The rate of adoption and the quality of Environmental Management Systems (EMS) at military facilities requires support and leadership from the highest levels of management, adequate resources to both develop and implement EMS, and an acknowledgement by the military commanders that personnel involved in EMS are an integral, important part of facilities and operations management. Future success will depend on the responsiveness and robustness of the initial systems as well as their enthusiastic acceptance by facility and operations managers. The unifying, universal theme of this book is the effective communication of scientific results in a rapidly changing environment. Specific environmental issues related to operations at military facilities include encroachment on training ranges, implementation of effective EMS, pollution prevention in the military sector, and public participation, especially as this relates to the unique requirements of national security.
