Joint Base Andrews Environmental Restoration Program
Historical methods of hazardous waste disposal at Air Force sites across the country have created a legacy of environmental impacts. The Environmental Restoration Program was established to identify, assess, investigate, and clean up existing contamination on the base. The process is based on the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act, as well as the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Contingency Plan.
Joint Base Andrews was listed on the National Priorities List in 1999, which spurred on major changes in the manner in which Andrews pursues environmental restoration. Andrews is pursuing a comprehensive approach to restoring affected areas and ensuring beneficial reuse of natural resources. The Andrews Restoration team works closely with its regulatory partners, consisting of the US EPA, Maryland Department of Environment, and the Prince George's County Health Department, to achieve its goals. Scientists and engineers are using innovative and cost-effective strategies to remediate contamination from petroleum and a variety of hazardous substances.
