The next meeting of the Calverton Restoration Advisory Board will be held virtually on Tuesday, Nov. 9.

Representatives of the Navy and its contractor, Tetra-Tech, will provide the public with an update on the progress of environmental restoration and remediation at the former Naval Weapons Industrial Reserve Plant, which was operated by Northrop Grumman (formerly Grumman Aerospace) for nearly five decades.

Topics for discussion will include volatile organic compounds, 1,4 Dioxane and Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances, according to an agenda published by the Navy.

The Calverton Restoration Advisory Board was established in 1997 to facilitate communication between the community and the Navy regarding the cleanup and restoration of the 2,900-acre site where Grumman manufactured and tested military aircraft and equipment and also conducted firefighting training activities.

Tuesday’s meeting will begin at 6:15 p.m.
