Abstract:

On October 2, 1981, the President announced his decision to cancel the M-X Multiple Protective Shelter MPS basing system. The Air Force was, at that time, working to prepare a Final Environmental Impact Statement FEIS for the MPS site selection process. This preliminary FEIS captures the environmental data and analysis in the document that was nearing completion when the President decided to deploy the M-X system in a different manner. The environmental technical report deals with impacts and constraints on urban growth that may result from M-X construction, and the mitigations to alleviate these impacts and constraints. Land area requirements are also forecast on a county level. Construction and operation of the M-X system would require a large area of land to be developed for urban purposes residential, commercial, industrial, institutional and roadways. Existing cities and towns would experience increased urbanization. Originator-supplied key words include MX missiles, Civilian population, Land use, Nevada, Utah, Texas, New Mexico.
