Abstract : The Air Force proposes to remove and replace approximately 11,000 linear feet of existing underground fiberglass jet fuel transfer line with new piping suitable for jet fuel. The diameter of the new pipeline would be six inches \201same as the existing jet fuel transfer line\202. The replacement fuel transfer line would be an in-kind replacement and located primarily within the same alignment on either side of Runway 12/30. The purpose of the action is to replace the existing fiberglass jet fuel transfer line and avoid failure of the pipeline. The replacement pipeline is needed to continue providing fuel to operating tanks that service aircraft under the responsibility of the Air Force and other agencies. The Proposed Action to replace the jet fuel transfer line at Tinker AFB is being evaluated in this EA. Environmental resources evaluated in this impact analysis are: biological resources; cultural resources; geologic resources and soils; hazardous materials and wastes; and water resources \201floodplains and wetlands\202.
