Abstract : Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), as amended, the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations implementing the act (40 CFR 1500-1508), Department of Defense (DoD) Directive 6050.1 [Environmental Effects in the United States of DoD Actions (30 July 1979)], and the current version of the Air Force Environmental Impact Analysis Process (EIAP) (32 CFR Part 989)] implementing these regulations, the 20th Fighter Wing at Shaw AFB has conducted an Environmental Assessment for Implementation of the WINDO Plan for Shaw AFB, South Carolina. This action is needed to meet major, near-term facilities requirements identified in the WINDO Plan. The purpose of the WINDO is to identify needed facilities and improve the process of facility planning in support of the base missions. It assists in identifying long-term priorities and goals of the base and translating them into facility and infrastructure objectives; optimizing investments in support of the mission requirements of the base; and efficiently using and/or protecting resources. The WINDO ensures that the Wing Commander, Shaw AFB, and Air Combat Command (ACC) have a common set of infrastructure goals and priorities that will enable continued operations at the base. The plan is needed to guide future growth, ensure orderly development of the base over time, and identify opportunities to efficiently support current and new missions so that Shaw AFB remains an essential Air Force installation.
