Pagination or Media Count:
The Defense Environmental Restoration Program DERP was established in 1984 to promote and coordinate efforts for the evaluation and cleanup of contamination at Department of Defense DoD installations. The program currently includes The Installation Restoration Program IRP, where potential contamination at DoD installations and formerly owned or used properties is investigated and, as necessary, site cleanups are conducted and Other Hazardous Waste OHW Operations, through which research, development, and demonstration programs aimed at improving remediation technology and reducing DoD waste generation rates are conducted. In addition, a small number of Building Demolition and Debris Removal BDDR projects were conducted under DERP in fiscal year FY 1991. These involved demolishing and structures at DoD installations and formerly used properties. FY 1991 marked the first time any BDDR projects had been conducted under DERP since FY 1987.
