Abstract : The Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) was initiated in 1990 to harness the resources of the defense establishment to minimize or remove any negative environmental impacts associated with Department of Defense's (DoD) primary mission of maintaining military readiness for national defense. SERDP is a cooperative program under the DoD in full partnership with the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency, and with participation by numerous other Federal and non-Federal organizations. SERDP consists of environmental compliance, cleanup, pollution reduction, and conservation programs. Its objectives are to accelerate cost-effective clean up of contaminated defense sites, facilitate full compliance with environmental laws and regulations, enhance training, testing, and operational readiness through prudent conservation measures, and reduce defense industrial waste streams through aggressive pollution prevention. Application of the innovative environmental technologies developed by SERDP should reduce the costs of sustainable environmental and resource management, save the time required to resolve environmental problems, and enhance safety and health.
