Environmental Projects

The Corps' environmental mission is to serve the nation through superior management, design and execution of a full range of cleanup and protection activities, with a focus on:
  •     Cleaning up sites contaminated with hazardous waste, radioactive waste, or ordnance
  •      Compliance with federal, state, and local environmental laws and regulations 
  •      Striving to minimize our use of hazardous materials 
  •      Conserving our natural and cultural resources

The Corps also has a Civil Works environmental mission that ensures all Corps projects, facilities and associated lands meet environmental standards. The program has four functions: compliance, restoration, prevention and conservation.
