Abstract : This is a summary of the Energy Engineering Analysis for the Milan Army Ammunition Plant (MAAP) in Milan, Tennessee. It includes the recommendations for the development of a Basewide Energy Plan consisting of energy conservation projects and other recommendations for reduction of the installation's 1985 source energy consumption. Milan Army Ammunition Plant, containing 22,541 acres, is situated in both Gibson and Carroll Counties, Tennessee, and is approximately equally divided longitudinally into the two counties. Milan, Tennessee, is 5 miles west and has a population of 8,100; Humboldt is 17 miles southwest with a population of 10,200; Trenton is 18 miles northwest with a population of 4,600; and Jackson is 28 miles south with a population of 49,100. The Mississippi River is approxiniately 55 miles west of the plant, the Tennessee River 45 miles east. Milan Army Ammunition Plant and the surrounding area is gently rolling terrain. The elevation of the plant varies from a high of approximately 590 feet on the south side, to a low of approximately 320 feet on the north boundary of the reservation. The Milan area experiences typically short mild winters and long warm summers. With the exception of a few modernized facilities, the overwhelming majority of buildings at MAAP were constructed for World War II ammunition production.
