PEASE RESTORATION ADVISORY BOARD

Appointment to Pease Restoration Advisory Board

I'm pleased to announce that I've been appointed to the Pease Restoration Advisory Board. The Board, or RAB is a stakeholder group that meets regularly to discuss environmental restoration at a specific property that is currently or was formerly owned by the Department of Defense, or DOD, where the DOD oversees the environmental restoration process, in this case the former Pease Air Force Base.

The Air Force is committed to working in accordance with all regulatory requirements to investigate and, eventually if necessary, to remediate PFOS/PFOA in the groundwater at the former Pease AFB. The Air Force is currently conducting mitigation efforts under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) in response to an adminstrative Order that was issued by the USEPA in August 2015.

Below, I've posted the latest Seacoast Online coverage of the meeting held on March 13.

The mitigation efforts are extensive and have been covered by Seacoast Online.
