EnvironmentalWelcome to Buckley Air Force Base's environmental page. Here, you'll find everything related to Buckley's impact on its environment and what the base does to minimize that impact.

The base operates a Community Advisory Group (CAG) that meets on a semiannual basis to discuss environmental projects at the base. Generally it meets on the third Thursday of the months of April and October. To have your email address added to the CAG email list, please send a request to Mr. John Spann, Chief of Buckley Public Affairs, at john.spann@us.af.mil.

Information about Buckley's Environmental Restoration Program and Environmental Compliance Program is provided below.

ENVIRONMENTAL RESTORATION PROGRAM
The purpose of Buckley's Environmental Restoration Program is to clean up environmental contamination from historical activities on base. Information on restoration sites included in the program can be found in the Buckley AFB Information Repository (IR). The IR contains all Final Environmental Restoration documents to include work plans, reports, CAG minutes, and correspondence with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The IR is available on CD in the lower level of the Aurora Central Library (14949 East Alameda Avenue, Aurora, CO) on the References shelf; ask library staff if you need help finding it. Please call the library at 303-739-6600 for hours of operation.

Mr. Russell Clayshulte, the CAG Co-Chair, receives a copy of all Draft Final Environmental Restoration documents when they are submitted for CDPHE and EPA review. If you would like to review a Draft Final document, please contact Mr. Clayshulte at rclayshulte@earthlink.net.

In addition, the latest status of restoration sites can be obtained through semiannual Site Status Reports which are distributed to the CAG email list in January and July. Should you have any additional questions about Buckley's Environmental Restoration Program, please contact Mr. Scott Wilson (Buckley Restoration Program Manager; scott.wilson.7@us.af.mil).

ENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE PROGRAM
While the Restoration Program addresses issues from past activities, the Environmental Compliance Program assures compliance in current activities. Buckley AFB is committed to leadership and stewardship in protecting the environment, the prevention of pollution, and continual improvement. These are primary responsibilities of each person utilizing or working on the installation in any capacity.
