The Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) completed the draft Supplemental Environmental Project (SEP) Policy and held a 45 day public comment period from March 2 through April 17th, 2015. During the informal comment period, DTSC conducted five (5) public comment workshops located in Fresno, Los Angeles, Oakland, Brawley, and Monterey. The Workshops were purposed to present DTSC's draft SEP Policy, to obtain the public's comments and to learn of concerns relating to the Policy. A total of 73 members of the public attended the Workshops. DTSC posted on its web site: a bilingual Public Notice;Frequently Asked Questions about SEPS;request for special accommodations;and information on how to participate and provide public comments. The Public Notice was emailed to approximately 2,000 contacts, including over 175 tribal contacts. An email address, SEPemail@example.com, was created to receive public comments by email. Additionally, the Public Notice was featured on DTSC Newsfeed, and Twitter.
DTSC will continue conducting public outreach as the SEP Policy Implementation proceeds in order to increase transparency, inform the public about the progress of the SEP Policy Implementation, and gather feedback and input from the public through workshops and other public outreach events. Updates will be added below detailing the time and place as the planning of the events are finalized.
