  11. 11. Conservation Conveyance and Other Base Disposals Marstel-Day conceptualized the DoD conservation conveyance authority under a multi-year study conducted for the Army and Navy. The authority—Title 10 (Section 2694a) “Conveyance of Surplus Real Property for Natural Resource Conservation”—allows DoD to convey land to state and local agencies and nonprofit conservators, which can reconvey to another qualified entity for permanent conservation. Within five years, 23% of all BRAC-designated land was conveyed under the authority. • Supported HQ Army and Navy in conveyance to federal agencies of BRAC sites with high conservation values, e.g.: – Camp Bonneville, WA to non-profit land trust (Conservation Conveyance ) – Sierra Army Depot, CA to non-profit land trust via (Conservation Conveyance) – Longhorn Army Ammo Plant, TX to Fish and Wildlife Service (Fed to Fed Transfer) – Savanna Army Ammo Depot, IL to Fish and Wildlife Service (Fed to Fed Transfer) – Fort McClellan, AL to Fish and Wildlife Service (Fed to Fed Transfer) • Assisted HQ Army and Navy in disposal of excess facilities to federal agencies, state and local governments under multiple disposal authorities (e.g., parks, education, public benefit, direct and negotiated sales) – Concord Naval Weapons Station, CA ; McClellan AFB; Volunteer Army Ammunition Plant ; Stratford Army Ammunition Plant 11
  12. 12. Conservation Conveyance and Other Base Disposals First Conservation Conveyance – Sierra Army Depot, CA Honey Lake, Lassen County, CA – 68,000 acres/173 Days • CA State Lands Commission (SLC) held reverter to land • SLC and Army disagreed for years on terms of cleanup and transfer • Army instead transferred site to land-acquiring non-profit via competitive bid process Wild horses running along the shore of Honey (interim deed holder) Lake in Lassen County, CA. • Non profits teamed with engineering firm to complete cleanup and habitat restoration; endowment to US FWS to support T&E species • Back-end transfer to SLC – completed October 2006 12

  15. 15. Net Environmental Benefit Assessments (NEBA) Our NEBAs allow landowners to better assess the relative risks and benefits of site remediation options to the natural environment and assist with selecting a cleanup approach that can both provide the greatest net natural resource benefits and appropriately manage ESOH site risks…. • Marstel-Day’s NEBA have assisted federal, land owning organizations to: • provide a framework to evaluate the relative risks and values of the potential remedial alternatives; and, • better assess the range of potential remedial alternatives • identify combinations of cleanup and land-use control approaches that provide the greatest net natural resource benefit while adequately managing potential ESOH site risks • Our NEBA approach offers a value-added tool for our decision-maker clients by identifying: • alternative, new approaches and ecological and economic metrics for restoration and transfer of contaminated properties • measures focused on outcomes and benefits to human health, the environment and economic revitalization • data availability, relevance quality &consistency to support outcome-based performance measures 15

  17. 17. Encroachment Management, Climate Adaptation and Base Sustainability • Marstel-Day’s conceptualized the FY 2003 NDAA encroachment partnering statute, designed to preserve habitat and open space while sustaining military missions; this is the foundation of our Encroachment Control Planning (ECP) practice. • Marstel-Day has developed ECP policies and a unique analytical methodology that has been used at the installation and enterprise levels for the Marine Corps, Navy, and Air Force. • ECPs and preserve important habitat and open space; address climate change impacts; assist installations to meet their environmental obligations; and reduce encroachment pressures on installation mission capabilities. The Commanding General MCI-East supported our Eastern North Carolina Land Use Strategy as the “path forward” for MCI-East. 17
  18. 18.

  19. 19. Encroachment Management, Climate Adaptation and Base Sustainability Marstel-Day’s analytic approaches for encroachment control planning and strategy development for encroachment partnership s have broad applications beyond DoD installations. Other federal lands such as the nation’s wildlife refuges face the many of the same encroachment factors that over time will degrade the habitat and impair the mission of the land or facility using the land. The federal and state agencies managing these lands must understand with whom and how to work with external stakeholders to anticipate, prevent, or mitigate encroachment factors. Potential Non-DoD • Support long-term preservation and management of Wildlife Applications of Refuges and National Parks Encroachment • Support strategic planning for emplacement of renewable and Management alternative energy projects • Diagnoses the encroachment challenges and provides a roadmaps of actionable solutions Benefits to the Client • Provides a framework for analyzing emerging climate change drivers • Identifies shared interests and points of conflict between the land owners and outside stakeholders 19
  20. 20. Encroachment Partnering and Conservation Land-Use Planning Examples Marstel-Day conceptualized the DoD encroachment partnering authority under a multi-year study conducted for the Army and Navy. The authority—Title 10 (Section 2684a) “Agreements to limit encroachments and other constraints on military training, testing, and operations”—allows DoD to partner with state and local agencies and conservation organizations to acquire lands contiguous to installations, or those ecologically related, in order to either prevent encroachment on the installation mission or to enhance the installation’s ability to meet its environmental stewardship obligations. • Encroachment Partnering Plans to identify conservation land partnership opportunities at all ECP sites • Compatible Land Use Strategy for Eastern North Carolina • Regional Growth Management Plan for Military Growth Task Force (MGTF), North Carolina’s Eastern Region • Feed and Fuel the Force Initiative, MCI-East, • Water resources, air quality, energy conservation and compatible land-use planning support at MCAGCC Twentynine Palms, CA 20
