Abstract : An environmental assessment was necessary to investigate the potential impact of the Improved Underground Ammunition Storage Program on the environment. The existing test site environment was reviewed, alternatives to the proposed action were considered, and environmental consequences of the proposed action were analyzed. Environmental consequences included effects of construction activities, excavations, and test explosion phenomena on human health and safety, structures, biota, geology, air and water quality, local ecology, socioeconomic factors, and cultural and historical resources. A Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) was submitted. Environmental assessment, Explosion effects, Underground ammunition storage
