Abstract:

The Training Range Environmental Evaluation and Characterization System TREECS was developed for Army firing and training ranges. TREECS contains varying levels of capability to forecast the fate and risk of munitions constituents MC, such as metals and high explosives HE, located within firing and training ranges and transported to surface water and groundwater. The overall purpose of TREECS is to provide environmental specialists with tools to assess the potential for MC migration into surface water and groundwater systems and to assess military range management strategies to ensure protection of human health and the environment. TREECS can be used to assess best management practices BMPs for military ranges to avoid, reduce, and remediate MC concentrations in receiving waters. New modules for simulating the effectiveness of BMPs have been developed for future implementation into TREECS . This report documents the final mathematical formulations, model implementation protocols, and input requirements of these modules.
