​The mission of the Environmental Health Sciences Division is to identify, monitor and mitigate adverse public health impacts to the Army Community from threats posed by hazardous and medical materials/wastes and environmental noise.

​Environmental Noise Branch To assess and manage noise impacts produced by military training and testing activities (i.e., aviation activity, military weapons or weapons systems operations). Environmental noise addresses sound levels below where hearing protection is not required, but are high enough to produce other negative health effects and/or interfere with quality of life.

Environmental noise management strives to promote compatibility both on-post, and in the surrounding communities off-post.​​​
