Abstract
The purpose of this paper is to take a comprehensive look at the environmental restoration issues surrounding the implementation of the Department of Defense's Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Program. Environmental problems at DoD sites present some unique challenges because environmental priorities must be integrated with the national security missions of each DoD Service. Still environmental hazards must be dealt with before the military bases can be transferred of sold back to the local communities. It is also important for the Federal Government to present a unified picture to the public of a government committed to environmental protection and restoration at it's own facilities at least to the same extent that it is committed to environmental protection at private sites. This paper will examine the statutes and regulations surrounding the environmental cleanups. It will also research the mechanism by which the DoD can best achieve this end and the resources at its disposal for restorations of hazardous/toxic wastes sites at its facilities in the continental U.S. and overseas
