Contents Notes
The study focused on health agency activity from 1990 to 1995, a period in which ATSDR and many state and local health agencies increased their community involvement efforts. The purpose of the study was to (1) identify sites that both agency and community officials characterize as community involvement "success stories"; (2) determine what practices and factors contribute to "success" at the sites; and (3) provide a wide range of examples of successful practices and recommendations for improved community involvement practices. The report includes case studies of activities concerning 11 hazardous waste sites, and describes sites at which ATSDR, state, or local health agencies were the lead agency.
