Abstract:

It is proposed that the 63rd Military Airlift Wing MAW be moved from Norton Air Force Base in California and reassigned to the existing 62nd MAW at McChord Air Force Base in Tacoma, Washington. In addition, the 445th MAW of the Air Force Reserves at Norton AFB would be combined with the 446th MAW at McChord. In the same time frame, the 36th Tactical Airlift Squadron TAS and the 318th Fighter Interceptor Squadron FIS at McChord would be deactivated. Some Facility construction and modification projects would be associated with these changes. This environmental assessment evaluates the potential environmental impacts of the proposed action.
