- Air Pollution
- Air Quality Management. U.S. Air Force, Center for Environmental Excellence, The commitment of the U.S. Air Force Air Quality Program is to protect public health, our workforce, and the environment from harmful pollutants while sustaining the war fighter mission. This task not only involves reporting of air pollutants from base sources but implementing innovative technologies to prevent or reduce emissions.
- Storm Water
- DoD Implementation of Storm Water Requirements under Section 438 of the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA), DoD, Office of the Under Secretary for Defense, January 19, 2010., The overall design objective for each project is to maintain predevelopment hydrology and prevent any net increase in storm water runoff. DoD defines “predevelopment hydrology” as the pre-project hydrologic conditions of temperature, rate, volume, and duration of storm water flow from the project site. The analysis of the predevelopment hydrology must include site-specific factors (such as soil type, ground cover, and ground slope) and use modeling or other recognized tools to establish the design objective for the water volume to be managed from the project site.
Roof Runoff Best Management Practice (BMP) at Building V-88, Norfolk Naval Base. Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), Engineering Service Center, NAVFAC ESC designed, built, and tested an innovative storm water treatment system designed to remove heavy metal pollutants released from the roofs of Navy industrial buildings. Installed at building downspouts, the system consists of a tank packed with bone char and ferrous-coated activated alumina.
- Perchlorate Release Management Policy - DoD Memorandum - April 22, 2009, This memorandum updates policy on management of perchlorate releases at DoD installations, including operational ranges and Government Owned-Contractor Operated (GOCO) facilities, Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) sites, and Formerly Used Defense Sites (FUDS) in the United States.
