2011 Environmental Symposium -Roundtable 2

  1. 1. 2nd Annual North Carolina Federal Environmental Symposium June 10, 2011 Hosted by: North Carolina Military Business CenterSponsored by:
  2. 2. Roundtable 2This roundtable will address:•Solar hot water•Cooling tower systems and potable water conservation (26% improvement in efficiencyby FY2020)•Treatment distribution, reuse and recycling•Waste water and storm water management•Ground water contamination•Implementation of storm water provisions of the Energy Independence and Security Actof 2007•Solid waste minimization and recycling•Electronics disposal; toxic chemical disposal•Construction and demolition waste reduction (60% by FY2015)•Landfill gas•Achieving 50% recycling and waste diversion by 2015
  3. 3. Roundtable 2 Fort Bragg InitiativesCurrent Initiatives (Installation/Agency: Fort Bragg)1. No new permanent potable water irrigation systems2. Storm water remains on project site (use of low impact development conveyances)3. Year-round water conservation policy (multi-level, multi-agency)4. Source points: potable and non-potable5. Hydrant use permits6. Solar domestic hot water incorporated into all new construction that meet LCCA7. Hold quarterly electronic-waste (e-waste) drives and offer e-waste drop-off site yearround8. Cooking oil to bio-diesel production9. C&D Contractor Training10. Initiated direct sales of materials
  4. 4. Roundtable 2 Fort Bragg Future NeedsFuture Needs (Installation/Agency: Fort Bragg)1. Storm/rain water harvesting systems (gray water reuse)2. Watershed analysis3. Solar domestic hot water incorporated into all new construction that meet LCCA4. Expand recycling through the Incentives Program and expansion of recycling team5. Look at old landfills for methane capture6. Expand direct sales of materials
  5. 5. Roundtable 2 Camp Lejeune InitiativesCurrent Initiatives (Installation/Agency: Camp Lejeune )Solid Waste Minimization and Recycling:1. Humanitarian Assistance Program (HAP): On-going book donation program- MCB CL has shipped 1000 lbs of books to foreign countries.2. Concrete Crushing and Reutilization: MCB CL instituted a no-cost concrete crushingoperation to be reused in Base construction projects. In 2010, 21,270 tons of concretewas crushed and reused.3. Wood Grinding: MCB CL: wood grinding operation- wood, crates pallets tree debrisand yard diverted from the landfill and burned for energy or composted.4. Electronic Recycling : Annual Electronics Recycling Event for base personnel Thisyear, 10,000 pounds of electronics were recycled
  6. 6. Roundtable 2 Camp Lejeune InitiativesCurrent Initiatives (Installation/Agency: Camp Lejeune )Water Conservation:5. All new construction requires low flow toilets, urinals, faucets and showerheads andwhen possible retrofits existing buildings.6. Maintains long-term water distribution system leak detection and repair program with periodic leak surveys and repairs and maintains leaking faucets7. Installing, reading, and maintaining a network of meters to allow for water tracking.8. Develops and implements public awareness and education programs for allenvironmental compliance.
  7. 7. Roundtable 2 Camp Lejeune InitiativesCurrent Initiatives (Installation/Agency: Camp Lejeune )Stormwater:9. Continues to follow Coastal County requirements for stormwater, includes EISAStormwater language in MILCONS and requires the use of Low Impact Development(LID) Best Management Practices (BMPs) when possible.10. Implementing master (stormwater) permits that will cover entire watersheds andrequire treatment through LIDs when possible.
  8. 8. Roundtable 2 Camp Lejeune Future NeedsFuture Needs (Installation/Agency: Camp Lejeune )1. Recyclers for pallets, drums and mattresses.2. Small Business furniture repair – repair government furniture that is to be landfill. Some of the desk and chairs need minor repairs.3. Continuation of annual recycling programs – wood grinding, book program, electronics recycling
  9. 9. Roundtable 2 MCAS Cherry Point InitiativesCurrent Initiatives (Installation/Agency: MCAS Cherry Point )1. Solar water heating for pool2. Potable water meter installation3. Recycling of filter backwash at water treatment plant4. Water distribution system mixers (elevated storage tanks)5. Reclaimed water use on golf course6. Repairs to steam and condensate lines
  10. 10. Roundtable 2 MCAS Cherry Point InitiativesCurrent Initiatives (Installation/Agency: MCAS Cherry Point )7. LEED standards for new buildings8. Qualified Recycling Program9. Waste minimization – used solvent elimination; waste oil/fuels reuse; scrap woodenergy recovery; office paper recycling; materials recycling facility10. Consolidated Hazardous Material Reutilization and Inventory Management Program11. Low-impact development – bio-retention areas; cisterns
  11. 11. Roundtable 2 MCAS Cherry Point Future NeedsFuture Needs (Installation/Agency: MCAS Cherry Point )1. Drinking water standards met without need to flush distribution system2. Reclaimed water use on athletic fields, at central heating plant, and wastewater plant3. Sustainable building standards for improvements on existing facilities4. Coal ash reuse vs. disposal5. Water treatment plant softener media reuse vs. disposal6. Low-impact development – bio-retention areas; permeable pavement; cisterns; greenroofs
  12. 12. Roundtable 2 GSA InitiativesCurrent Initiatives (Installation/Agency: GSA)1. Water use reduction projects, advanced water metering, and awareness campaigns2. “Green Rooms” set up for recycling/re-using office supplies and products3. Electronics donation program4. 50% of Construction materials must be recycled5. Water Diversion: 20 buildings in the region currently measure for water diversion
  13. 13. Roundtable 2 GSA Future NeedsFuture Needs (Installation/Agency: GSA)1. Waste usage reduction : 16% of 2007 use by 20152. Goal of 70% with a minimum of 50% for all regional recycling
