Abstract : Joint Base Andrews-Naval Air Facility Washington (JBA) is proposing to repair the airfield storm drainage system at multiple locations on the airfield. An assessment of JBA's airfield storm drainage system conducted in 2010 revealed numerous failing or inadequate system elements that cause ponding on runways and taxiways, resulting in unsafe conditions. The existing condition of the airfield storm drainage system impairs JBA's ability to successfully meet its National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit conditions and comply with state and federal water quality regulations.The purpose of the Proposed Action is to provide an adequately sized and configured airfield storm drainage system that supports the flying mission at JBA by repairing and upgrading the airfield stormwater infrastructure. Implementing the Proposed Action would meet JBA's need to improve water quality and comply with various water quality regulations.
