We've made some changes to EPA.gov. If the information you are looking for is not here, you may be able to find it on the EPA Web Archive or the January 19, 2017 Web Snapshot.

What is a User Forum?

This forum is a digital space for tool users to communicate with other users. Anyone can ask new questions or submit answers to other questions. We are very excited to host this opportunity for C-FERST communities to interact, learn from others and get help.

What can I do?

Join in on the excitement! Read through responses, add helpful tips for others and post your questions.

What are the guidelines for using it?

We encourage you to share your thoughts as they relate to the topic being discussed. We review and post comments according to the policy below. Please note that the views expressed in comments on the forum reflect those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official views of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency or the federal government.

We want to publish your comments, but we expect comments generally to be courteous. To that end, we have established the following policy.

We reserve the discretion not to post comments that:

  • Contain obscene, indecent, or profane language;
  • Contain threats or defamatory statements;
  • Contain hate speech directed at race, color, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, ethnicity, age, religion, or disability;
  • Promote or endorse services or products. (Note that non-commercial links that are relevant to the topic or another comment are acceptable.)

Do not submit copyrighted or other proprietary material in any form unless you clearly indicate that you have permission to do so. By posting your comments or other work, you grant EPA and anyone viewing the EPA Web site irrevocable permission to copy, distribute, make derivatives, display or perform the commenter’s work publicly and free-of-charge.

If you are a reporter, please send questions to the EPA Newsroom through normal channels rather than by submitting questions on the forum as comments.

We recognize that the Internet is a 24/7 medium and your comments are welcome at any time. However, given the need to manage federal resources, we generally review and post comments from 8:30 am – 5:30 pm EST/EDT Monday through Friday except on federal holidays. We intend to review and post comments submitted at other times as soon as possible on the next business day.

We ask you to provide your name and e-mail address to make it easier to carry on a conversation. For this reason, we publish your name along with your comment. We ask for your e-mail address so that we can contact you if necessary. It is our policy not to publish your e-mail address.

To protect your privacy, please do not include information that identifies you (e.g., an e-mail address or phone number) in the text of your comment.

You can find additional guidance as to how EPA regards privacy issues within the privacy policy provided on EPA’s Privacy and Security Notice.

We encourage your participation in the User Forum and look forward to an active exchange of ideas!
