Explosive ordnance engineering is the technical evaluation of risk to the public associated with ordnance contaminated sites, the formulation of risk reduction measures, trade off analysis to compare alternate risk reduction measures and recommendation of the best alternative with respect to engineering judgments and public input. The analysis and evaluations must be mindful all factors normally associated with a full public interest review including a complete range of environmental considerations.

The Explosive ordnance mission has two major objectives:

a. To reduce risk to the general public through CERCLA response actions for sites contaminated with ordnance and explosive waste (OEW).

b. To execute response actions €or sites contaminated with explosive ordnance with minimum risk to Government personnel and contractors.
