Permanent Relocation
Hosted by U.S. EPA
Office of Superfund Remediation & Technology Innovation (OSRTI)

This course is based on the document "Interim Policy on the Use of Permanent Relocations as Part of Superfund Remedial Actions" and will focus on the following topics:

  • Making the decision: Is relocation a viable option at your site?
  • Gathering household information: What do you need to know?
  • What is a "reasonable expense"? What is not appropriate?
  • How to work with the affected residents - Communication is key
  • Dealing with stress and disruption
  • Resolving disputes
  • Anticipating problems - Developing creative solutions
  • Planning, Coordination, Advisory Services, Appraisal and Acquisition, Appeals

There also will be some discussion on business relocations and we will also talk about rebuilding of demolished structures. The course will include a discussion of these topics and more and students will have a chance to apply their knowledge to a case study. Students are strongly encouraged to bring site-specific examples or questions for discussion. The appropriate audience for this course includes: RPMs, CICs, and attorneys with ORC. USACE real estate experts also will be invited. Experts and novices are encouraged to attend. The course is most helpful when there is a balance between representatives from each of the identified job classifications. Attendance is limited.

*This course is offered free of charge to all registrants who are confirmed to attend.*
