EPA has set up an electronic mailbox for participants to submit questions prior to the webinar, and EPA will seek to respond during the webinar. However, due to the volume of questions anticipated, EPA may not be able to respond to all questions. Please submit any advance questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “108(b) webinar”. The deadline for submitting advance questions is January 6, 2017.
