Abstract : This Finding is based on an Environmental Assessment (EA) prepared by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Mobile District (Environmental Assessment, Realignment of Jenkins Armed Forces Reserve Center, Kirtland Air Force Base, New Mexico, BRAC 2005 dated May 2007). That EA analyzed the anticipated environmental impacts of the construction and operation of an Armed Forces Reserve Center (AFRC) on Kirtland AFB (KAFB). In accordance with the U.S. Air Force's (USAF) Environmental Impact Analysis Process (EIAP) rules, the Army EA was circulated for review at both KAFB and Air Force Materiel Command and it was determined that the EA satisfies USAF EIAP requirements for adoption. The 2005 amendments to the Defense Base Closure and Realignment (BRAC) Act of 1990 (BRAC 05) called for closure of the existing Jenkins AFRC compound in Albuquerque NM and relocation of the AFRC onto KAFB. Jenkins AFRC is currently located approximately one mile north of KAFB. Relocation is to be completed no later than September 2011. In addition to complying with BRAC, the new AFRC facilities will satisfy the following needs not being met at the existing site: compliance with current Anti-Terrorism and Force Protection standards, a facility layout that supports recent force structure and unit organizational changes, and adequate space for future expansion or consolidation.
