This study has been conducted to determine the magnitude and scope of military hazardous waste problems and to identify and assess the DOD hazardous waste management approach and future needs. The study approach is designed to survey the current activities of DOD agencies involved with hazardous waste management operations and associated research and development activities. Discussions were held with over 35 DOD policymakers, command and field managers, and technical experts to determine what they perceived as critical areas and appropriate management strategies. Regulatory issues and current research activities were discussed with Environmental Protection Agency EPA officials. These discussions were supplemented by a review of pertinent reports, memoranda, and regulations. The findings and conclusions are based on a review of DOD hazardous waste policies and a technical assessment of the compiled data. For a more detailed discussion and presentation of our recommendations made in response to these findings, refer to the report sections identified and Chapter 6 Summary Findings and Recommendations.
