Abstract : The 82d Training Wing (82 TRW) proposes to modify an existing drainage ditch northeast of building 1360 which continues to runway 17/35. and then moves east approximately 1630 feet towards Taxiway D. This would include removing 14 existing headwalls and constructing and enclosing the system underground by using a buried system of pipes and inlets. This Environmental Assessment (EA) is an evaluation of the proposal to modify the existing or migrating through the airfield which poses a safety concern for flying operations, unclogs the drainage ditch by allowing the water to flow down a gradient, and eliminates the effects of standing water and erosion due to being exposed to the elements.
