In the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, EPA's Region 6 requested SAB expedited review of a draft "Emergency Response Quality Assurance Sampling Plan for Hurricane Katrina Response Support Interstate Highways 10 and 610 Intersection New Orleans, Orleans Parish, Louisiana," prepared by an Agency contractor for Region 6. Given the urgency of the request, the SAB was not able to conduct a formal consensus review a. However, twenty four experts serving on SAB committees and panels provided their individual comments to the Agency.
