					SOME INTRIGUING EPA FOIA REQUESTS in 2002-2003
By Michael Ravnitzky, mikerav@mindspring.com


The EPA Headquarters has handled a number of interesting FOIA requests.
You
can get a complete list of their FOIA requests, as well as a list of the
requests handled by their field offices.


Really, there are thousands of requests identified by EPA. But I¹ve
selected a few of the requests handled at EPA Headquarters that seem to
be
the most intriguing. I must emphasize that it is purely a personal
selection.


For any of these requests I¹ve identified, you can ask the EPA for


-   a copy of the letter of request,


-   the letter of response,


- the records provided to the requester, such as photocopies or perhaps
even computer databases where applicable, and


- copies of the FOIA administrative tracking file -- including any memos
or
emails associated with processing of the request.


You can ask the EPA for this type of information for any of these
requests.
Please read through these subjects carefully to select the materials you
want.
