Dan & Debbie,
It was our understanding that the purpose of the public interviews would be to
gauge concerns and expectations of nearby communities regarding West Lake
Landfill and how they want to be interacted with during the public comment
period. The interviews should be done prior to the public comment period and
information gathered included in the CIP. The interviews would not
necessarily be used to determine which remedy the public supports. We were
also under the impression from our discussion at the last site tour that EPA
was committed to conducting these interviews. I think a call to discuss this
issue is warranted. Please advise of availability. We are available Thursday
or Friday morning this week and Monday or Tuesday of next week.

Shawn, Branden,
Following up on the question you posed in yesterday’s biweekly conference call, I spoke with Debbie Kring yesterday on the issue of conducting public interviews as part of the revised CIP. Debbie stated that it has not been decided whether EPA will conduct these interviews, but if our Office of Public affairs decides to do so, they will be conducted in the spring. OPA intends to treat these interviews separately from public comment periods and/or public meetings associated with any decision documents.
If you have any other questions on this issue, please contact Debbie directly at 913-551-7725.
Sincerely, Daniel R. Gravatt, PG US EPA Region 7 SUPR I MOKS 901 North 5th Street, Kansas City, KS 66101 Phone (913) 551-7324 Fax (913) 551-7063
Principles and integrity are expensive, but they are among the very few things worth having.
