Tomorrow: EPA webinar on effective land use

Mathy Stanislaus, assistant administrator for EPA’s Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response, and other EPA experts will answer citizen questions about effective land use during an Internet-based "town hall meeting" from 2 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. tomorrow (March 30) EST.

According to the EPA, effective and efficient land use saves commuting time, money, resources, and energy. Land use is also a major factor affecting the amount of greenhouse gases. A recent EPA document found that 16-20 percent of such emissions are associated with land management policies.

What do you think about EPA’s land use policies. What role does the public see EPA playing in land reuse? How can land cleanup contribute to effective reuse?

You can participate in the discussion via your computer or toll-free telephone call. The details are available here.
