Abstract : This Environmental Assessment (EA) presents the potential environmental consequences associated with the construction of a new Fuze Experimentation Facility (FEF) and Fuze Industrial Facility (FIF) at Eglin Air Force Base (AFB), Florida (Figure 1-1). The FEF/FIF would provide the facilities and infrastructure for approximately 12 full-time Air Force Research Laboratory Munitions Directorate Fuzes Branch (AFRL/RWMF) personnel engaged in research, development, and testing of fuze technologies. This EA has been prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations implementing NEPA (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] 1500 1508), and Air Force regulations implementing NEPA procedures (32 CFR 989). The Air Force proposes to relocate the AFRL/RWMF personnel and activities from its current location in building 419 to two new facilities to be constructed in a nearby developed area directly southeast of the current building 419. Facilities would be single-story with reinforced concrete foundations, stone exterior and metal siding with insulation over filled cinderblock construction, and sloped standing seam metal roofs. Facilities would comply with Department of Defense (DoD) force protection requirements according to Unified Facilities Criteria. The total building construction area would be 9,700 square feet (ft2). Associated paved roads and parking totaling 43,800 ft2 would also be constructed to support the facilities. Existing substandard facilities totaling 8,800 ft2 would be demolished. For this EA, an overall project area
