Community Outreach

This web page was established to help provide the public with information on the ER efforts occurring in Hawaii. The Department of Defense (DoD) has taken steps to increase public participation in its cleanup program by partnering with the community to form Restoration Advisory Boards (RABs).
The RAB provides a forum for the exchange of information between the Navy and the local community regarding environmental cleanup activities at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam sites and offers an opportunity for communities to provide input to the cleanup process. RAB meetings are held quarterly and are assigned to three specific locations at Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Central Oahu and Waianae.


Fact Sheets
Federal and state guidelines require ER Program personnel to communicate with community members regarding relevant program activities. Fact sheets are one method of communication that is used during the various stages of the ER Program. These fact sheets will inform interested parties of the progress of the program and of site-specific actions.
Public Comment Periods
In an effort to ensure effective two-way communication with local community members, public comment periods are a federal requirement of the Remedial Action Process and are established at critical times in the cleanup process. All public comments received by the Navy will continue to be considered and, as appropriate, incorporated into final documents.
Public Meetings
Community meetings are required to be held at certain key points in the cleanup process in accordance with federal and state requirements. Notices of any upcoming public meetings will be published in the Honolulu Star Advertiser. In an effort to reach affected community members, when appropriate, community meetings will be held in the community closest in proximity to the ER Sites of interest.
