Seal Beach Restoration Advisory Board

Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach is now accepting Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) applications from local community members.

RABs are citizen panels comprised of representatives from the community, the Navy, and federal, state, and local regulatory agencies. The RAB is intended to bring together community members who reflect the diverse interests within the local area. Prior experience with environmental cleanup activities is not a requirement.  The NWS Seal Beach RAB consists primarily of community members, but also includes representatives from the Navy, California Department of Toxic Substances Control, and the Orange County Regional Water Quality Control Board. This structuring of the RAB enables early and continued two-way flow of the information, concerns, values, and needs between the affected community, the Navy and regulatory agencies. RAB members take an active role in the following activities:
  • Participate in regular meetings
  • Review and provide comments on environmental documents that include remedial investigations, feasibility studies, proposed plans, records of decision, and other cleanup documents
  • Act as liaisons between the Navy and community
  • Participate in information exchanges and site tours
RAB members meet to review and discuss technical documents and plans relating to the environmental studies and cleanup activities at NWS Seal Beach. Committee members serve as liaisons with the community and special interest working groups. All RAB meetings are open to the public. Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command Southwest provides support, and technical assistance is also available to RAB members.
