Public Participation that begins after the all the information is gathered, everything decided and recommendations are ready to be presented to the public is not adequate public participation. Public participation must begin at the beginning, not the end or near the end.

Sunoco submitted a public notice at the time of the Notice of Intent to Remediate (NIR) that started the Act 2 process, and similarly when the NIR was updated two times afterwards. In addition, Sunoco/Evergreen completed public notice when each of the 21 Act 2 reports were submitted to the PADEP. Evergreen also held a public meeting in 2006, during the early stages of the Act 2 activities at the Site, and remains committed to continuing public participation as part of the public involvement plan. This has included and will continue to include additional public meetings.
