Meeting Notes

RAB meeting started approximately 700pm. The meeting began with
introductions and a presentation by Kristina Curley of the U.S. Army
Environmental Command (AEC). The presentation gave a brief history of the RAB process, explaining the purpose and goals of the RAB program. She went on to explain the intended roles and responsibilities of the co-chairs and the elected members of the RAB. Comments from one citizen attendee related to an online RAB handbook and the distinction of HWMU 13 aka the active Open Burning Ground and SWMU 13 the adjacent strip of land between the OBG and the New River. Ms. Curley provided the citizen attendee with her copy of the handbook. Mr. McKenna and Mr. Weissbart addressed the question of the two units. The meeting ended at approximately 8:30 and was followed by a poster session. The agenda and presentation slides are available at the links below:
