Community Advisory Group (CAG)

In June 2005 a community advisory group or CAG was established for the Richmond Southeast Shoreline Area (RSSA) sites undergoing investigation and cleanup activities with Department of Toxics Substances Control (DTSC) regulatory oversight, including the Zeneca site (former Stauffer Chemical Plant), the Richmond Field Station, Marina Bay, BioRad, and PG&E.

The make-up and purpose of a RSSA CAG as described in the DTSC CAG Fact Sheet is the following:

"A community advisory group or CAG is a group of volunteer individuals who represent the composition, diversity and interest of the local community. The CAG provides an opportunity for all affected and interested community members to openly learn, discuss and provide advice to DTSC regarding cleanup activities at sites that have DTSC regulatory oversight."

The RFS CAG staff representative is Maggie Lazar. Maggie can be reached by email at or by telephone at (510) 665-3562.
