7.19 Environmental Compliance Assessments
A. DoD facilities engage in many operations and activities that can cause environmental
impacts on public health and the environment if not properly managed. Many of these activities
are regulated by Federal, state, and local regulations and by DoD component regulations and
policies. To assist in identifying areas that need correction, an environmental assessment
checklist approach is recommended. This approach provides a systematic procedure for
identifying all of the processes on an installation that may present a potential environmental
impact and it provides a method of program assessment by higher headquarters during
environmental compliance audits.
B. The US Army Corps of Engineers Construction Engineering Research Lab, Champaign, IL,
in cooperation with DoD components has developed a comprehensive Environmental
Assessment and Management (TEAM) Guide. This publication combines Code of Federal
Regulations and management practices into checklists that show legal requirements and the
specific operations or items to review. This publication can serve as a guide to facilities
developing environmental assessment checklists. The guide is divided into 13 sections that
correspond to major compliance categories.
1. Air Emissions Management
