EANGUS, along with ROA, TAPS, Veteran Warriors, Vietnam Veterans of America, and most recently NGAUS, are drafting a letter to Deputy Secretary of Defense David Norquist to end the use of burn pits by DOD, and to field the Expeditionary Solid Waste Disposal System (ESWDS) immediately. The requirement is for $8.5 million for fielding ten systems for use where open burn pits are in operation today; and an additional $10 million to jumpstart a program of record to furnish ESWDS in regions where waste management can be accomplished using ESWDS. We have positive indications within the Pentagon that Secretary Norquist will approve this action.
