Camp Grayling Restoration Advisory Board (RAB): Home

This guide will provide information to interested parties about the issue of polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in the Grayling, Michigan area.

General Information

Welcome to the Camp Grayling Joint Maneuver Training Center Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) website. The purpose of this site is to keep the Grayling community up to date on all RAB activities and informed on the progress of the continuing PFAS investigation.

All information provided below about RABs comes directly from the Department of Defense Restoration Advisory Board Rule Handbook (see link below for document).

The Department of Defense (DoD) encourages community involvement in the environmental restoration process through Restoration Advisory Boards (RABs). Since 1994, RABs have been established at over 300 military installations and properties in the United States and its territories to encourage communities and installations to identify and discuss potential environmental restoration issues. By facilitating open communication and understanding, RABs serve as a forum for discussion among the parties involved in the Defense Environmental Restoration Program (DERP) at affected sites and installations. RABs provide a collaborative forum for the community, government agencies, tribes, and installation decision makers to discuss and identify the most efficient and productive means to restore the environment.
