Abstract : The USAF proposes to repair the approach lighting system at the north end of Runway 01/19 on Eglin AFB, Florida. Based on the age and condition of the existing runway approach lighting structures, repairing the approach lighting system at the north end of Runway 01/19 is required to provide a safe platform for maintenance and to bring the system into compliance, to the maximum extent feasible, with all federal, state, and local regulations/codes, and environmental and aviation requirements. For this Environmental Assessment (EA), seven action alternatives were considered. Design Alternatives 4, 5, and 7 are carried forward for detailed analysis. Design Alternatives 4, 5, and 7 meet the purpose of and need for the Proposed Action and meet the criteria determined by Eglin AFB as necessary to repair the approach runway lighting system, while minimizing potential impacts on water quality and wetlands and potential long-term impacts on runway operations from construction. This EA analyzes and documents potential environmental consequences associated with the Proposed Action and alternatives, including the No Action Alternative. The analyses presented in this EA indicate that implementation of the considered alternatives would not result in significant environmental impacts, and a Finding of No Significant Impact/Finding of No Practicable Alternative would be appropriate. If significant environmental issues were to be identified that could not be minimized to insignificant levels, an Environmental Impact Statement would be prepared or the Proposed Action would be abandoned and no action would be taken.
