Abstract : The 412th Civil Engineer Group (412 CEG) proposes the ongoing demolition and disposal of buildings and facilities on Edwards AFB, California. The project is needed for the following reasons: the buildings are no longer used; the buildings are in the way of new construction; the buildings pose a health and safety hazard; the buildings are uneconomical to maintain; or the buildings are obsolete in function. This Environmental Assessment (EA) documents the analysis of the actions required to demolish buildings and facilities at Edwards AFB. The EA evaluates and addresses 143 buildings and facilities at Edwards AFB planned or proposed for demolition and disposal in the reasonably foreseeable future. This EA fulfills the requirements for compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations Parts 1500-1508, and Air Force Instruction 32-7061, which are the applicable implementing regulations for NEPA. The EA analyzes the potential environmental consequences of activities associated with the demolition, renovation and stabilization of buildings basewide. Environmental protection measures are also incorporated into the EA to reduce potential adverse environmental impacts to less than significant. Edwards AFB has considered all potential impacts of Alternative A (Proposed Action-Building Demolition), Alternative B (Building Renovation), Alternative C (Building Stabilization) and Alternative D (No Action Alternative).
