July 2, 2012 - 12:00pm


WASHINGTON, D.C. – The eight local boards of the EM Site-Specific Advisory Board (EM SSAB) provided 56 recommendations collectively in 2011, according to a recent assessment of board input into the EM program.

The Board has offered recommendations to the EM sites around the DOE complex championing public participation activities, emphasizing safe disposal of contaminated material and, in some cases, yielding significant taxpayer savings.

“I’ve read through recommendations that were highlighted by site managers and I am impressed by the breadth and significance of the issues that the EM SSAB members tackle,” Senior Advisor for Environmental Management David Huizenga said recently. “The members continue to give EM valuable input on site cleanup decisions, future land use plans and public outreach efforts.”
