To keep NSA Naples community informed of the Navy's policy to maintain environmental excellence and prevent pollution.
Public Work Environmental Division is a component of Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) located at NSA Naples whose mission is to ensure the NSA Naples operations comply with laws concerning the protection of the environment.
These regulations are found in the Final Governing Standards (FGS) for Italy, which is a document compiled from both US and Italian law and is regularly updated. The FGS is divided into several chapters covering disposal of hazardous wastes generated by base activity, drinking water, spill response, underground storage tank monitoring, air emissions, and several other environmental media.
PW Environmental also has an outreach program and is continually looking for ways to keep the NSA Naples community informed of the Navy's policy to maintain environmental excellence and prevent pollution.
The Environmental division has also developed and implemented an Environmental Management System (EMS) per Navy Policy guidance based on the international norm ISO 14001 (See “EMS Policy Statement” and EMS "What you need to know” links on this page), as a result the following four areas were indentified as requiring more focused preventive efforts: Hazardous Materials and waste reduction, Potential Spills reduction, Energy and Water use reduction, and Solid Waste reduction.
