Public Meeting on March 2 for the Pepco Benning Road Investigation


Pepco Benning Road Power Plant

This Saturday, March 2, Pepco and the District Department of the Environment (DDOE) will host a Community Meeting at River Terrace Elementary School (420 34th St NE, Washington, DC 20019) from 10 am to 12 pm. This is an opportunity for anyone interested in human health and environmental justice issues to learn more about the investigation for potential contaminants (e.g., potentially toxic organic compounds such as PCBs and PAHs, heavy metals) currently underway at the Benning Road facility and sections of the nearby Anacostia River. Representatives from DDOE, Pepco, and the Community Advisory Group (CAG) for this project will be there to provide background information concerning the site, updates on all activities, and answers to questions from community members.

Sampling of the study area started in February 2013 after DDOE approved the work plans for the investigation. It is imperative that local residents and other stakeholders get involved now so that your concerns and thoughts about the process can be taken into consideration before results become available. All documents for this investigation can be found on DDOE's website. They have recently added summaries of each document -- check them out!

We hope to see you this Saturday!

If you are unable to attend, please stay tuned to the project websites linked above and feel free to contact anyone listed on those pages for more information or to voice your concerns.

Everything typed was actually very logical. But, think about this, what if you added a little information? I ain't suggesting your content isn't solid, but what if you added a title to possibly grab a person's attention? I mean Public Meeting on March 2 for the Pepco Benning Road Investigation | anacostiaws.org is a little boring. You might look at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create post titles to get people interested. You might add a video or a picture or two to get people interested about everything've got to say. Just my opinion, it would make your posts a little bit more interesting.
