DEP Aggregate Advisory Board Committee To Discuss Sinkhole Issues Paper May 5

The Regulatory, Legislative and Technical Committee of DEP’s Aggregate Advisory Board will discuss a background policy paper DEP staff prepared entitled Resolving Sinkhole Issues: A State Government Perspective at its meeting on May 5. (formal notice)
Although the policy paper was prepared in 2005, it was based on a series of major sinkhole occurrences DEP investigated from 1997 to 2005 related to sinkhole formation as a result of groundwater withdrawal, urbanization and stormwater handling.
The meeting will be held in the 14th Floor Conference Room of the Rachel Carson Building starting at 10:00.  To join the meeting by conference phone, call 1-650-479-3208, Meeting Number: 640 749 002, Password: EarthEnviroEd$50.
