Abstract : Nellis AFB proposes to implement the full WINDO program infrastructure improvements for 2005 to 2006 that include repair, maintenance, installation, renovation, construction, and demolition at Nellis AFB, Nevada Test and Training Range (NTTR) and associated facilities, Creech AFB (formerly Indian Springs Air Force Auxiliary Field), and Tonopah Test Range (TTR). This WINDO program includes projects identified as necessary for Nellis AFB to achieve its myriad test, training, and evaluation missions, both now and into the future. As such, the proposed action comprises the preferred alternative as defined under 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 1502.14(e). By taking a comprehensive WINDO approach to planning and implementing the infrastructure improvements over 2 years (later part of 2005 to 2006), Nellis AFB would ensure that these goals are not only achieved, but also maximized. The WINDO environment impact analysis process (EIAP) will be revisited in 2008 to make adjustments to the planning process based on any changes in mission requirements or identified gaps in capabilities. As necessary, these adjustments will be evaluated under EIAP and addressed at that time.
