Environmental Enlightenment #200
By Ami Adini - Reissued April 19, 2017

This is a SHORT, LIGHT and SIMPLE newsletter. Its purpose is to rekindle in the initiated terminology they have once learned, and enlighten the uninitiated on terms they may have heard but never knew the meaning of.

Power of Simplicity -
The EPA's Citizen's Guide to Cleanup Technologies

I’ve run into a treasure-trove.

EPA Series: A Citizen's Guide to Cleanup Technologies


See there:

The Citizen's Guide series is a set of 22 fact sheets that summarize cleanup methods used at Superfund and other sites. The series includes information about new technologies and techniques. Each fact sheet is two pages long and answers six questions about the cleanup method:
  1. What is it?
  2. How does it work?
  3. How long will it take?
  4. Is it safe?
  5. How might it affect me? and
  6. Why use it?

The FACT SHEETS are designed to convey otherwise-complex information in layperson’s language and provide grassroots information enabling the uninitiated make informed decisions.

The power of communication lies in simplicity.

The Citizen’s Guide is aiming at such a goal and doing it well.

In coming newsletters, I will present samples from the Guide and ease the entry even more.

An otherwise unreachable peak, can be overcome through comfortably gradated inclines.


You can find past issues of our "Environmental Enlightenment" at amiadini.com Wealth of information about environmental site assessments in the real estate transactions and issues concerning assessment and cleanup of contamination in the subsurface soil and groundwater.

Call me if you have any questions. There are no obligations.
