This group is comprised of representatives of various communities of interest served by the DTSC. (A community of interest is not a geographic body, but is based on the interest stakeholders have in a site or issue). These include environmental groups, representatives from Industry, individuals from local communities, and others who want to share their thoughts and ideas on how DTSC operates.
The External Advisory Group was originally formed in 1999 by the DTSC Director in an effort to provide a forum to representatives of the various constituencies of the Department.
This Group meets quarterly to provide a vetting opportunity for new Department ideas and approaches and to offer ideas and recommendations to the director from their community constituents.
