How may I participate in the conversation?
The forum is open to the public for commenting. Comments are moderated according to our comment policy. Please note that comments will be reviewed for posting during regular business hours (8:30 AM and 4:30 PM Eastern time). The views expressed in comments do not necessarily reflect the official views of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency or the federal government.
In what order do the comments appear on the forum?
Comments are added in reverse chronological order, with the newest comment at the top of the home page.
Why do you ask for my name and email address when I leave a comment? How do you protect my privacy?
Providing your name or email address is optional. We ask for your name so that it is easier to carry on a conversation, so we will publish it along with your comment. We ask for your email address so that we may contact you if necessary. We will not publish or sell your email address.
To protect yourself, please don’t include information that identifies you in the body of your comment, such as email addresses or phone numbers. We don’t edit comments, so we won’t be able to publish comments containing such information.
