Naval Base Ventura County

Pollution Prevention Team
Point Mugu, CA

The Naval Base Ventura County Complex includes facilities at Point Mugu, Port Hueneme and San Nicolas Island. Three separate commands make up the Pollution Prevention Team that continues to make tremendous strides. Some examples: a biodiesel plant is under development to produce up to a million gallons per year and is being tested in the National Park Service, Navy, and Ventura County vehicles and boats. A large scale powder coating system has reduced paint and solvent usage and disposal by 80 percent, energy reduction strategies have reduced energy consumption by 47 percent since 1985, and a risk-based assessment has been conducted on all large electrical devices to ensure spill prevention and control measures are in place. A project review board ensures all Navy projects are reviewed for environmental impacts and pollution prevention and many education, outreach and partnering initiatives have been implemented.
