LBNL will lead the outreach efforts for the WESTCARB Project. Outreach activities will include meeting with community leaders, interested citizens, college students and others interested in carbon sequestration in general, and specifically, the pilot tests. Continued interactions with these groups, particularly those in communities located near the pilot projects will continue on a regular basis. Issues, concerns and opinions will be identified and the test plans, particularly the monitoring programs, will be adjusted to provide as much relevant information as possible. We will work with UC Berkeley researchers to develop a systematic way of tracking how opinions about geologic storage projects evolve of the duration of the pilot tests. We will also work closely with the other regional partnerships to share information and participate in nation-wide outreach activities.
