Abstract: Abstract: This report provides land evaluation criteria and procedures for incorporating environment al and natural resource considerations into the process of choosing sites for tactical vehicle training. Environmental and natural resource ,e1ements which are addressed include land use. noise, terrain, soil, air quality, water quality, vegetation and wildlife. Procedures to lessen the impact of tactical vehicle training on these resources are suggested. A simple technique for recording evaluation results and site recommendations is provided. The guidance presented in this report is designed to be as nontechnical as possible. It can be applied by persons with varying levels of expertise in environmental and natural resource management. The guidance can be used to respond quickly and accurately to requests for input into training area site selection and for the preliminary environmental analysis of alternative sites. Users may include persons in the installation's natural resource, environmental, master planning, or Directorate of Plans and Training offices. The procedures and techniques will enable the user to systematically compare the suitability of the environmental and natural resources of alternative areas. This will aid in more environmentally sensitive site selection and decision-making.
