Project Announcement: Evaluation of DoD Compliance at Active Sites Conducting Open Burning or Open Detonation of Excess Conventional Ammunition and Explosives in the U.S. and Its Territories


We plan to begin the subject evaluation in August 2018. The project was initiated by Congressional request. Our objective is to evaluate DoD compliance with relevant environmental and related laws, inter-agency and municipal agreements, and policy at sites where DoD conducts or conducted open burning of excess conventional ammunition and explosives at locations in the United States and its Territories. We will also evaluate DoD oversight of contractors performing open burning at those sites.
