A critical aspect of the success execution of mission-related activities on Travis AFB is the compliance with federal and State of California environmental laws and regulations. The Asset Management Flight, a subset of the 60th Civil Engineer Squadron, is tasked with ensuring that all base organizations and tenants carry out their daily tasks without having an adverse impact on human health and the environment.
Environmental Compliance addresses a number of categories: hazardous material management, hazardous waste handling and disposal, air permitting, stormwater, petroleum/oil/lubricant (POL) management, and environmental management system implementation. Several of these categories are described in more detail below.
