  3. To provide comments and recommendations to responsible parties, regulatory agencies, and the public regarding remediation of contaminated areas at TCAAP;

  5. To ensure that all RAB comments and recommendations are considered in the decision-making processes of the responsible parties and regulatory agencies;

  7. To promote and influence sound policy decisions that benefit and improve the quality of the environment of the communities that are impacted by the contamination at TCAAP;

  9. To ensure that remediation strategies are consistent with proposed or envisioned future land reuse options for the TCAAP property;

  11. To consider the impact of contamination and remediation strategies of the TCAAP from an ecological perspective;

  13. To ensure the public/community is fully informed of the progress that TCAAP is making in restoring contaminated areas and has ample opportunity for engagement in the ongoing work of the RAB; and

  15. To ensure that the RAB has sufficient opportunity to provide input regarding Installation Restoration Program In-Progress Review decision-making events.
