Goals for cleanup are determined on a site-by-site basis. A Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) is a forum comprised of representatives from the Department of Defense (DoD), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), state and local governments, tribal governments, and the affected community.

Local community members interested in creating a RAB should be willing to establish and jointly chair the RAB and attend all RAB meetings (which could last between two to four hours each) and be willing to devote ample time to review Fort Carson environmental restoration documents within prescribed time frames. For more information or to express your interest in participating in a RAB, please contact the Fort Carson Installation Restoration Office 719-526-8001 between Friday September 10, 2021 and Tuesday October 12, 2021.
