Environmental Management

Travis Air Force Base is an active military installation that conducts worldwide strategic airlift and air refueling missions.  These missions require proper aircraft and vehicle maintenance, repair, and training activities that comply with federal and State of California environmental laws and regulations.  The Travis AFB Asset Management Flight works with the various squadrons and tenant organizations to ensure environmental compliance is enforced.

The Environmental Compliance website covers the various aspects of proper environmental stewardship.  The Environmental Restoration website covers the cleanup activities that are addressing past contaminant releases.

ERP

Travis Air Force Base hosts a rich eco-system within Solano County. There is an ongoing environmental cleanup program here to reduce the risk of chemical exposure, and protect human health and the environment. This program is called the Environmental Restoration Program (ERP).

Environmental Participation

The public is encouraged to participate in the Travis AFB Environmental Restoration Program. Current information on the program can be found by navigating throughout this website. 

To receive up-to-date information on progress of the ERP, you can get on our mailing list for The Guardian; the Travis AFB Environmental Restoration newsletter that is mailed each quarter to interested community members. 

We also send out an electronic version of the newsletter (the E-Guardian) for those with Internet access who want to save paper and get the newsletter sooner. Tell us you want to be added to the mailing list of either the paper or electronic version by emailing us

One of the best ways to participate is to attend the quarterly Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) meetings and make your opinions known. Below are several important links which will give you more information on the RAB and how to contact the RAB members, as well as a calendar of when public meetings are held.

The next RAB meeting is scheduled for April 18, 2019 at the Office of the Northern Solano County Association of Realtors at 3690 Hilborn Road, Fairfield CA.  If you would like more information or need special accommodations for the RAB meeting, please contact Mr. Lonnie Duke at (707) 424-7520.  Your participation in the Travis AFB environmental cleanup program is welcomed!

Compliance Topics

The Compliance website covers the following areas of interest:

1. Environmental Management System (EMS) refers to the management of an organization's environmental programs in a comprehensive, systematic, planned and documented manner.  The EMS establishes the organizational structure and resources needed to develop, implement and enforce policy for environmental protection.

2. Air Installation Compatible Use Zone (AICUZ) refers to the protection of people's health, safety and welfare from noise and hazards through compatible development in the airport environment.  The Department of Defense developed this program to address the challenge of land development around military air installations.

3. The Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) is a document that provides consumers with information about the quality of their drinking water.

4. Stormwater Management refers to the management of the quality and quantity of stormwater (water from rain events and snow/ice melt).  Proper stormwater management usually consists of both engineered control devices and systems to treat or store polluted stormwater (e.g., retention basin) and operational practices (e.g., street sweeping).
