Summary
DOD is responsible for managing and caring for thousands of military installations and defense sites throughout the United States and overseas. Its operations are subject to the same environmental, safety, and health laws and regulations as private industry, as well as additional requirements for federal facilities. The day-to-day operations and activities of a typical military installation generally mirror those of a small city. As a result, DOD installations face most of the same environmental problems confronting our nation's industrial and commercial sectors. To achieve its environmental mission, DOD organized its $5 billion environmental program into five elements: cleanup, compliance, conservation, pollution prevention, and technology. This report addresses three of these elements: cleanup (remediation), which includes identification, investigation, and cleanup of contamination from hazardous substances and waste on active and formerly used DOD land (cleanup has been funded primarily through centralized accounts for defense environmental restoration and for BRAC); compliance wIth environmental laws and regulations of federal, state, and local jurisdictions; and local jurisdictions; and technology, under which DOD invests in research, development, demonstration, and validation of new technologies to support the other elements of its program
