The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Environmental Support Team (EnvST) is a cadre of environmental engineers and specialists that serve on an expeditionary team, providing support to the combatant command and its components during war, contingency operations, and disaster relief operations. These teammates provide critical environmental support to U.S. Forces deployed overseas so they can focus on their mission.
EnvST provides environmental support to Field Force Engineering (FFE). Field Force Engineering (FFE) provides engineering services to the military, Department of Defense and federal agencies in support of military and catastrophic disaster relief operations relevant to national security. History shows that engineering requirements in these missions are often overwhelming in the early stages of operations and again during the post-hostility/post-declaration phase. As a result, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers specialists are called upon to fill the capability gaps.
These activities are conducted in coordination with host nations and in accordance with environmental laws and regulations.
