Environmental Restoration

Sixmile Lake Drum Removal ProjectThe Environmental Restoration Section is responsible for cleaning up contamination from past operations by reducing risks to human health and the environment. The section manages the Environmental Restoration Program, Military Munitions Response Program and Contaminated Sites Program. Responsibilities include:
  • Identification and characterization of contaminated sites
  • Planning, programming and budgeting of cleanup projects
  • Cradle-to-grave management of restoration activities
  • Contract oversight
  • Interface with EPA and State representatives regarding cleanup of contaminated sites.

The Community Environmental Board was formed to provide information exchange between the community and the base. With the merger of Elmendorf AFB and Fort Richardson, the board has transitioned to become the Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson Community Environmental Board. The board will resume semi-annual meetings, which are open to the public, once COVID-19 public health guidance allows.
