ACTION:

Notice of Public Invitation to Plenary Sessions of RCRA National Meeting and to Environmental Indicator Forum Sessions.

SUMMARY:

Notice is hereby given of public invitation to the plenary sessions of the regular meeting of the National Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Program, “RCRA: Visions for the Future.” This meeting, August 15-18, 2000, brings together RCRA program representatives from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), state government, and tribes. The National Meeting will explore future management issues of hazardous and nonhazardous (industrial, municipal, and other) waste. A long-standing tradition, the National RCRA Program Meeting continues to be a great opportunity to share with, and learn from, each other. It promotes new EPA Headquarters initiatives, and fosters discussion and education concerning regional and state issues.

Although attendance at the National Meeting breakout sessions is limited to regulators, the general public is invited to attend the two plenary sessions. An Environmental Indicator Forum will be held during the Meeting. The Forum attempts to improve our efforts to ensure the protection of public health, and to control the migration of contaminated water.
