Comments and suggestions (both verbal and written) received during the public comment period, September 21 to October 21, 2011, will be compiled and addressed by HDOH. Responses will be sent directly to the individual who provided the comment and questions and will be included in the Final Remedial Action Work Plan and EHMP.
