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.
