    professionals and community members interested in health issues.  We focus on health and risk issues relevant to the BoRit site and the nearby community.  HERS pays attention to the University of Pennsylvania historical exposure reconstruction study, health education outreach to local health professionals, and following up on CAG questions regarding BoRit site exposures and health.

  • Removal, Remediation and Monitoring Workgroup (RR&M Workgroup) Minutes
    Additional Workgroup Documents

    The responsibility of the RR&M Workgroup is to review, assess and comment upon the technical aspects of EPA's removal and remediation work. Construction work, monitoring methods and remediation planning are all scrutinized. The RR&M Workgroup reports to the CAG.  Meetings are open to the public, please notify gordonchase2000@gmail if interested.

  • Rules Committee Minutes
    Additional Workgroup Documents

    The Rules Committee provides guidance to CAG leadership on issues and questions related to the BoRit CAG Mission and Operating Procedures.  The Rules Committee is responsible for making sure that rules and procedures are followed for voting, membership, and the conducting of business, and is responsible for proposing necessary changes to the Operating Procedures.

  • Future Uses Minutes
    Additional Workgroup Documents

    The Future Uses group develops and updates a community vision for future use of the BoRit Site.  The vision represents a desirable balance of conservation, environmental protection, and site-appropriate public recreational and community use.  The vision is a guideline only.  The ultimate extent and location of public access will be determined by the remedial solution(s) selected by EPA, and later detailed site improvements plans undertaken by the individual property owners.
