Abstract : The purpose of the Proposed Action is to implement the General Plan for Schriever AFB. Goals of the General Plan are to achieve optimal land use planning, protect the natural and human environment, and plan for future mission growth. The Proposed Action includes construction projects to improve infrastructure (utilities and roads) and to construct new facilities identified in the General Plan. This EA identifies, describes, and evaluates the potential environmental impacts that may result from implementation of the five-year component of the General Plan (Alternative 1, the Preferred Alternative), implementation of the accelerated construction alternative (Alternative 2), and from the no action alternative. As appropriate, the affected environment and environmental consequences of the alternatives are described in terms of site-specific descriptions or a regional overview. Finally, the EA identifies measures to reduce impacts or best management practices (BMPs) to prevent or minimize environmental impacts, if required.
