Army Environmental Programs Meet Criteria for Excellence
December 22, 2005 

The Secretary of the Army, the Honorable Francis J. Harvey, announced
today the award winners for environmental excellence during fiscal year 2005.

Five installations and four teams will receive the Secretary of the
Army?s environmental award for their dedication to environmental
stewardship while sustaining the Army's mission.

Some of the noteworthy accomplishments credited to this year's winners
include programs that enhanced wildlife habitat while providing ideal
training conditions; that safely and successfully cleaned-up
contamination with significant cost savings; that preserved invaluable
state cultural history; that created innovative pollution prevention
approaches; and that fielded weapon systems built with both the Soldier
and environmental safety in mind.

The winners of the FY 2005 Secretary of the Army Environmental Awards are:

*  Fort Campbell, Ky. ? Environmental Quality, Non-industrial Installation

*  Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield Sustainability and Management
Team, Ga. ? Environmental Quality, Team

*  Fort Leonard Wood, Mo. ? Cultural Resources Management, Installation

?The Army is committed to good environmental stewardship and the long
term sustainability of its installations,? said Tad Davis, Deputy
Assistant Secretary of the Army for the Environment, Safety and
Occupational Health. ?We can't send our Soldiers out to engage the
Global War on Terror without training them as they need to fight, but we
don't have to sacrifice the environment to provide that training. As
these awardees so ably show, we use innovation, dedication, and hard
work to balance readiness with environmental sustainability.?

Representatives from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; the U.S.
Bureau of Land Management; the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service; the
Advisory Council on Historic Preservation; the National Conference of
State Legislatures; environmental management office representatives from
five states; and the Office of the Federal Environmental Executive
served as judges on the award panels.

The Secretary of the Army Environmental Awards represent the highest
honor in the field of environmental science conferred by the Army.
Winners of the awards will go on to compete against the Air Force, the
Navy and the Marine Corps for the Secretary of Defense's Environmental Awards.
