PHILADELPHIA (May 25, 2010) - - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will hold two public meetings to discuss the Port of Huntington Tri-State Collaborative Geographic Initiative – an initiative that addresses the importance of environmental compliance for the area’s land, air and water resources.
To make sure citizens in the communities surrounding the Port area have an opportunity to comment on the collaborative goals and the overall strategies, EPA will host two public meetings:
7 p.m., June 1, 2010 - Tuesday
Marshall University Memorial Student Center
Marshall University, Huntington, WVa
7 p.m., June 2, 2010 - Wednesday
Wilson University Student Union
West Virginia State University
The Port Collaborative plan includes assessing the environmental impacts of the Port operations on the surrounding communities, reducing the amount of pollution being released into the environment, and building community skills to help ensure the long-term protection of the environment and public health.
