The Environmental Restoration Program (ERP) manages the environmental cleanup of all Air Force bases. Past industrial activities have resulted in contamination of the soil and water at Travis AFB.
The ERP is committed to restoring the soil and water to a condition that is protective of human health and the environment as quickly as possible.
The links located in the sidebar to the right provide access to information on our progress as well as connections to the primary environmental regulatory agencies that provide oversight of the Travis AFB ERP.
The Travis ERP staff, with input from three federal and state of California regulatory agencies and the local community, manages the cleanup effort. Prior to 2013, the ERP staff was attached to Travis AFB and was assigned to the 60th Civil Engineer Squadron. As part of the Air Force transformation, the restoration efforts at all Air Force installations were centralized, and the Travis ERP staff is now a part of the Travis Installation Support Section (ISS) and attached to the Air Force Civil Engineer Center (AFCEC) in San Antonio, Texas. Even though the Travis ISS is a tenant organization on Travis AFB, it coordinates all restoration activities with base leadership and various offices to promote soil and groundwater cleanup and support the base mission.
The public is encouraged to participate in the Travis AFB Environmental Restoration Program (ERP); this display of the steps of the Superfund cleanup process shows the opportunities to review restoration documents and provide comments to Air Force officials. Current information on the program can be found by navigating throughout this website. You can learn more about public participation in the Travis ERP via the Travis AFB Community Relations Program Update, which explains how interested community members can access information about environmental cleanup activities at Travis AFB, can express community concerns to base representatives, and can get involved in the decision-making process.
To receive up-to-date information on progress of the ERP, you can get on our mailing list for The Guardian; the Travis AFB Environmental Restoration newsletter that is mailed each quarter to interested community members.
We also send out an electronic version of the newsletter (the E-Guardian) for those with Internet access who want to save paper and get the newsletter sooner. Tell us you want to be added to the mailing list of either the paper or electronic version by emailing us.
One of the best ways to participate is to attend the April Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) meetings and make your opinions known. Below are several important links which will give you more information on the RAB and how to contact the RAB members, as well as a calendar of when public meetings are held.
