Forrest Gump and acknowledged such to the class - is an Environmental Scientist at Camp Rilea who keeps the installation in compliance with many different environmental regulations that are unique to DOD installations (residual lead at places where bullets are used) to not so unique to DOD installations (drinking water and wastewater analyses). LT Dan designed and managed construction of an environmental laboratory for his work which is the subject of this posting.
As previously discussed here, Camp Rilea is one of the few DOD installations aggressively pursuing a Net Zero footprint for water, energy, and waste. Recalling the Six "Z"s of sustainable living here, LT Dan "Z6ed" the students to the Net Zero for water program and the awards Camp Rilea has earned in this area. Camp Rilea serves as a training ground for police, scouts, cheerleaders, football players, etc. - it is a "public" base. Anyone can go there to camp, stay in a barrack, or eat at Kilroys (killer pastrami and rye sandwiches, good selection of beverages, too).
