Naval Weapons Industrial Reserve Plant Calverton

Environmental Restoration Program Public Website


A Community Involvement Plan (CIP) is a site-specific strategy to enable meaningful community involvement throughout the restoration and cleanup process at the former NWIRP Calverton. The CIP was developed to comply with USEPA, Department of Defense, Navy, and Federal Registration Requirements and incorporated input from the public, through surveys and interviews, on how the public would like to be involved in the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act process. Updates to the CIP are generally conducted every five years. The latest CIP update began in 2021 and was finalized in May 2022.

What is the Restoration Advisory Board (RAB)?

The RAB gives the community access to information about the progress of the Navy’s ERP activities at NWIRP Calverton. The RAB concept allows an interested subset of the local community to become educated on the often highly technical aspects of the planning, investigation, and risk management decisions and actions of specific Navy ERP Sites and provide advice to the decision makers based on common issues and concerns of the local community. The RAB will also act as a liaison group, disseminating information to the community and soliciting the community for comments. The RAB is not a decision-making board, but a valuable resource in ensuring local knowledge, issues, and concerns are considered and incorporated where appropriate into the Navy’s planning and execution of the ERP at NWIRP Calverton. The Navy will consider all advice provided by the RAB, whether offered as a consensus or by individual members.
