As noted, there is a public involvement task that is part of the contract that includes a range of activities, such as:
Developing/maintaining an interested parties list (on-going)
Having small group technical coordination meetings with agency representatives and consultants to confirm the best available data for certain technical topics (in progress)
Establishing a Steering Committee as a sounding board to review partial results (developed a list of members)
Note: The first Steering Committee meeting was held December 18, 2017 to discuss progress up to that point.
Public meeting at end to present study results
