Municipalities to Meet With EPA in New York to Discuss Environmental Management Pilot

Participants in a two-year-long Environmental Management System pilot project sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will meet July 15 in New York City to discuss the benefits and pitfalls of the effort.

The project is designed to help small and medium-size public-sector organizations meet their environmental needs. Six municipalities--New York City; Scottsdale, Ariz.; Gaithersburg, Md.; Lowell, Mass.; Indianapolis, Ind.; and Londonderry, N.H.--as well as the Massachusetts Department of Corrections; Wayne County, Mich.; and the Lansing, Mich., Board of Water and Light participated in the pilot project.

The Global Environment and Technology Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to working on sustainable communities, developed and managed the initiative in conjunction with the EPA to provide training and technical assistance and to produce a final report describing lessons learned.

The Municipalities Initiative report will be available at the end of the year. More information about the initiative can be found at www.getf.org/enviromgmt.htm.
