Abstract : The proposed action consists of construction of approximately 2.5 miles of pipe to supplement water supplies used by the installation during the summer months when water needs are greatest. The pipeline installation is a condition of a Memorandum of Understanding signed between the California Department of Health Services (CDHS) and Travis Air Force Base because of a Notice of Violation issued to Travis by the CDHS. Water is currently supplied to the installation from the City of Vallejo, California. The proposed waterline will provide increased water flows from wells located on the installation's golf course. The pipeline is located in agricultural areas located north of the base. Two alternatives are considered in the environmental assessment. The No-Action Alternative will not change the quantity of water that is available to the installation. The Preferred Alternative, which consists of construction of new 18-inch-diameter water pipeline, would provide enough water from the wells to meet current and future water needs. The project also fulfills the requirements of the Memorandum of Understanding signed between the base and the CDHS.
