Abstract : Pursuant to the Council on Environmental Quality regulations for implementing the procedural provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR]1500- 1508), Department of Defense Directive 6050.1 and Air Force Regulation 32 CFR Part 989, the 88th Civil Engineer Directorate, Environmental Management Division has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) to identifY and assess potential effects of the expansion of existing facilities, the construction of new facilities, and the construction of a remote field training site at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (WP AFB), Ohio. This EA is incorporated by reference into this finding. The 2005 Defense Base Realignment and Closure (BRA C) Commission mandates realigning several DoD missions with similar focus to WP AFB. Additional facilities are needed to support a number of missions that are being relocated to WP AFB. This EA evaluates the impacts of seven proposed actions: Expeditionary Medical Support (EMEDS) field training site, vivarium for research animals, entomology laboratory, waste storage facility, pipeline student dormitory for airmen attending specialized training at the Human Performance Wing (HPW), religious education center addition, and the relocation of the Air Force Research Laboratory/Sensors Directorate (AFRL/SN) functions from Rome Laboratories, New York, and Hanscom AFB, Massachusetts. The construction of the HPW complex (and associated infrastructure upgrades) to house the majority of the inbound BRAC missions was addressed in a separate EA (Environmental Assessment for Construction of BRAC Infrastructure Upgrades and the Human Performance Wing Complex in the Area B Hilltop District).
