Abstract:

Watervliet Arsenal WVA and the U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratory CERL developed the Environmental Management Information System EMIS to supply the missing connections to the stand-alone systems already in place and in use. EMIS is an automated tracking system designed to provide cradle-to-grave tracking of hazardous materials and their chemical constituents. EMIS gathers environmental information throughout WVA and provides this information to compliance officers, to the plant floor, and to operations and alarm personnel when compliance is exceeded. The system can generate reports to meet all regulatory requirements and to assist in the centralized management of all environmental issues at WVA.
