Agenda Item #1. Introductory Remarks

At 6:30, Mr. Jim McKenna gathered those in attendance to prepare for a site tour. He described the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Permit for Corrective Action and Waste Minimization (Permit Number VA1210020730) issued to Alliant Ammunition and Powder Company LLC and the United States Department of the Army, copies of which will be added to the RFAAP information repository at the Christiansburg library. The 1987 RCRA Facility Assessment will also be added to the information repository.

Agenda Item #2. Radford Army Ammunition Plant (RFAAP) Site Tour

Mr. McKenna and Mr. Jerry Redder led a tour of Site Screening Area (SSA) sites and structures included RCRA permit. These sites, listed at the end of these notes, will be screened to determine the need for further action. RAB members were driven around the RFAAP in a van. There was frequent discussion about the status of SSA sites and questions about general facility operations—past, present, and future.

Mr. McKenna concluded the tour at 8:30 p.m. Another site tour—this time for the New River Unit—is planned for the next RAB meeting, will be held on Thursday, 20 September 2001, at 6:30 p.m.
