Abstract : The purpose of the proposed action is to construct an airfield lighting vault facility. The existing airfield lighting vault was constructed in 1957 and cannot feasibly be repaired or altered to meet current UFC and safety criteria. GFAFB proposes to repair the airfield lighting system by replacing the existing airfield lighting vault with a new vault in an adjacent location. Total facility size should be approximately equal to or less than the total square footage of the existing facility (3,250 SF), while providing adequate space for all electrical components, circuitry, and safety clearances. The existing vault must remain in operation during the entire construction period of the new vault. There is a need to eliminate building 531 once the new facility is operational. Demolition of the old facility will be performed. Mission requirements, operational considerations, and location are incompatible with use by other components on base. Based on the Environmental Assessment performed for construction of an airfield lighting vault and demolition of building 531, no significant environmental impact is anticipated from the proposed action.
