Our clients receive the highest quality work, backed by the latest science. Our position at CSU provides us access to a wide array of technical expertise, and we successfully tackle large, complex, long-term projects across the map and the environmental spectrum.
Comprehensive Air Force GIS Data Standardization – This multi-year GIS program brings disparate AF environmental data into synch for better analysis and response. Work is split among three task orders and provides GIS support to all AF environmental program areas at the base level, including Natural Resources, Cultural Resources, Restoration, and Compliance.
Environmental Impact Statement for Live-Fire Training – To accommodate mission standards, the US Army in Alaska must maximize live-fire weapons training opportunities year-round at Fort Richardson. In accordance with NEPA, CEMML is preparing an EIS that evaluates options, including increasing the use of an impact area adjacent to Cook Inlet and the potential development of new permanent explosive munitions. The EIS has been complicated by concurrent joint-basing of Fort Richardson and Elmendorf Air Force Base, and federal designation of the Cook Inlet beluga whale as an endangered species. CEMML is meeting these challenges by combining field studies and state-of-the-art technology to evaluate potential impacts, particularly to the beluga whale, while also remaining sensitive to native traditions related to the beluga whale.
Beach Stabilization Bellows AF Station HI – CEMML studied the problem and designed and planted native plants along the Bellows shoreline to stabilize and reduce beach erosion. The project successfully removed invasive plant species that were accelerating erosion and established mature plantings to prevent or slow erosion.
Cultural Resources – CEMML plays a key role in the Combatant Command Cultural Heritage Action Group (CCHAG) that provides US military personnel with technical support in the areas of in-theatre cultural heritage preservation and cultural property protection. This support includes a variety of awareness-building products, such as informational, country-specific websites, interactive web-based training modules, cultural heritage playing cards and soldier pocket cards.
Flora and Fauna Surveys – The Wyoming Army National Guard recently acquired the 21,000-acre Gray Rocks Ranch as an addition to Camp Guernsey for advanced military training. CEMML biologists have conducted comprehensive surveys of the mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and insects to provide a baseline for resource monitoring and management.
