Abstract : Environmental Management in the Army is the means of conserving, protecting and restoring our natural and cultural resources while accomplishing the military mission. Proper environmental management and coordination at the installation is not only necessary to comply with Federal, state, local and host nation regulations, it also benefits your overall mission by preventing time delays or operational shutdowns and improving public relations. An environmental program should consist of four general components: (1) Current operations, such as waste water discharge, sewage treatment, noise pollution abatement, air quality attainment, or hazardous waste/materials management; (2) Remediation of contamination caused by past waste disposal practices; (3) Management, conservation, and restoration of the land itself and those renewable natural resources thereon such as forests, fishes and wildlife as well as any historic or archeological resources; and (4) Environmental impact of future operations and activities through pre-planning.
