Hill's RAB consists of 24 people representing local communities; federal, state, county and city governments; local sewer and water districts; civic, business and environmental groups, the Air Force, and other interested parties.

RAB meetings are open to the public and advertised in local newspapers and on this website. The RAB brings the following to the cleanup process:
  • The RAB selects its own members.
  • The RAB holds regular meetings, setting the agenda, meeting times, and locations. RAB members are asked to review and comment on draft documents and reports.
  • The RAB creates its own mission statement and operating procedures.
  • The RAB is co-chaired by a representative of the community and a representative of the Air Force.
As its name suggests, the RAB is an advisory board, not a policy-making board. According to Superfund law, the Air Force holds the ultimate responsibility for making decisions regarding the cleanup. However, the RAB will not be without influence. Because the community will be involved early in the cleanup process through the RAB, the communities' concerns will be understood early. As progress is made toward a cleanup proposal, many of the communities' concerns will have already been addressed, making the final proposal more of a cooperative effort.

Environmental cleanup is taking place at Hill Air Force Base and in several surrounding communities:
  • Clearfield
  • Clinton
  • Layton
  • Riverdale
  • Roy
  • South Weber
  • Sunset
Detailed information about each of these sites can be viewed by selecting the "Cleanup Sites" item on the left side of this page.

RAB Seek Volunteers for Four Community Positions. The Hill AFB Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) is asking residents from Clearfield, Hill AFB, Layton and Roy that are interested in volunteering on the RAB to submit applications online. The four positions on the RAB were opened to new applicants once the current RAB members either moved out of the area or decided to let their terms expire at the end of the year. The RAB appreciates the service of the former RAB representatives for these positions: Lauren Johnson (Clearfield Community), Jerry Everett (Layton Community) and Clint Holm (Hill AFB Community). We encourage those that live or work in these communities to apply online by clicking the link below. Applications must be received by Jan. 24, 2014. The RAB will review the applications received and will select the new representative at the Jan. 30 RAB meeting. For more information about the RAB, or to request an application, call Carly Brown, (801) 775-6760, or Barbara Fisher, (801) 775-3652. Click to view
