Environmental regulations affect every aspect of Coast Guard operations from the way personnel commute to work, to emissions from heating plants and fuel storage tanks. Compliance with these regulations has greatly increased the cost and labor hours devoted to the storage and inventory control of hazardous materials, disposal of hazardous waste, and collection of associated data. Over the last decade, the management of hazardous materials and their associated by-products has become an increasing burden at every Coast Guard facility. Research and analysis of hazardous materials and waste programs at Coast Guard facilities, as well as reports from the Department of Defense and industry, indicate that significant reductions in the generation of hazardous wastes, air pollutant emissions, and environmental reporting costs are possible if the areas of hazardous materials management can be improved.
