The Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) community involvement process allows citizens the opportunity to comment on projects that impact the environment. However many public comment periods receive little if any attention and there is an enormous need for technical commenting. Our goal is to fill that need when we comment on projects involving air pollution, water pollution, hazardous waste disposal, protection of endangered species (such as Texas' Attwater's Prairie Chicken shown above).
Environmental Review, Inc. is organizing an online community of volunteer engineers and scientists to review and comment on documents posted online by governmental agencies for 30-day public comment periods. If you know about environmental science and regulations, come help us provide public oversight for environmentally sensitive projects. All of our work is done online. We have a national directory of public comment periods and examples of our work on our website. We comment during the public review stages for industrial permits for air and water discharges, cleanup plans, and development plans with environmental concerns.
We are working toward building local capacity for commenting in Texas. Experience as a consultant or regulator is preferred however recent college graduates and students in engineering or sciences may also apply. To learn how to join our collaborative team email Tom at show contact info
