Subpart J—Environmental Pollution Prevention, Control, and Abatement Report (RCS DD-I&L (SA) 1383)
§ 650.231 Purpose.
(a) This chapter provides reporting procedures to be followed within the Department of the Army to control environmental pollution from existing facilities as contained in section 3(a) (3) Executive Order 11752 of December 17, 1973, entitled, “Prevention, Control and Abatement of Environmental Pollution at Federal Facilities.” This section of the Executive Order provides that “Heads of Federal agencies shall, with regard to all facilities under their jurisdiction in the United States: * * *. (3) Present to the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), annually, a plan to provide for such improvement in the design, construction, management, operation, and maintenance of existing facilities as may be necessary to meet applicable standards specified * * *”

(b) The report described herein will be the principal mechanism for identifying pollution control projects and those resources needed to effectively execute installation and major command Environmental Programs. Properly defined information presented in this report can be used as a basis for necessary programing and budget actions by DA and major commands.

(c) These instruction implement OMB Circular A-106, dated 31 Dec 74, which supersedes OMB Circular A-78 and A-81, dated 18 May 70.

§ 650.232 Explanation of terms.
(a) The terms used herein will be the same as those defined in chapter 1.

(b) The term “project” will mean an action to achieve needed corrective measures relative to identified environmental pollution sources.

(c) The term “cost” will mean the amount of funds required to install the necessary environmental protection measures. These funds include the capital costs of structures and equipment, irrespective of the appropriation chargeable, but not the annual maintenance and operating costs.

§ 650.233 Applicability.
Each active, semiactive and Army Reserve installation operated by or for the Department of the Army, and National Guard facilities/sites supported by Federally appropriated funds in the Continental United States; Alaska and Hawaii, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, the Panama Canal Zone, and the Trust Territories of the Pacific, whether Army-controlled or under jurisdiction of the Army by lease or similar instrument, where environmental protection measures do not meet the current requirements and/or standards established by appropriated Federal, State or local regulatory agencies are to be listed in the Environmental Pollution Control Report. Each installation identifying a new pollution source or environmental protection requirement will report through command channels in accordance with these instructions. Negative report will be rendered by responsible commands in the form of a listing of those installations where remedial measures are not needed to correct a source of pollution or where no additional resources are needed to meet the provisions of this regulation.

§ 650.234 Scope.
(a) The report described herein consists of one exhibit to be prepared at the installation or activity level and two exhibits to be prepared at the major command level. Reports are to be forwarded through channels to HQDA (DAEN-FEU) WASH, DC 20314, by November 15, and May 15, of each year. The exhibits will reflect information as of October 20, and April 20.

(b) Exhibit 1 is entitled—Proposed Project Report. Separate Exhibits will be prepared for each project or activity on an installation in each of the following categories:

(1) Air pollution.

(2) Water pollution.

(3) Solid waste pollution.

(4) Radiation pollution.

(5) Noise pollution.

(6) Pesticide and hazardous/toxic materials pollution.

(7) Environmental management.

(c) Exhibit 2 is entitled—Status Report. It indicates the amount programed, appropriated, or funded; the current working estimate (CWE); and the status of each active project. Separate exhibits will be completed by the major commands for each category or projects (i.e., air, water, noise, solid waste, etc.). After the initial report, marked-up copies of the ADP printout giving an update on all previously reported projects is all that is necessary. The ADP printout to be used for this purpose will be provided by HQDA (DAEN-FEU) WASH, DC 20314.

(d) Exhibit 3 is entitled—Narrative report. Major commands will provide a short explanation of the objectives that will be achieved, the elements of their environmental program that will be given particular emphasis over the short term, and the extent that statutory pollution control requirements and DA environmental goals and objectives will be satisfied by executing the projects or actions listed in the report. For any specific portion of the program that requires more than 12 months to complete, an identification of the major milestones for accomplishing the various actions are also to be included.

§ 650.235 Responsibilities.
(a) Department of the Army Staff. (1) The Chief of Engineers will compile the overall DA report based on submissions from major commands and the National Guard Bureau.

