Abstract:

This statement assesses the potential environmental impacts from the proposed relocation of the 37th TFW and other tactical force structure actions at Tonopah Test Range TTR NV, Nellis AFB NV, Holloman AFB NM and effected communities. The relocation of the 37th TFW from TTR will result in significant adverse socioeconomic impacts that also result in moderate land-use impacts in the vicinity of Tonopah NV. Significant increases in noise associated with modification of an existing Military Training Route MTR in southeastern New Mexico and western Texas are expected under two alternatives while all remaining impacts to Holloman AFB are negligible or beneficial under all three alternatives. Impacts on resources in the vicinity of Nellis AFB are generally negligible under all alternatives with the exception of an adverse increase in Base water-supply demand under the Holloman-Nellis alternative.
