Because Webster Field Annex is under the command of Naval Air Station (NAS) Patuxent River, information pertaining to the ER Program at Webster Field is discussed at the Patuxent River RAB Meetings.
Restoration Advisory Board
The NAS Patuxent River Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) is a vital link between the community and government decision-makers. The Navy and the appropriate regulatory agencies are responsible for making decisions about the ER Program. Part of the decision-making process is to consider comments from the public and respond to them.
The goal of a RAB is to encourage regular, two-way communication during the environmental restoration process by:
- Making information about the investigation and cleanup actions available to members of the public
- Gaining effective input from stakeholders on cleanup activities
- Increasing the installation’s responsiveness to the community’s environmental restoration concern
The RAB is an important part of the community involvement program. A successful program can prevent delays and contribute to better decisions about environmental cleanup projects.
RAB is part of the partnership working for effective and efficient cleanup of NAS Patuxent River. The NAS Patuxent River RAB was formed in January 1995. The RAB is co-chaired by an elected community member and a Navy representative. RAB members are considered a key source in efforts to communicate openly and effectively with the community at large. They are provided with information about the ER Program and their input on remediation decisions is actively sought. The RAB contains representatives from the Navy, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE), local government officials, and community members.
