  • Procurement

    • Goal 1: Eliminate waste disposal by 2028.

    • Goal 2: Procure 100 percent sustainable goods and services by 2028.

  • Training Support

    • Goal 1: Optimize use of existing installation training lands and ranges to support the mission.

    • Goal 2: Obtain contiguous and noncontiguous lands and airspace for unrestricted ground and air maneuver use.

  • Infrastructure

    • Goal 1: No adverse impact to the quality of water resources due to point and non-point sources on Fort Campbell. Efficient use of existing water resources.

    • Goal 2: Sustainable buildings and infrastructure that meet mission requirements.

  • Regional Development

    • Goal 1: Develop and implement a comprehensive regional development plan that enhances the installation’s readiness mission

    • Goal 2: Develop and implement a regional sustainability outreach/education/awareness/incentive program

Fort campbell strategic plan 2008 2013
Fort Campbell Strategic Plan 2008-2013

Strategic Goal: Sustain, Transform, and Modernize the Installation

  • Implement Installation Sustainability

    • Develop and implement sustainment strategies to minimize or reduce the total use of resources, ensure mission readiness, and improve the quality of life for our Soldiers while protecting the environment. Proactive strategies will ensure long-term mission viability and integrity while at the same time minimize the consumption of resources and reduce the impact on the surrounding communities and environment. Sustainment strategies must be implemented to encompass the current and future needs for training land, and reliable, secure, and economical energy, water, and other vital resources.

Sustainability initiatives 2008 2013
Sustainability Initiatives 2008-2013

  • Implement Sustainable Installation Management (SIMS) - ISO 14001

  • Implement Sustainable Facilities

  • Reduce Environmental Impact

  • Obtain training maneuver area per RTLP-DP

  • Execute Installation Encroachment Prevention Strategy

  • Improve & Sustain Training Areas to Support Current and Future War fighting Training Activities

  • Remove and Process Munitions/Target Residues from Tng Areas and Ranges

  • Improve and Protect Water Resources

  • Sustainable Technology Demonstration Projects

  • Initiate Affirmative Procurement Program (APP) ("Green" Procurement)


  • ISO 14001 EMS on track to meet Army implementation milestones

  • Hazardous materials (HAZMAT) management resulted in a 25 percent increase in combat readiness

  • Volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions reduced by 75 percent

  • Hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions reduced by 95 percent

  • Hazardous waste disposal reduced by 84.6 percent, realizing a 90.1 percent disposal cost reduction

  • Deconstruction on certain buildings reached a 95 percent salvage rate

  • Over 27,700 gallons of antifreeze recycled annually, providing a total program cost avoidance of $207,750

  • Military battery management resulted in a 55 percent reissue rate, providing a $1.5 million procurement cost avoidance and a $44,640 disposal cost avoidance

  • 292,918 gallons of used oil and fuel recycled annually, generating over $49,878 for morale, welfare and recreation (MWR) programs

  • 263,565 pounds of lead acid batteries recycled annually, generating $10,286 for MWR programs

  • Grinding and reuse of concrete from demolition provides 34,048 tons waste diversion annually and a $1,061,675 cost savings

  • A new Fort Campbell JLUS plan is expected to be completed by late 2007, which will provide updated recommendations to protect military training & preserve local growth.

  • ACUB program established in April 2006 and $1.7M in funding to date. Two primary partners, KY Dept of Agriculture and Land Trust for TN.

Division battery program
Division Battery Program

Example: BA-5590 Lithium

  • 7,369 batteries tested during FY 06

  • 3,644 batteries passed test and reissued

  • FY 06 procurement cost avoidance = $254,169

  • FY 06 disposal cost avoidance = $4,837

  • Implemented for each BCT

  • BN UBL Battery Requirement Managed

  • Batteries Procured by PPOC

  • Route Service to BN Commo Shops

  • Serviceability Testing Initiated

  • Free Re-issue of Serviceable Batteries (min 70% charge)

  • UN Packaging Performed for Deployments


  • Installation at full conformance with International standard 14001

  • LEED "Silver" rated buildings

  • Beneficial transportation partnerships with Kentucky/Tennessee

  • Potable water usage reduction

  • Energy use reduction

  • Increased renewable energy use

  • Air emissions reduction

  • Construction and Demolition (C&D) Waste diverted from landfill

  • Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) diverted from landfill

  • Reduction in hazardous waste generation

  • Reduction of impact on Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4)

  • Reduce adverse water quality impacts from stormwater

  • Acquire additional land for training

  • Acquire Army Compatible Use Buffer lands

  • Reduction of On-Post acres with Significant Training Restrictions

Expectations and concerns
Expectations and Concerns

  • Installation at full conformance with International standard 14001

    • Seems like an impossible task – no direct control over tenants and contractors

    • Need direction and oversight down the chain of command from all major commands, not just IMCOM

Expectations and concerns1
Expectations and Concerns

  • Energy use reduction

    • FTC currently undergoing rapid expansion and modernization; increasing Soldier strength by 7,000

    • New buildings use more energy than old ones do!

      • Have modern conveniences – 1 plus 1 barracks use more electricity because they have kitchens, refrigerators, microwaves, TVs in every room, etc.

    • Soldiers buying energy intensive electronic equipment

Expectations and concerns2
Expectations and Concerns

  • Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) diverted from landfill

    • Even when operating at maximum efficiency, only approximately 55% of municipal solid waste can be recycled

    • Will have to wait for advances in technology to handle the remaining 45%

      • Plasma technology (ultra high temperature combustion and gasification

      • FLUFF (grind, autoclave, dry and recycle resulting product)

Expectations of concern
Expectations of Concern

  • Reduce adverse water quality impacts from stormwater

    • Training area erosion continues to cause stream siltation; our worst water pollutant

    • Tough to find funds to work in this area; beans and bullets must come first

    • Low Impact development is essential. Challenges:

      • Learning curve

      • Willingness to take risk (try new ideas) under the transformation FRP process for MILCON

      • Lack of installation/designer knowledge/education of available LID technologies - We need to better educate ourselves on LEED silver and LID

    • Stormwater drainage system is already over taxed; low impact building design can help some, but will not resolve the problem; need $38M for upgrades.
