Performance Work Statement Title: Fiscal Year 2015 Pollution Prevention Program Support 1.0 BACKGROUND 1.1 General. Pollution Prevention (P2) is the Army's preferred approach, where timely and cost-effective, to achieve and maintain compliance with environmental laws and regulations. The Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG) Pollution Prevention (P2) Program focuses on using environmentally sound solutions as the preferred method to achieve and maintain compliance and to reduce the compliance burden. P2 is accomplished by implementing cost-effective approaches to pollution source elimination, reduction, or waste minimization. P2 encompasses those activities which reduce the quantity of hazardous, toxic, or industrial pollutants at the source by changing the production, industrial, or other waste generating process. P2 is not limited to hazardous pollutants released to air, water, and land, but also includes activities to encourage the reduction of the amounts of non-hazardous commercial and household wastes. 1.2 Pollution Prevention Opportunity Assessments (PPOA). A PPOA is a tool used to define the specific characteristics of a single operation or activity that creates environmental impacts (e.g., wastes, releases or toxic chemicals to the environment, energy/water usage, and habitat destruction). Specifically, the pollution prevention opportunity assessment is a systematic evaluation of processes and operation to: 1.2.1 Characterize all aspects of the process or operation, including process flow, waste generation patterns, material and power consumption, costs, manpower, and reliance on toxic chemicals. 1.2.2 Define the impacts that the process and related wastes have on the air, water, and land 1.2.3 Assign related costs and liabilities with specific wastes and management practices. This information documented in the PPOA is used to identify, refine, and plan the implementation of pollution prevention technologies that will reduce the environmental impacts associated with the process. 1.3 APG Commuter Center. The APG Commuter Center was created as a local government partnership with Harford County in 2013 with a 15-month grant through the Dodd's Office of Economic Adjustment. It was created as the result of an APG traffic study recommendation to ultimately reduce the number of single-occupancy vehicles commuting to APG. The purpose of APG Commuter Center is to inform APG commuters of their alternative commuting options by providing information and guidance, provide rideshare matching and advocate for alternative commuting opportunities at APG such as commuter buses and shuttles. 2.0 APPLICABLE DOCUMENTS The following documents (the version shown or the most recent issue) form part of this SOW.
