Environmental Management Office


To integrate environmental values into McAlester Army Ammunition Plant’s (MCAAP) mission in order to sustain readiness, improve the Soldier’s quality of life, strengthen community relationships, and provide sound environmental stewardship of resources.


  • • Ensure that MCAAP achieves, maintains, and monitors compliance with all applicable Executive Orders, federal, regional, state, and local statutory and regulatory requirements.
  • • Comply with compliance requirements in statutorily mandated or authorized documents such as permits, judicial decrees, consent and compliance agreements.
  • • Reduce compliance costs and simplify requirements to the extent possible. Pollution prevention is the preferred means for attaining compliance. Additional pollution prevention guidance is in Department of Defense Instruction 4705.4.
  • • Plan, program, and budget to achieve, maintain, and monitor compliance with applicable environmental requirements. MCAAP shall fund all requirements (based on the "environmental quality status") in Classes 0, I, and II consistent with timely execution to meet future deadlines.
  • • Use supplemental environmental projects, preferably pollution prevention, to offset fines and penalties where appropriate and allowed by fiscal law.
  • • Use cooperative solutions to provide needed environmental facilities or services where economically advantageous and consistent with mission requirements.
  • • Participate in the development of federal, state, and local plans and programs for achieving, maintaining, and enhancing environmental quality (e. g., watershed protection, management plans, and air quality implementation plans).
  • • Pay reasonable fees or service charges to state and local governments for compliance costs.
  • • Use commercially proven solutions, including available technology, to achieve, maintain, and monitor compliance, where possible. Promote the development and use of innovative solutions for the prevention of pollutants when economically advantageous and consistent with mission requirements.
  • • Conduct internal and external compliance self-assessments. Expeditiously report all information required by applicable statutes, regulations, permits, orders, and agreements. Promptly correct any environmental violations discovered.
  • • Prohibit the use of DoD installations for the storage or disposal of non-DoD owned toxic or hazardous materials, as per 10 U.S.C. 2692. The storage and disposal of non-DoD owned toxic or hazardous material reported or discovered in areas outside of DoD installations are primarily the responsibilities of civil authorities. Exceptions to that policy are in 10 U.S.C. 2692.
