Abstract : This Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) was prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), the President's Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations implementing NEPA ( 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 1500-1508); and the Environmental Impact Analysis Process, 32 CFR 989. The decision in this FONSI is based on information contained in the Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Construction of a Base Civil Engineer Complex, Travis Air Force Base (AFB), California, which is hereby incorporated by reference. The purpose of the EA was to determine the extent of environmental impacts that might result from the construction and operation of a Base Civil Engineering (BCE) Complex and to evaluate whether those impacts, if any, would be significant. Currently, BCE functions are dispersed throughout fifty-five mostly outdated, difficult to maintain, substandard facilities. The purpose of the proposed action is to consolidate BCE functions into a modem, unified complex resulting in more efficient operations, lower maintenance costs and reduced energy consumption by design meeting Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver Standards.
