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.
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).
