Restoration advisory boards (RAB)

Restoration Advisory Boards (RABs) were created by the President's July 2, 1993 five-part program for fast track cleanup at installations designated for closure by the Base Closure and Realignment Commission (BRAC) process. The first RABs were created for BRAC '93 installations. The UNITED STATES NAVY has expanded RABs to all naval installations that have a Technical Review Committee (TRC) for their Installation Restoration program. The UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS will convert TRCs into RABS if they meet one of the following DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE (DOD) criteria:

  • A local government requests that a RAB be formed
        or
  • Fifty local residents sign a petition requesting that a RAB be formed
        or
  • An installation determines that a RAB is needed
        or
  • The installation is a base closure

RABs are a forum for the exchange of information and partnership between citizens, the installation, the UNITED STATES ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY (USEPA) , and the state. RABs provide communities input into the environmental cleanup process.
