Force Work Group which wrote the initial draft of the report, whose specific recommendations focus on how the Agency can better incorporate local communities’ economic and social vision into cleanup work under Superfund.

The report is available here.
