Restoration Advisory Board for the Bradford Island National Priorities List Site

The Department of the Army recognizes the importance of public and stakeholder participation in USACE Comprehensive Environmental Response and Liability Act (CERCLA) response actions. Portland District created a Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) to improve public participation by involving the community and tribal nations in the environmental cleanup at the Bradford Island National Priorities List (NPL) site. 

The RAB integrates public participation by involving the community in the restoration decision-making process. The RAB establishes and maintains a forum with stakeholders for the exchange of information in an open and interactive dialogue concerning the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) response activities at the Bradford Island NPL Site. The RAB provides comments and advice to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Portland District, on the proposed response activities. Additionally, they serve as liaisons between the Corps and the community. Board meetings are always open to the public.
