Abstract : The Defense Environmental Restoration Program (ERP) was established in 1984 to promote and coordinate efforts for the evaluation and cleanup of contamination at Department of Defense (DoD) installations. The program currently includes: (1) The Installation Restoration Program (IRP)m, where potential contamination at DoD installations and formerly used properties is investigated and, as necessary, site clean-ups are conducted; and (2) Other Hazardous Waste (OHW) Operations, through which research, development, and demonstration programs aimed at improving remediation technology and reducing DoD waste generation rates are conducted.
