Abstract : The action for this EIS consists of withdrawal of various organizational units from Norton AFB and their relocation primarily to March AFB. Other units would be relocated to McChord, Kirtland, Travis, Luke, and McClellan AFBs. The relocation actions will include transfers of personnel, aircraft, and various other equipment and material. The DEIS assesses the environmental impacts associated with the action. The substantive areas of potential environmental impact that are analyzed are air quality, water resources, earth resources, biotic resources, cultural and historic resources, noise, hazardous waste, accident potential zones, and socioeconomics. The DEIS describes the baseline conditions, potential environmental impacts (beneficial and adverse), and possible mitigations of adverse impacts. The Base Closure and Realignment Act specifically exempts this EIS from considering the need, purpose, or reasons for the withdrawal or alternatives for closure or realignment.
