About ERAs, WTAs, TRVs, and TG 254
The APHC has implemented the Standard Practice in TG 254 for environmental chemicals of military concern. The Standard Practice is primarily intended for use by APHC to generate wildlife TRVs that are defensible and to provide a standard set of information for practitioners in the field. If a TRV relevant to a particular Army ERA has been generated by APHC using this methodology, then its use is expected unless an alternative can be reasonably defended.
The program has been implemented using a phased approach, focusing on the highest-priority chemicals first. Other U.S. Army and military entities are encouraged to use this Standard Practice and our Wildlife Toxicity Assessment (WTA) reports within their ERA programs.
