Office of Water Accepting Comments on EPA's Retrospective Review Plan
and Significant Regulations for Potential Review.

President Obama recently issued Executive Order 13563, requiring each
agency to develop a plan to periodically conduct a retrospective review
of its regulations, and determine if they are ineffective, insufficient,
or overly burdensome, and then revise or repeal as warranted.   In
response, EPA is developing a review plan and a list of candidate
regulations for potential review, and we would like to solicit your
feedback on both.  In order to do so, the Office of Water is
participating in two listening sessions to be held on March 14th and
March 17th, 2011.

EPA will hold an Agency-wide Public Meeting on Monday March 14, 2011
from 9:30 a.m. until 4:45 p.m. to solicit feedback on the Agency's draft
review plan and all EPA regulations.   The Office of Water will be
hosting two water-specific listening sessions in the afternoon.  This
public meeting will be held at the Hilton Arlington, 950 N. Stafford
Street, Arlington, VA 22203.  Additional information is available at:
http://www.epa.gov/improvingregulations/    Registration information for
the March 14th Public Meeting is available here:

The Office of Water will also solicit input from the public and hold a
webinar listening session on water-specific significant regulations on
March 17th, from 1:00 - 2:30 p.m., EST.  Additional information,
including information on registering for this webinar, can be obtained
by going to EPA's website http://www.epa.gov/improvingregulations/ , or
contact Keith Bartlett at Bartlett.Keith@epa.gov
