Whiteman AFB conducting community interest assessment


The United States Air Force has been conducting environmental restoration investigations and cleanup/monitoring activities on Environmental Restoration Program sites at Whiteman Air Force Base since the 1980s.

Over the course of these activities, WAFB has afforded the opportunity for interested stakeholders in the community to review progress, participate in a dialogue with, and provide comments and advice to WAFB’s decision-makers concerning ERP matters. The forum for this exchange of information has been through the Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) process.

In accordance with the Department of Defense and Air Force policy, when restoration activities occur at installations and there is no active RAB, installations are required to assess community interest at least every 24 months and document the results and decision in a Memorandum for Record signed by the installation commander.

WAFB encourages the general public to review up-to-date information regarding ERP activities on WAFB at Information Repositories that are maintained at the Trails Regional Library Knob Noster Branch, 202 N. Adams Ave, in Knob Noster, or the WAFB library.

Local community members can express their interest in participating in a Restoration Advisory Board by completing the questionnaire at www.surveymonkey.com/r/S5M537Z by March 31.

Comments may also be provided to the following by April 30:

Mr. Paul E. Takacs, Environmental Restoration Program Manager


709 Ward Drive, Suite 290

Scott AFB, IL 62225




509th Bomb Wing Public Affairs

509 Spirit Blvd.

Whiteman AFB, MO



The community interest results will be published with the final decision on whether to re-establish a Whiteman AFB Restoration Advisory Board, no later than April 30.
