MCM-6 Pollution Prevention/Good Housekeeping
Fort Hood must establish an operation and maintenance program, including an employee training component that has the ultimate goal of preventing or reducing pollutant runoff from municipal operations. The municipal staff conducts numerous operational and maintenance activities on a daily basis that have the potential of affecting storm water runoff. Structural and non-structural controls must be developed to ensure that municipal operations are conducted properly to prevent storm water pollution in the following municipally owned areas:
Industrial Activities TrainingFort Hood currently conducts annual storm water training for employees of all permitted industrial storm water sites on Fort Hood. There are currently 45 permitted facilities on Fort Hood that are required to complete this training. The training educates all military, contractor, and civilian personnel on good housekeeping techniques and activities that can help prevent storm water pollution in the industrial workplace. Some of the topics the training covers include standard operating procedures, regular maintenance and upkeep of work areas, and spill response procedures. To determine if your activity is a permitted industrial storm water site or to schedule a training event, please contact the DPW water quality specialist at 618-8888.
Structural Control Maintenance ProgramFort Hood has developed storm drain maintenance team program within the DPW maintenance division. The team inspects and assesses the structural storm water controls located throughout the cantonment areas of the Installation for sediment buildup, structural integrity, and the presence of illicit discharges. Maintenance activities are conducted along drainage inlets, ditches, and pipes and channels. The type of maintenance activities include removing floatables (i.e. grass clippings and trash), sediment, and other pollutants from storm drains and repairing structural damage and erosion of existing channels. To report an area in need of maintenance, please contact the storm water program at 287-9812.
