The Local Government Environmental Assistance Network (LGEAN) provides environmental management, planning, and regulatory information for local government elected and appointed officials, managers, and staff. LGEAN provides this toolbox as a resource to assist local government officials in their efforts to protect the environment and public health. The tools are designed to help users perform operations and calculations necessary to fulfill environmental reporting requirements or guide the development of a helpful environmental program. 

The Environmental Management System Implementation Tool Kit
The Environmental Management System Implementation Tool Kit is intended for use by Department of the Army installations seeking to implement an Environmental Management System (EMS) modeled after the international Environmental Management System Standard Specification (ISO 14001). Installations can implement an ISO 14001 EMS to meet the requirements of Executive Order 13148 "Greening of Government through Environmental Leadership". The step-by-step guidance section uses a motor pool as a generic example, which users can customize to their specific organization. The virtual toolbox section also provides some examples of other DoD and commercial organizations' EMS manuals and/or documents. The Fort Lewis EMS Manual section provides a completed example of an EMS manual and supporting documents based on procedures and practices of Fort Lewis, Washington Directorate of Public Works. The Directorate of Public Works was certified to the ISO 14001 Standard in September, 2000.
