    For years, the base served its purpose until, in , it landed on a decommission list. The military decamped, dismantling and cleanup began, and a few years later some former Navy housing was turned into city-subsidized rentals. By , the Navy was well into the process of preparing the land for full transfer to civilian control.

Particularly serious contamination of the environment occurred at the former Soviet air bases. A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Environmental remediation and its assessment examples for the Hanford, Los Alamos and Chernobyl cases were presented.

Some remediation technologies and administrative control are applicable to the Fukushima nuclear accident’s environmental remediation Remediation strategic planning with a web-based comprehensive remediation distribution maps. The actual and potential human health and environmental effects of exposure to MEC or munitions constituents can vary from localized to widespread.

Besides the obvious danger of exploding UXO, harm can also result when humans and the environment are exposed to chemical warfare agents or other hazardous substances used in munitions. During the past several years, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has made a significant commitment to support the development of a Department of Defense (DoD) Range Rule.

We have also supported numerous related DoD efforts, including the Range Rule Risk Methodology and the Military Munitions Dialogue. As part of its mission to protect human health and the environment, the U.S.

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA or “the Agency”) is dedicated to developing and promoting innovative cleanup strategies that restore contaminated sites to productive use, reduce associated costs, and promote environmental stewardship.

Green remediation is the practice of considering all environmental effects of remedy implementation and incorporating options to maximize net environmental benefit of cleanup actions. This primer outlines the principles of green remediation and describes opportunities to reduce the footprint of cleanup activities throughout the life of a project.

Guideline for Contaminated Site Remediation 1 Introduction In the Northwest Territories (NWT) and across Canada, contaminated sites pose a threat to human health and the environment. In some cases the concern may also be financial, because of the loss of equity and the cost of remediating the Size: KB.

At current and former U.S. military bases, the contamination is so severe that they have been designated Superfund sites by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, meaning they are among the most hazardous areas in the country requiring cleanup.

contamination of military bases is often extensive, the remediation of this contamination, which must be done before closed bases are transferred to public or private entities, may threaten or delay the transfer and redevelopment of the base.

Hazardous Wastes on Military Bases: the Norton Problem For decades, the different branches of. The 5-year review is a comprehensive "audit" of all the cleanup programs at the former base. It not only reviews the effectiveness of the cleanup action, but it also reviews the current knowledge about the contaminants and cleanup treatments to ensure the remedy remains protective of human health and the environment.

Environmental Insurance Former or subsequent property owners may purchase insurance for the costs incurred by environmental liability. Insurers, however, can write partial (standard) or absolute pollution exclusions into the environmental insurance policies so that they do not have to cover all or certain costs related to pollution.

Ground Water Contamination, Second Edition is a thorough update to the leading book on groundwater contamination and remediation for scientists and engineers. Written from both a theoretical and practical viewpoint, this edition focuses on the critical new challenges facing professionals seeking to prevent, mitigate, or remediate groundwater Cited by: Environmental Insurance is Helping Spur Redevelopment on Former Military Bases, Said Industry Expert The bustle of activity on many former military bases is far from defense-related, but nevertheless, very risky, an insurance industry expert told members of the National Association of Installation Developers (NAID), meeting here this week.

This is a list of Superfund sites in Washington State designated under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) environmental law.

The CERCLA federal law of authorized the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to create a list of polluted locations requiring a long-term response to clean up hazardous material.

An essential reference for the test and environmental remediation procedures required to put former military sites back in to civilian use (e.g. housing) 30% revision, with key updates concerning regulatory changes, US Dept of Defense guidance documents, use of robotic vehicles, underwater sites and discovery of buried ordnance.

A ubiquitous, largely overlooked groundwater contaminant, 1,4-dioxane escaped notice by almost everyone until the late s. While some dismissed 1,4-dioxane because it was not regulated, others were concerned and required testing and remediation. Some facilities, like Sondrestrom, have become important economic assets to inhabitants of Greenland, a self-governing territory of the Kingdom of Denmark.

But environmental contamination at other former military sites has bred serious tensions among leaders of Greenland’s ethnic Inuit population. Dnestr radar (Russian: Днестр) and Dnepr radar (Russian: Днепр), both known by the NATO reporting name Hen House are the first generation of Soviet space surveillance and early warning radars of this type were built around the periphery of the Soviet Union starting in the s to provide ballistic missile warnings for attacks from different y of origin: Soviet Union, Russia.

Many cases of environmental contamination in former Warsaw Pact, for example, are associated with former Soviet military bases. In Poland, cleanup of several of these bases is under way. In Kluczewo, northwestern Poland, a former military base is reportedly the biggest and most contaminated such site in Central Europe.
