Agreement with Newton Schools

Organization(s) Environmental Protection Agency - Region 1
Project Description In September 2003, EPA Region 1-NE funded the city of Newton, MA to establish environmental teams in the city's 21 schools, evaluate environmental conditions, and develop environmental management plans for prioritizing and addressing issues in a subset of these schools. In addition, the cooperative agreement provides partial funding for four upcoming workshops entitled "Building Municipal/School Partnerships to Create School Chemical Safety Programs." These trainings will be held in March-April 2004 time frame and will assist municipal health, fire, LEPC, and DPWs working with schools to address chemical management concerns within schools. MA DEP is also providing partial funding for these workshops.
