The increasing awareness of environmental contamination and threats to human health from hazardous waste has prompted Congress to pass comprehensive legislation that calls for rigorous management of hazardous waste activities. To assist the Army in complying with the reporting requirements of numerous regulations, the U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratory USA- CERL compiled and analyzed the Federal, State, Department of Defense, and Army hazardous waste regulations. This analysis defined the hazardous waste data already available to Army environmental personnel. The analysis also defined the additional information needed to improve the Army hazardous waste management programs. The results were then used to develop the concept for a hazardous waste component for the Army Environmental Data Management System AEDMS.
