The Department of Defense’s testing and training ranges are a critical asset for the military; however, they present unique challenges for characterization, control, and treatment technologies. In FY2019, SERDP began funding two groups of projects to address (1) mitigation of the transport of munitions constituents from testing and training range sites and (2) treatment of wastes from munitions constituent manufacturing.

Environmental Screening Levels (ESLs) are concentrations for groundwater, soil, soil gas, and indoor air derived by the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board for over 100 chemicals to allow direct comparison to environmental sample data collected at contaminated sites. More
Watershed modeling systems are a critical component of efforts to support and maintain military readiness and the sustainability of DoD testing and training lands. A recently completed ESTCP effort supported the demonstration and validation of the Better Assessment Science Integrating point and Non-point Sources (BASINS) Modeling System. More
SERDP has spent significant time and resources in the development of an engineering-level probabilistic model of underwater munitions burial and mobility.
Since 2016, SERDP has released three Statements of Need (SONs) aimed at developing a better understanding of ecotoxicity risks from PFAS at AFFF-impacted sites.
ESTCP invested in one such efficiency project that offered a solution to reduce energy and water use in dishroom operations. The project team was led by Gas Technology Institute (GTI) and the demonstration was conducted at US Army Garrison Presidio of Monterey, CA. More
