Prior to approval of this proposed Voluntary Remediation Agreement, NMED will allow until Dec. 14, 2020, to receive written comments and during which time a public meeting may be requested by any interested person. Requests for the public meetings shall be in writing and shall set forth the reasons why the meeting should be conducted. A meeting will be conducted if NMED determines there is significant public interest.
