Portsmouth Community Outreach

Interactive communications enable the public and other stakeholders to learn about the environmental program so they can provide input.

DOE is committed to fostering meaningful public involvement in its decision-making at the site. Interactive communications enable the public and other stakeholders to learn about the environmental program so they can provide input.

Stakeholders include individuals, groups, communities, and other entities in the public and private sectors that are interested in or affected by environmental activities and decisions. Ongoing communications enhance DOE’s ability to consider the public’s interests in cleanup decisions.

DOE staff and contractor personnel engage in a variety of public outreach efforts to inform local stakeholders on plant activities. Examples include, among others, appearances with:

  • Portsmouth Site Specific Advisory Board (SSAB)
  • County commissioners and other elected officials
  • Ohio Environmental Protection Agency
  • Community Reuse Organization (Southern Ohio Diversification Initiative)
  • General public via public meetings
  • Civic groups
  • Economic development professionals
  • Regional universities and high schools
  • Fence line neighbors

DOE also supports educational outreach through its programs including the annual Science Alliance, High School Regional Science Bowl, and the High School Annual Site Environmental Report Summary project.

Stay informed and involved by joining a tour of the site, signing up for email news and updates, following the Portsmouth SSAB activities, and viewing available online project documents.