(2) The Chief, Army Reserve will monitor those reports by the major commands to ensure that Reserve installations for which they provide logistic support are included in the Pollution Control Report.

(3) The Chief, National Guard Bureau will submit a report to the Chief of Engineers including those projects for National Guard sites or installations which are supported by federally appropriated funds.

(b) Major commands. (1) Major commands controlling installations or activities, or providing logistical support to Reserve installations in the United States, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Canal Zone, Guam, American Samoa, Virgin Islands and the Trust Territories will submit reports in accordance with this regulation.

(2) Major commands controlling installations or activities in overseas areas will submit reports identifying pollution abatement projects required for compliance with host nation regulations, international or Status of Forces Agreements.

Instructions for the Preparation and Submission of Exhibits
§ 650.236 Exhibit 1—Proposed Project.
(a) An Exhibit 1 will be prepared and maintained current for all known pollution control projects using the format in Figure 10–1 and for valid environmental protection resource requirements using the format in Figure 10–2. Exhibit 1's previously submitted on air and water pollution control projects which are still valid, but not yet completed, do not have to be resubmitted in the new format except when a significant change takes place to make the earlier Exhibit 1 obsolete. Exhibit 1's are not required for completed projects.

(b) Exhibit 1's for new or revised projects or requirements will be submitted semi-annually by November 15, and May 15, of each year to DAEN-FEU based on the latest information as of 30 days prior to the above reporting dates.

(c) Each project will be identified as to the category of pollution control needed (i.e., air, water, solid waste, radiation, noise, pesticides, and environmental management). Projects within a category will be assigned consecutive numbers by DAEN-FEU beginning with “1.” Project numbers are for permanent identification and may not be reassigned to new projects. Existing air and water pollution control projects previously numbered under RCS DD-I&L(SA) 1383 are to be continued under their originally assigned numbers. These project numbers apply strictly to this report and are not to be confused with or to replace programing line-item numbers.

(d) Each project at the same installation required for a distinct and separate purpose is to be considered a separate project. Separate projects will be reported individually using the project number assigned by DAEN-FEU.

(e) Every item in Figures 10–1 or 10–2 is to be completed for each project. Where no entry is appropriate, enter NA (Not applicable). A specific effort must be made by the installation to obtain any information not immediately on hand.

(f) The following will be reported as other relevant information:

(1) Item 10 of Exhibit 1 will include information not shown elsewhere on the exhibit which is necessary for the evaluation of the project. For example, where the command knows of changing circumstances which will affect the practicability of undertaking a project at a particular facility (e.g., replacement of a facility or a change in installation mission which would alter control needs), these changes are to be stated. If a project is discontinued, state in this item the reasons and circumstances, if any, which might lead to a re-activation of the projects (e.g., plant is put in layaway; re-activation would be based on further troop strength increase or mobilization requirements).

(2) For facilities leased by the Army which are subject to the provisions of this regulation, describe under Item 10 the lease arrangements that would affect the requirements for control measures for such facilities. Such projects will be included in Exhibit 2 with a reference in the margin to the explanation given on Exhibit 1.

(3) If a project proposed in one environmental category is likely to generate pollution of other types, Item 10 is to include a brief description and how it is to be controlled.

(4) Citations or other forms of litigation by regulatory agencies or other official entities will be reported under Item 10.

(g) Enter in Item 11, Figure 10–1 or Item 5, Figure 10–2 known or estimated funding requirements by appropriation account (OMA, MCA, etc.). (This source of project and cost data can be helpful to major commands in the development of annual budget requests to support their environmental program.)

(iv) Item 4. List only those items which are quantifiable, such as number of personnel required, special equipment items, school courses, man-year requirements for studies, etc. by fiscal year.

(v) Item 5. Cite one-time costs or 5- year projected costs by appropriation as applicable.

(vi) Item 6. List other relevant information and specify. (See figure 10–9 and §650.236(f).)

(h) Sample Exhibits—Examples of Exhibit 1's for each of the media are shown in figures 10–3 through 10–9.

