Inspector General to Probe EPA Response12/15 06:16

   WASHINGTON (AP) -- An internal federal watchdog says it will conduct a 
wide-ranging review of the Environmental Protection Agency's preparedness and 
response to the major hurricanes that struck the United States this year.

   EPA's Office of Inspector General announced its pending probe in a letter 
sent Wednesday to senior officials at the agency.

   The letter says the review will examine whether EPA adequately protected 
human health and water resources in the regions affected by hurricanes Harvey, 
Irma and Maria. The notice says the inspector general's goal is to help the 
agency better plan and respond to future hurricanes.

   The letter did not say how long the review might take.
