  • As the 21st century nears, the use of natural resources and the preservation of environmental quality are the focus of increased worldwide attention. The Cooperative Extension System (CES) thereby is presented with expanded opportunities and responsibilities for outreach education in natural resources and environmental management (NREM). To meet this challenge, a 17-member team of Extension professionals-selected to represent the geographic, academic, and cultural diversity of the CES-has prepared this report. This document is a plan to guide the Cooperative Extension System in strengthening programs in the area of natural resources and environmental management education. The implementation of this systemwide Strategicmore » Plan and of similar state plans will expand the scope and effectiveness of NREM education and facilitate better service to diverse customers. State NREM support teams will be established to provide leadership, coordinate educational needs and priorities, and increase the resources available for NREM programming. A national NREM support team also will be formed to provide national coordination, resource development, and accountability.« less
  • This document describes an educational program designed to provide a pool of highly qualified administrative, technical, and managerial graduates that are familiar with the Hanford Site and business operations. The program is designed to provide work experience and mentoring to a culturally diverse student base which enhances affirmative employment goals. Short-term and long-term objectives of the program are outlined in the report, and current objectives are discussed in more detail. Goals to be completed by the year 2003 are aimed at defining the criteria necessary to establish partnerships between schools, community organizations, and human resources departments. Actions to be implementedmore » includes providing instructors and equipment, enhancing skills of local teachers, and establishing collaboration with human resources organizations. Long-term goals of the program are to ensure a constant supply of qualified, trained workers to support industry missions. 6 refs., 1 tab.« less
  • The Scotts Valley Band of Pomo Indians is located in Lake County in Northern California. Similar to the other five federally recognized Indian Tribes in Lake County participating in this project, Scotts Valley Band of Pomo Indians members are challenged by generally increasing energy costs and undeveloped local energy resources. Currently, Tribal decision makers lack sufficient information to make informed decisions about potential renewable energy resources. To meet this challenge efficiently, the Tribes have committed to the Lake County Tribal Energy Program, a multi Tribal program to be based at the Robinson Rancheria and including The Elem Indian Colony, Bigmore » Valley Rancheria, Middletown Rancheria, Habematolel Pomo of Upper Lake and the Scotts Valley Pomo Tribe. The mission of this program is to promote Tribal energy efficiency and create employment opportunities and economic opportunities on Tribal Lands through energy resource and energy efficiency development. This program will establish a comprehensive energy strategic plan for the Tribes based on Tribal specific plans that capture economic and environmental benefits while continuing to respect Tribal cultural practices and traditions. The goal is to understand current and future energy consumption and develop both regional and Tribe specific strategic energy plans, including action plans, to clearly identify the energy options for each Tribe.« less
  • This document is a strategic plan for accomplishing environmental restoration objectives at the Department of Energy's (DOE) Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant (PORTS). Waste Management (WM) for environmental restoration activities and integration of these activities into the PORTS WM operations is addressed in this document. The document provides detailed information concerning specific assumptions and activities required to meet DOE's environmental restoration objectives at this site. Environmental contamination at PORTS consists mainly of spent solvents and low level radionuclides. Solvents were used for industrial metal cleaning operations required to maintain the process during operations. Plumes of groundwater contamination resulting from past disposalmore » of these spent solvents in landfills and impoundments extend from several locations within the site. Also, two sludge impoundments associated with a chromate reduction facility were characterized as having soil and groundwater contaminated with hexavalent chromium.« less
  • A strong enforcement program is one of the highest priorities for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Aggressive enforcement is the key to effective EPA, State, local and international programs and a clean environment. As the regulatory responsibilities grow, EPA must maintain an enforcement program that will protect human health and the environment, as well as promote pollution prevention and waste minimization on the part of the regulated community. As part of the Agency-wide strategic planning process, EPA directed the Office of Enforcement to develop a comprehensive enforcement plan with both media-specific (i.e., air, water, toxics, etc.) and cross-media components. Themore » Enforcement Four-Year Strategic Plan outlines the capabilities which will be needed to enhance enforcement efforts for the future. Several are now being implemented on a pilot basis, while others will be fully developed over the next several years.« less
