tactical vehicle washracks at active Army, Army Reserve, and Army National Guard facilities. The vast majority of these separators are used as pretreatment prior to discharge of waste wash water into a sanitary or industrial sewer. Exist-ing Army separators are typically below ground, cast-in-place concrete, simple gravity-type separators. This Chapter explores military waste issues. It focuses on the issues associated with the United States Army from existing military facilities and from base camp operations.   Infact, top military bases in the Western world, like Fort Hood and Fort Meade, have an effective strategy to counter the huge amount of solid waste, hazardous waste and other wastes generated at these facilities. Waste management at military bases demands an integrated framework based on the conventional waste management hierarchy of 4Rs. Comply with applicable Federal, state, local, and Army regulations regarding solid waste management and recycling. Achieve waste reduction goals set by the Army, DOD, Federal government, and respective state governments. Characterize the types and amounts of solid waste .

Pollutant means dredged spoil, solid waste, incinerator residue, filter backwash, sewage, garbage, sewage sludge, munitions, chemical wastes, biological materials, radioactive materials (except those regulated under the Atomic Energy Act of , as amended (42 U.S.C. et seq.)), heat, wrecked or discarded equipment, rock, sand, cellar dirt.   Industries that discharge to publicly owned treatment works (POTWs) are regulated by the so-called Pretreatment Regulations. The EPA's General Pretreatment Regulations are promulgated under Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (C.F.R.), Part , and the Categorical Pretreatment Regulations are found at 40 C.F.R., Parts through •. Maintenance is one of the Army's top five injury producing activities. While the most serious (fatal) maintenance-related injuries occur when Soldiers are pinned/crushed between or under vehicles or equipment, burned during fuel handling operations, or electrocuted while conducting maintenance operations, the majority of maintenance-related injuries occur when Soldiers. Department of the Army and MACOMs are responsible for resourcing the Army to train. The Institutional Army, including schools, training centers, and NCO academies, for example, train soldiers and leaders to take their place in units in the Army by teaching the doctrine .

Maintenance is critical for all aircraft weapon platforms, systems, subsystems, and aviation ground support equipment. The failure of an operating aircraft system or subsystem, resulting from improper maintenance procedures, can have catastrophic and deadly consequences to personnel and equipment. Aviation. 52 Army Sustainment September–October 53 Redefining the Future of Tactical Equipment Maintenance Facilities by naDia abou-el-seouD anD lieutenant colonel ravin hoWell, usa (ret.) The Army is developing new multifunctional maintenance complexes to meet the demands of the 21st century. A pressing and rigorous task has been given to. The mission of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is to deliver vital public and military engineering services; partnering in peace and war to strengthen our nation’s security, energize the economy and reduce risks from disasters.   Working with the Army field support brigades and LRCs, the DMC provides an end-to-end capability to deliver equipment from the national industrial base to tactical units located across the globe.
