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
The 2019 Symposium will be held at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park in Washington D.C. on December 3-5, 2019.
Based on tests conducted in SERDP project WP-2144, hexavalent chromium corrosion inhibitors in adhesive bond primers were found to have no statistical significance for adhesive bondline environmental durability compared to non-chromated and non-inhibited primer variants.
SERDP and ESTCP investments in contaminated sediment management research achieved a major milestone with the specification of activated carbon placement as part of the remedy in the Records of Decision (RODs) for Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam (JBPHH) in Hawaii, and for the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard (HPNS) in California.
