Encouraging Support in the Cleanup Process
CERCLA and other environmental programs encourage the public to be involved in the environmental cleanup process, particularly at the point in the process where a decision is made about how a site will be remediated.
Community Involvement Plan
The Community Involvement Plan outlines the community involvement activities required by environmental laws, as well as other community involvement activities that the Air Force plans to undertake to keep the community informed. Click here to review the August 2016 Plan.
The Air Force has two advisory boards that facilitate community involvement: the Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) which looks at environmental issues at McGuire, Dix and Lakehurst and the Lakehurst Technical Review Committee (TRC) which looks at environmental issues at Lakehurst. Visit the RAB or TRC pages to learn more.
