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

The Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation (OSRTI) is offering this course which is based on the document "Superfund Response Actions: Temporary Relocations Implementation Guidance" 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
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: OSCs, 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.* Important Notice: Due to the content presented during a CEC course and the restrictions in place for non-citizens to enter federal buildings, international attendees are not permitted to attend CEC courses.
