Abstract : This environmental assessment (EA) evaluates the potential environmental impacts of privatization of MFH at Travis AFB. It has been determined that privatization of the housing areas is a viable option because the housing areas meet 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 1,651 units construction of more than 400 units, and minor renovations (as necessary) of recently constructed units (built during the 1990s and 2002-2004) by a private contractor. The housing units would be conveyed to the contractor; however, the land would remain Air Force property. Under Alternative 1, the same activities as the Proposed Action would occur; however, 800 new units would be constructed. Under the No-Action Alternative, the Air Force would not privatize MFH at Travis 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 land use, aesthetics utilities (solid waste), hazardous materials management, hazardous waste management, storage tanks, pesticide usage, polychlorinated biphenyls, asbestos-containing material, lead-based paint and radon, geology and soils, water resources, air quality, noise, biological resources, cultural resources, and environmental justice.
