DoD Environmental Quality Mission and Challenges

The Department of Defense’s Environmental Quality Research, Development, Testing, and Evaluation (EQ RDT&E) program is based on four requirements that constitute the pillars of DoD’s environmental security mission. DoD is required to:

(1) Cleanup hazardous wastes resulting from past practices at active, formerly used, and tobe- closed military sites;

(2) Comply with laws by controlling hazardous emissions from its systems and operations;

(3) Prevent pollution through substitutions of materials and processes to significantly reduce or eliminate the generation of pollutants; and

(4) Conserve natural and cultural resources through proper stewardship and management.
