Abstract : Fort McClellan goals are to properly manage resources that are renewable and conserve those that are not. Another goal is to strive to reduce the environmental insult that is so common when man manipulates the natural environment in pursuit of commonly held needs and values. These broad goals have been developed during the maturation stage of our environmental program and have been finely honed into five specific objectives. 1. To provide environmental education to the widest of audiences with the subject matter tailored to the audience; 2. Prevent material from entering the waste stream. Anything entering the waste stream will be recycled if possible; 3. Actively seek a zero-discharge installation and maintain surface water to the same good biological quality as the water entering the installation. 4. Conserve fossil fuel energy to the highest degree possible to reduce the degrading effect of the natural environment. Further, this recognition is vital to a mobile Army whose readiness is intensely fossil field dependent. 5. Preserve the historical character and the cultural resources on Fort McClellan lands.
