Abstract : In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 (42 U.S. Code [USC} 4321 et seq.), and pursuant to the Council on Environmental Quality's Regulations for Implementing the Procedural Provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] Parts 1500-1508, as of July 1986), and Air Force regulations for the Environmental Impact Analysis Process (32 CFR 989), 88th Air Base Wing (ABW) Civil Engineer Directorate, Asset Management Division prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) for the glide slope and clear zone obstructions at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB), Ohio. This EA is incorporated by reference into this finding. The Air Force identified the need to remove obstacles within the glide slope and clear zones (CZs) at WPAFB in order to protect human health and safety by providing adequate clearance for aircraft operations. The existing vegetative overstory is obstructing the primary surface area, CZs, transitional areas, and glide slopes for both runways at WPAFB. The purpose of the project is to protect human health and safety by removing and pruning vegetation in 18 identified sites located in three distinct areas: Wright Memorial, Riverview, and Sandhill.
