e. National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA). The NHPA safeguards against the loss of
irreplaceable historical, archaeological, and cultural properties. The NHPA requires Army installations to
identify and safeguard possible archaeological and historical sites, artifacts, and structures. It also
requires the Army to protect and preserve the historical sites located on its installations. Soldiers comply
with the NHPA by--
Leaving historical and prehistorical artifacts and sites undisturbed.
Reporting the discovery of artifacts and sites to the chain of command.
Reporting vandalism, theft, and damage to historical, cultural, and archaeological sites.
Planning and conducting training, operations, and logistics activities to avoid damaging
historical and archaeological sites.
f. Endangered Species Act (ESA). The ESA protects threatened and endangered plants and
animals. Army installations often include natural areas that are the last remaining refuge for endangered
plants and animals. Almost every military training area has some endangered species. Soldiers comply
with the ESA by--
Recognizing signs and markers that indicate protected habitat areas.
Avoiding marked-off habitat areas during training and operations.
Following installation regulations for hunting, fishing, and camping.
Obeying range control guidelines for cutting brush and trees for camouflage.
g. Federal Facilities Compliance Act (FFCA). The FFCA allows the EPA and states to inspect
and fine Army installations that violate environmental laws identified in the RCRA. The FFCA also
allows federal, state, and local environmental agencies to prosecute soldiers who knowingly violate
environmental laws during the performance of their duties. Soldiers comply with the FFCA by--
Cooperating with environmental inspectors.
