Abstract : The Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren Laboratory (NSWCDL) was required to conduct a Range Condition Assessment (RCA), which was the first phase of the Range Sustainability Environmental Program Assessment (RSEPA) process developed by the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) N45. The purpose of RSEPA was to support sustainment of Navy test and training ranges by assessing and managing the present environmental condition of each land-based range under the Navy's control. Knowledge of range-specific environmental conditions helps managers make informed decisions and reduces the overall planning required for Navy operational activities. In addition, awareness of range environmental conditions helps managers better understand appropriate measures to implement to ensure compliance with environmental laws and regulations.
