Letter from David Gardiner to Captain J. Murphy

November 13, 1995

Captain J.M. Murphy, Chief
Research and Development Staff
United States Coast Guard
U.S. Department of Transportation
2100 2nd St., SW
Washington DC 20593-0001

Dear Captain Murphy:

Thank you for the Coast Guard's proposal to EPA's Project XL. I am sorry to inform you that the Environmental Protection Agency has decided to reject the U.S. Coast Guard Project XL proposal because the ideas proposed, we believe, can be implemented without the involvement of Project XL. The Agency would, however, like to commend the Coast Guard for its proposed use of innovative environmental technology and its commitment to pollution prevention as the preferred environmental management option.

Because Project XL is a limited pilot program, the selection process is highly competitive. For that reason, the selection committee favors proposals that can be implemented only through EPA's Project XL. We thank you for your interest in Project XL and look forward to hearing of your successful pursuit of environmental excellence and leadership.


David Gardiner
Assistant Administrator
