Defense Environmental Restoration Program (DERP) Annual Reports to Congress

Each year, the Department of Defense (DoD) submits an annual report to Congress (ARC) on its Defense Environmental Programs (DEP). The Report describes the Department’s accomplishments during the past year in its restoration, conservation, compliance, and pollution prevention programs by addressing plans and funding needs for protecting human health, sustaining the resources DoD holds in the public trust, meeting its environmental requirements, and supporting the military mission.

The vision for the Environmental Restoration Program is to be a national leader in environmental cleanup; addressing past environmental releases that limit or prevent reuse of property. The Army’s environmental cleanup efforts are integral to enabling mission readiness by returning Army lands to usable condition and are critical in protecting human health and the environment from risks associated with substances and practices previously used in Army and Department of Defense (DoD) operations.
