Abstract:

Regulatory and legislative requirements of Federal and state pollution control acts such as Public Law 92-500, the Clean Air Act, and the Solid Waste Management Act require Army installations to constrain the effluents of their operations within prescribed limits of quality. The Pollution Abatement Management System PAMS will help the facility engineer, Army Major Commands MACOMs, and headquarters environmental offices implement these requirements by providing manual and computer-assisted procedures to 1 determine the most cost-effective, site applicable, energy-conservative solutions for bringing air, water, and solid waste emissions from Army operations into compliance with Federal, state, and Army standards using existing technology and commercial developments wherever possible 2 monitor the scheduled progress in meeting those prescribed Federal, state, and Army standards and 3 identify priority ranking of environmental pollution problems within the Department of the Army. This report formalizes the overall concept development of PAMS and the systems developmental strategy.
