regulatory community to obtain less restrictive, but safe, regulatory practices that allow for more efficient closure operations.

Finding 8. Through the Citizens Advisory Commission, Outreach Office, and other forums, the Army has created a successful public participation program. The Army and community have not developed a plan for community involvement during closure.

Recommendation 8. The Army should discuss with the Citizens Advisory Commission ways to establish a continuing, constructive public involvement between the end of demilitarization and formal closure.

Finding 9. A comprehensive Lessons Learned program for operations has been implemented by Tooele Chemical Agent Disposal Facility (TOCDF) management, and is also being applied to the TOCDF and the Chemical Agent Munitions Disposal System closure. For example, a comprehensive worker retention program for use during closure operations is in place.
