Abstract : The Missile Defense Agency prepared this Supplemental Environmental Assessment (SEA) to update the analysis of liquid propellant target (LPT) missile launches and supporting activities at Wake Island contained in the Wake Island Launch Center (WILC) SEA (US Army Space and Missile Command, 1999) which is incorporated by reference, and serves as a planning tool to assist MDA in meeting its mission objectives. This SEA discusses the following seven resource areas that have the potential for impact resulting from the proposed action: air quality, biological resources, cultural resources, hazardous materials/waste, health and safety, noise and transportation. Cumulative impacts are those that result when impacts of an action are combined with the impacts of past, present, and reasonably foreseeable actions at a location. Cumulative impacts were considered for each resource area and each alternative.
