Environmental Management Division


The Environmental Management Division (EMD) focuses on four major areas: compliance, restoration, prevention, and conservation. The EMD provides the necessary means to meet the Army's environmental mission while protecting the environment and utilizing an integrated environmental training platform. Protection and preservation of the environment will help Fort Lee to remain a major Army asset with the flexibility to meet future mission needs.

Fort Lee EMD provides access to Environmental Management System (EMS) policies, procedures, and related environmental documentation that apply to the operations of the installation. They assist in supporting and communicating EMS initiatives and Policy 07-05 Mission Intgrated/Environmental Management System (MI/EMS) throughout the installation.

EMD conforms to the requirements of the International Standards Organization (ISO) 14001 Environmental Management Standard and Army EMS requirements always assuring that Fort Lee maintains a high state of environmental readiness.

Environmental Special Conditions

As part of National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) support, the Environmental Management Division is involved in all aspects of project review and implementation by participating and supplying detailed regulatory environmental requirements for the decision making in the many functions occurring in support of the Fort Lee Missions. Fort Lee's Environmental Special Conditions Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) contains information to be included in contract specification documents to ensure that requirements for federal construction projects are met on the Installation.

The Environmental Management Division ensures Compliance with environmental laws and special conditions, promotes Pollution Prevention, and protects the priceless Natural Resources and Cultural Resources on Fort Lee. By "Protecting the Land We Defend," the EMD supports the Army's long-range vision and current goals for Sustainability. Army Green is Army Strong!

Protecting The Land We Defend

Nearly all actions have impacts. When referencing the Army, EMD's responsibility is to provide Army decsision makers with the most up-to-date regulatory requirements for project implementation.

  Additional duties include designing outreach programs, finding new ways to utilize technology and offering solutions to minimize the impacts of mission training.

The new Army Strategy for the Environment: Sustain the Mission – Secure the Future establishes a long-range vision that enables the Army to meet its mission today and into the future. Sustainability is the foundation for this Strategy and a paradigm that focuses our thinking in a way that addresses both present and future needs while strengthening community partnerships that improve our ability to organize, equip, train, and deploy our Soldiers as part of the joint force.

Pollution Prevention (P2)

Pollution prevention (P2) is a comprehensive initiative to reduce and prevent pollution at the source. It focuses on conservation of resources, replacement of hazardous materials with less hazardous materials, waste reduction, recycling, and other preventive means to successfully and cost effectively avoid, prevent, or reduce the generation of pollutants. The P2 program has three significant impacts on Fort Lee. First, it helps reduce our environmental compliance burden by minimizing the applicability of requirements imposed by environmental laws and regulations. Second, successful P2 projects help reduce operational costs. Third, the P2 program is fundamental in reducing waste and the generation of pollution. The approach in which we integrate P2 is through the Fort Lee Mission Integration Environmental Management System.

As one of the pillars of the Environmental Management Division, the Conservation Branch oversees the preservation and management of Fort Lee’s Natural and Cultural Resources. Elements of these resources form the most visible and abundant of the installation’s environmental constraints. This ties the Conservation Team to every aspect of Fort Lee’s planning and mission objectives. These two programs work in concert to retain the installation’s natural and cultural heritage together with supporting the military mission.

The Compliance Program is one of the four pillars that support the Army’s Environmental Stewardship mission. Simply stated, the Compliance Program ensures that operations and activities conducted on and by Fort Lee and the Army in general meet the requirements of federal, state, and local environmental regulations are obeyed, and strives to exceed those requirements whenever possible. The Compliance Program must deal with a diverse spectrum of regulations that cover all facets of the environment (air, water, soil), and to that end the Program is divided into Branches with individual program managers and their teams, focused on areas that have the highest risk of impact to natural resources and regulatory oversight.
