Superfund Research Program
SRP staff has worked closely with the Office of Land and Emergency Management (OLEM), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) office that has responsibility for all EPA hazardous waste-related programs, including Superfund. Specifically within OLEM, we have established ongoing ties with the Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation (OSRTI) and its Technology Innovation Program (TIP).
On a regular basis, SRP staff meets with staff at OSRTI, the OLEM office responsible for implementing EPA's Superfund program, to discuss ongoing and future coordination efforts. Michael Adam serves as the program liaison to SRP and coordinates SRP activities within OLEM and OSRTI. In addition, SRP coordinates closely with OSRTI's Community Involvement Center to share community outreach materials and tools and to assist local communities more effectively.
To further the transfer of research results, SRP staff has networked with TIP to leverage their communication tools with the broader EPA, federal, state, and, private contractor remediation community. The Risk e-Learning Web Seminars, initiated in the fall of 2002, is a prime example of leveraging resources. The series has reached thousands of people, largely from federal and state environmental agencies, consulting and engineering firms, and academia.
