the EPA has no funds for cleanup so they hold meetings

supporters like meetings because it gives the impression that EPA is doing something

EPA has been holding meetings on the Hudson River superfund since 1984 and don't expect the Gowanus superfund cleanup to occur any faster.

The EPA does not pay for the clean-up. The polluters do.

The EPA has come up with the most comprehensive plan for a clean-up ever presented.
Next step is to have a Record of Decision signed o it becomes law. This will hopefully happen later this year.

And we need to get the City and Mayor Bloomberg to stop delaying.

Also, this is just as long as the EPA initially explained it would likely take.
