The Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) community involvement process allows citizens the opportunity to comment on projects that impact the environment (for example, projects that affect endangered species such as the New York Bog Turtle shown in this view). 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 the project level.

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 need to build local capacity for commenting on local projects. 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
