SAN ANTONIO — The Army’s Environmental Restoration Program, more commonly known as the Army Cleanup Program, addresses a variety of hazardous contaminants and military munitions on Army installations across the globe to
bolster readiness. The initiative stemmed from the Defense Environmental Restoration Program, established in 1986 by the Department of Defense.
The mission is to ensure compliance with applicable federal and state environmental regulations, protect human health and the environment, and enable readiness by returning Army lands to usable condition. By performing cost-effective remediation on contaminated sites, cleanup efforts have enabled installations to expand and carry out critical missions.
