GLIN==> Draft Guidelines for Delisting U.S. Areas of Concern



Draft guidelines for delisting U.S. Areas of Concern have been released
for public review and comment.  The draft document, “Restoring United
States Areas of Concern: Delisting Principles and Guidance,” is
available online at http://www.epa.gov/glnpo/aoc/restore.html

The document was prepared by a workgroup of Remedial Action Plan (RAP)
program managers from federal and state agencies.  It recognizes
progress being made in the U.S. Areas of Concern and lays out guidelines
for formally delisting these areas as beneficial uses are restored.  The
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Great Lakes National Program
Office invites public review and comment on the draft guidelines.
Comments should be submitted to

Mr. Mark Elster
U.S. EPA, Great Lakes National Program Office
77 W. Jackson Blvd. (G-17J)
Chicago, IL 60604

Fax: 312/353-2018
Email: elster.mark@epa.gov

The deadline for submitting comments is June 30, 2001.  We hope to
finalize the guidelines in time for the International Joint Commission’s
Great Lakes Biennial Public Forum to be held Sept. 13-15, 2001 in
Montreal.

A special workshop for members of citizens groups working on the U.S.
RAPs is being convened to present and discuss the draft guidelines.  The
workshop is being held on June 22-23, 2001 in Toledo, Ohio. For more
information on the workshop, please contact Matt Doss of the Great Lakes
Commission at 734-665-9135 or via email at mdoss@glc.org.  Information
on the workshop, including the agenda and registration form, is also
