Partner Charles Howland appointed to EPA’s Superfund Working Group of the National Environmental Justice Advisory Council

 

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has appointed Environmental Practice head Charles Howland to the Superfund Working Group of the National Environmental Justice Advisory Council (NEJAC).  Prompted by the recommendations of the EPA Administrator’s 2017 Superfund Task Force report, the Agency is focused on improving the effectiveness of the Superfund program in meeting its goals of cleaning up, and where possible reusing, the nation’s most challenging contaminated sites.  

As part of this effort, the EPA has tasked Charlie and the other members of the NEJAC Superfund Working Group with developing specific recommendations to the EPA Administrator that will identify barriers, solutions, and best practices to achieve improved cleanups, focusing on how best to advance community acceptance and revitalization through remediation and reuse of Superfund sites in a manner that recognizes the unique burdens and vulnerabilities of environmental justice populations living in and around those sites.
