Abstract : Six different deployment areas are under consideration for each of the three basing modes. The areas under consideration for the Hard Mobile Launcher in Random Movement are located in Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, New Mexico/Texas, and Washington; those for the Hard Mobile Launcher at Minuteman Facilities are situated in Missouri, Montana, North Dakota (two areas), South Dakota, and Wyoming/Nebraska/Colorado; and the areas for the Hard Silo in patterned Array are located in Arizona (three areas), California, New Mexico/Texas, and Wyoming. The number of missiles that have been analyzed in any given area ranges from 50 to 250. The total force to be eventually deployed could range from 250 to 1,000 missiles. The direct employment in any given area during the year of peak-construction activities could range from approximately 2,100 workers to more than 5,000, depending on the basing mode selected and the number of missiles deployed in the area. Potential project-induced environmental impacts in each area and for each basing mode are identified in the LEIS by the following categories: socio-economics, utilities, transportation, land use, cultural and paleontological resources, biological resources and threatened and endangered species, air quality and noise, water resources, and geology and soils.
