Abstract : This environmental assessment (EA) evaluates the potential environmental impacts of privatization of the Eagle Heights Housing Area at Dover AFB. It has been determined that privatization of the housing areas is a viable option because the housing area meets the required criteria for privatization. This EA has been prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act to analyze the potential environmental consequences of the Proposed Action Alternative 1, and the No-Action Alternative. As part of the privatization action, the Proposed Action would include demolition of 1 ,010 units and construction of 768 units; the 212 units that are currently being constructed would remain in place. The housing units would be conveyed to the contractor; however, the land would remain Air Force property. Under Alternative 1, 869 units would be demolished, 627 units would be constructed, and 141 units would be renovated. The 212 units currently being constructed would remain in place. Under the No-Action Alternative, the Air Force would not privatize MFH at Dover AFB. The Air Force would continue to be responsible for providing, operating, and maintaining the MFH units and the Air Force would continue to incur costs associated with these responsibilities. Any funding required to complete renovations to upgrade substandard housing would continue to be the responsibility of the Air Force. Any required demolition of existing units and construction of new housing units would also be the responsibility of the Air Force. The environmental resources potentially affected by the Proposed Action are utilities (solid waste) hazardous materials management, hazardous waste management, Environmental Restoration Program sites, storage tanks, pesticide usage, asbestos-containing material, lead-based paint, soils and geology, water resources, air quality, noise, and biological resources.
