Air Force, EPA partner for greener base cleanups
Wednesday - 1/11/2012, 9:31am EST
The Air Force and EPA signed a memorandum of understanding last month to conduct environmental footprint analyses on Air Force installations in the Pacific Southwest Region.
The partnership is a pilot program that could be expanded to other bases, said Timothy Bridges, deputy assistant secretary of the Air Force for Environment, Safety and Occupational Health, in an interview with The Federal Drive with Tom Temin.
"We don't want to take pollution out of the ground and then turn around and put it in the air," Bridges said.
Bridges said the Air Force has its own measurement tool and so does the EPA.
"This is an effort to eliminate, combine or whatever, but to find an efficiency so we're not looking at the same thing through various means," he said.
The analyses will continue through March, Bridges said.
