MARE ISLAND RESTORATION ADVISORY BOARD
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 Mare Island RAB is a forum for the exchange of information and partnership between citizens, the installation, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) , and the State. The Mare Island RAB consists of members from the Navy, the local community, local business, regulatory agencies, and special interest groups and provides the communities input into the environmental cleanup process.
