Other Local Initiatives
Oak Ridge Environmental Quality Advisory Board (EQAB). An official
board of the City of Oak Ridge, EQAB's members are appointed by the City
Council, and the board, in turn, advises the City Council on environmental
issues. Because the ORR is within the city limits of Oak Ridge, one of EQAB's
primary functions is to review and comment on DOE cleanup activities that
potentially will affect the city. EQAB's Web site is found at
http://orservOl.ci. oak-ridge. tn. us/eqab.
Roane County Environmental Review Board. Members of this official
Roane County governmental board are appointed by the county executive and
confirmed by the County Commission. The board advises both the executive and
the commission on environmental matters, including those resulting from the
presence of two major ORR facilities in the County-ORNL and ETTP. Roane
County continues to attract commercial waste management firms interested in
doing business with DOE and outside clients. In addition, three incinerators on
or near the ORR lie within county boundaries. The east end of Roane County
will have a variety of DOE-related cleanup, waste management, and transporta-
tion issues to monitor for years to come.
League of Women Voters of Oak Ridge. The League of Women Voters pro-
motes political responsibility through informed and active participation of citi-
zens in their government. The Oak Ridge chapter, formed in 1946, participates in
meetings regarding DOE's EM activities and budget process. The organization
also provides outreach on Reservation and other local environmental issues via
its semi-monthly "Lunch with the League" program and monthly newsletter
"Voter." The League of Women Voters of Oak Ridge may be found on the
Internet at http://usericx.net/ brooks/lwvorhtml.
Oak Ridge Site Specific Advisory Board (ORSSAB). ORSSAB is an advi-
sory committee to DOE's Environmental Management organization and is char-
tered under the Federal Advisory Committees Act.
