Abstract:

This supplement amends the Final Environmental Impact Statement issued in January 1975. The action proposed in the 1975 EIS was to construct and operate an OTH-B radar System in Maine, initially covering a 60 degree sector, and later expanded to cover 180 degrees . The action proposed in this supplement is to locate the integrated operations, maintenance, and security facility at Bangor International Airport, a location not considered in the 1975 EIS. Alternatives are locating at Bucks Harbor the maintenance and security personnel who support the Washington County receiver site, but leaving the maintenance and security personnel for the operations center and the Somerset County transmitter site with the operations personnel at Bangor International Airport and not deploying either the 60 degree or the 180 degree system.
