Fwd: P2 Plan Tech. Assistance


Most of my work involves facilitating the development of P2 Plans in cases
where there has been an SEP or Citizens Suit.  I facilitate the development
of the P2 Plan and then AUDIT the implementation of that plan for 3 to 5
years.  I have performed more than 75 of these projects in the past 10
years.  Lately I have been involved in the same type of programs involving
odor complaints in the West by preparing plans to eliminate the odor at the
source.  I can send Neil copies of plans that I have facilitated.  I am
using the problem-solving and decision-making tools that will be featured
in the new EPA Facility Pollution Prevention Guide that will be soon going
out to peer review.  I would be pleased  to help Neil.  While Ms. Dorsey
helped develop the plans, she may have not been privy to the lessons
learned of 3 to 5 years of implementation.  It is in the "lessons learned"
that one REALLY learns what works and what does not work.
