Environmental and Natural Resource Technical Support, Fort Rucker, AL – USACE Mobile District
Since 2014, KGS/Trinity has supported Fort Rucker’s Environmental, Natural Resource, and Master Planning/Real Estate programs through USACE Mobile District. Through our full-time, on-site staff at the Installation and company reach-back support, KGS/Trinity works closely with the Government staff as a technical liaison between the state and federal regulatory agencies and the Fort Rucker community. KGS/Trinity support covers all environmental compliance media areas (CAA, CWA, SDWA, RCRA-C/D, OPA, etc.) to include necessary permitting, management plan updates, inspections, and reporting. In support of Fort Rucker’s Natural Resources Program, KGS/Trinity assisted with invasive species management (i.e. feral hog trapping), forest management inventories, timber marking, and prescribed burns and also incorporated wildlife, flora/fauna, and aquatic species survey data into geodatabases and map overlays. Our staff assists Master Planning in meeting Army and DoD facility space utilization requirements through facility inspections and maintaining/updating the installation geospatial data inventory. We also manage the Fort Rucker website, update installation policies and work instructions as regulations evolve/change, perform internal EPAS inspections, and conduct quarterly and annual environmental training for Fort Rucker’s active duty and civilian personnel. In short, we serve as a partner to Fort Rucker DPW to advise on and assist in the implementation of, the procedures necessary to obey the law without interrupting or degrading the Fort Rucker mission or the quality of life of the workforce, students, and residents.