§ 650.237 Exhibit 2—Status Report.
(a) Exhibit 2 is a command report which provides a financial summary of the projects in the program and their status. A separate Exhibit 2 is required for each media or category of projects (i.e., air, water, noise, solid waste, etc.) and will be submitted semi-annually along with Exhibit 1's on November 15, and May 15 of each year.

(b) Exhibit 2 will include all active projects plus those completed or discontinued subsequent to the submission of the previous report. Once a project is reported as completed or discontinued, it will be dropped from the report. The May 15 report will contain all projects which the command will submit in the next fiscal year budget. In addition, the November 15 report will reflect congressional appropriation action taken on the prior fiscal year budget.

(c) The initial Exhibit 2's for each media will be prepared by the reporting command using the format in Figure 10–10. Subsequent reports will be only an update of the previous command report. As each Exhibit 2 is received from a command, it will be converted to an ADP printout and returned to the reporting command by DAEN-FEU in 45–60 days for use in the next report update. The following updating procedures will be observed:

(1) One copy of a marked-up printout of the previous Exhibit 2 will accompany the semi-annual report.

(2) Corrections, changes and additions will be made neatly with a RED marking pen.

(3) An asterisk in the left margin will be used to identify projects which have been completed, discontinued or changed.

(4) New projects will be added to the bottom of the appropriate media printout.

(5) Exhibit 2's submitted on May 15 will contain the amount included or proposed to be included in the President's budget for each project, or the amount actually appropriated or funded.

(6) Major Command updating will be done only for non-MCA funded projects. MCA funded project status will be updated by DAEN-FEU.

(7) Each revision of Exhibit 2 will reflect the information as of October 20 and April 20, as appropriate.

(8) Funding totals by appropriation type for each fiscal year and for each media reported will be provided at the bottom of the last page.

(9) Current and relevant information will be presented in the “Status” column using the following format:

(i) Indicate “PP—” if the project is in the preliminary planning stage. The blank provided should contain the estimated completion date for construction.

(ii) Indicate “DES—” if the project is under design or has been designed, but is not under construction. The blank provided should contain the estimated completion date for construction and not the completion date of design.

(iii) Indicate “CON—” if the project is under construction. The blank provided should contain the estimated completion date.

(iv) Indicate “CPL—” if the project has been completed. The blank provided should contain the actual completion date.

(v) Indicate “DIS” if the project has been discontinued or dropped. Reasons should be given.

(vi) Indicate “DEF” if the project has been deferred or significantly delayed. Reasons for and what corrective actions taken, if any, should be given.

(vii) Indicate “OTH” if other than the above circumstances apply. An explanation should be given.

§ 650.238 Exhibit 3—Narrative Report.
(a) The narrative report will be a brief summary of the command environmental program. No specific format is prescribed; however, it will contain the following:

(1) Financial displays for the current FYDP period by appropriation account (MCA, PA, OMA, etc.) and by program media (air, water, noise, etc.). The elements of the program presented in the Exhibit 1–EM are to be aggregated by management activity to identify funding requirements for training, preparation of EIA/EIS, environmental surveys and studies, personnel costs, etc.

(2) An explanation of the environmental objectives to be achieved by completing the projects reported or funding those activities contained in Exhibit 1's. For any specific portion of the program that requires more than 12 months to complete, identify the major milestones for accomplishing the actions.

(3) Elements of the command program that will be given particular emphasis over the short term.

(4) Projection of when statutory pollution control requirements, Federal or state, will be satisfied by the various elements of a command.

(5) Summary of potential or pending environmental litigation involving installations within the command.

(6) Explanation of anticipated problem areas requiring DA assistance.

(b) The content of the narrative report is basically a forecast of how the major command intends to accomplish its environmental program during the succeeding 12 months. This requirement should not be confused with the requirement for the annual status report (RCS DD-I&L(A) 1269), specified in §650.9 of subpart A of this part of this regulation, which is an annual summary of environmental protection accomplishments for the specified preceding calendar year.
