The U.S. Navy is conducting environmental work at various sites on Navy installations in Washington, Alaska, and other northwestern states under mandates of the CERCLA and RCRA environmental regulations. This work is generally performed by private firms under contract to the Navy, commonly focusing on small areas near specific waste-disposal or spill sites.
To assist the Navy with the environmental cleanup work, the USGS is providing technical reviews of various documents produced by the Navy's contractors. The USGS is assisting the Navy in oversight and scientific investigations activities related to geology, geochemistry, microbiology, and hydrology.
