Abstract:

A Nimitza class carrier supports and operates aircraft to engage in attacks on targets afloat and ashore that threaten the Navy's use of the sea and engages in sustained operations in support of other forces. Nimitz class carriers have a combat load displacement of approximately 97,000 tons, two nuclear reactors, and nuclear fuel for at least 20 years of normal carrier operations. This report discusses the adequacy of planning and providing for the reduction and control of hazardous materials used in the design, manufacture, maintenance, and disposal for the Nimitz calss nuclear aircraft carriers. DoD environmental management policy relating to hazardous materials is to prevent, mitigate, or remediate environmental damage that acquisition programs cause. Prudent investments in pollution prevention can reduce life-cycle environmental costs and liability and improve environmental quality and program performance.
