Abstract:

This Environmental Assessment was prepared by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Tulsa District in response to a request by the U.S. Air Force. The action to be assessed involves a troop realignment at Sheppard AFB, Wichita Falls, Texas. Approximately 2,300 military personnel will be transferred to that base over an approximate three year period. Approximately 88,000,000 worth of construction will be required to accommodate the realignment requirements. Impacts will be generated by the construction activity and subsequently by the increased population and training activities. An estimated peak population increase of approximately 4,800 persons is expected in the third year of implementation. This will then decline slightly approximately 4,600 persons whose presence is attributable to the implementation of this action.
