In response to a Congressional request, the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army (OASA) Installations, Logistics & Environment (I,L&E) tasked the Army Environmental Policy Institute to study the health and environmental consequences of using depleted uranium (DU) on the battlefield. The study also examined the potential for remediating DU contamination, ways to reduce DU toxicity, and methods to protect the environment from the long-term consequences of DU use. Results from the study were initially presented in a Summary Report to Congress. Documentation and detail about the findings and conclusions of the summary report are presented in this technical report.
