Safe Drinking Water Act The Safe Drinking Water Act ( SDWA ) is the main federal law that ensures the quality of drinking water in the US . The SDWA authorizes the EPA to set national health‐based drinking water standards to protect against both naturally‐occurring and man‐made water contaminants . The SDWA applies to every public water system in the US .
Sentinel Landscapes Program The US Departments of Agriculture , Defense and the Interior announced the Sentinel Landscapes Partnership in 2013 . Sentinel Landscapes works to accomplish three critical goals : preserve agricultural lands , assist with military readiness , and restore and protect wildlife habitat . In this unique collaboration , the federal departments are working with state , local , and private partners to preserve and restore natural lands important to the nation ’ s defense mission .
The Eastern North Carolina Sentinel Landscape , one of the six current Sentinel Landscapes , works to address top priority encroachment concerns identified by the military , including restrictions related to species conservation and potential development of privately owned agriculture , forest , and open space lands . The program works with federal and state partners to offer voluntary landowner incentives protecting aviation training routes through the promotion of compatible land uses . Through the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services , qualifying landowners in the 33‐county region are able to access funding assistance for implementing best management practices for land and water resource management . Other partners offer cost sharing opportunities to local governments for conserving priority wildlife habitat .
The Sikes Act The Sikes Act requires the DOD to develop and implement Integrated Natural Resources Management Plans ( INRMPs ) for military installations . The INRMPs are prepared in cooperation with the USFWS and state fish and wildlife agencies to ensure proper consideration needs . The Sikes Act requires INRMPs to be revi by the military and the states . Air Force Instruct Natural Resources Management , guides the Air F Sikes Act .
Telecommunications Act of 1996 an Communications Commission The Telecommunications Act of 1996 was the fir a federal telecommunication law in over 60 year intended to open up the marketplace to greater means through which information is produced , a made the federal government response imperat development of personal mobile phones , satellit fiber optics , and other related factors are often p system capacity .

Background Report
Safe Drinking Water Act wildlife agencies to ensure proper consideration of fish, wildlife, and habitat  needs.  The Sikes Act requires INRMPs to be reviewed at least every five years  by the military and the states.  Air Force Instruction 32‐7064, Integrated  Natural Resources Management, guides the Air Force implementation of the  Sikes Act.  The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) is the main federal law that ensures the  quality of drinking water in the US.  The SDWA authorizes the EPA to set  national health‐based drinking water standards to protect against both  naturally‐occurring and man‐made water contaminants.  The SDWA applies  to every public water system in the US.  Telecommunications Act of 1996 and the Federal Communications Commission Sentinel Landscapes Program The US Departments of Agriculture, Defense and the Interior announced the  Sentinel Landscapes Partnership in 2013.  Sentinel Landscapes works to  accomplish three critical goals: preserve agricultural lands, assist with military  readiness, and restore and protect wildlife habitat.  In this unique  collaboration, the federal departments are working with state, local, and  private partners to preserve and restore natural lands important to the  nation’s defense mission.  The Telecommunications Act of 1996 was the first comprehensive update to  a federal telecommunication law in over 60 years and was in large part  intended to open up the marketplace to greater competition. Changes in the  means through which information is produced, accessed, stored, and shared  made the federal government response imperative. The increasing use and  development of personal mobile phones, satellite transmission, high speed  fiber optics, and other related factors are often pushing demand beyond the  system capacity.    The Eastern North Carolina Sentinel Landscape, one of the six current  Sentinel Landscapes, works to address top priority encroachment concerns  identified by the military, including restrictions related to species  conservation and potential development of privately owned agriculture,  forest, and open space lands. The program works with federal and state  partners to offer voluntary landowner incentives protecting aviation training  routes through the promotion of compatible land uses. Through the North  Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, qualifying  landowners in the 33‐county region are able to access funding assistance for  implementing best management practices for land and water resource  management.  Other partners offer cost sharing opportunities to local  governments for conserving priority wildlife habitat.  New telecommunication tower siting requires compliance with the Federal  Communi ][ۜ[Z\[۸&\ p[\ۛY[[0]Y][\[0Y\\0[Y[Tp[0Tp\X[K0p\X[K0Y\[p[p\XXpPp\]Z\[Y[[0X\pY\][۰]0p˰0pXX[0\ݘ[0ٰ\X[0[[][ۜ\XX0]p[0[0\Z][0\ݘ[]\0]p[0[0]]ܚ]p\[Z]Y0p]˰0ܰ[[K0]\[0[0\\X[ۜ[0\pZ\X\[ۜ۰[p\ܝY0[\ۛY[[0YXٰY[\]Y[p[Z\[ۜ˰0T]X[^\Y\ܞH\[BpT]X[^\0Y\ܞp\[p TRTp\p[ܘ\X[ܛX][۰\[x$\Y0\0]Y[p[[0][Y0ppTZ\ܘp\Y0ܰ'[[\\[0ܜ[][۰ٰ\0X]] 0ZYܘ][ۋ0[0YY[\X\\X0X[Y0]0^p[\ۛY[[0[0X[$XYp[]X[0]K'p0p[[0ݚY\\8$$]p[ܛX][۰8$8'X\X[8$[Yx'p8$X]0HZ\XpZ\X0\]Z\\p0][0[0[\[Y[0[Yܘ]Y0]\[0\\\X[Y[Y[0[ STpܰZ[]\p[[][ۜ˰0pST\p\\Y0[\][۰]0pTѕ[0]p\0[0Xܛ[0\ܝ00Yp 8$ Lp
