Abstract:

Due to the changing international political scene and the resultant shift toward a reduction in defense spending, the Department of Defense must realign and reduce its military forces pursuant to the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Act of 1990 Public Law 101 -510, Title XXIX. As a requirement of this law, the 940th ARG with its 1 0 KC-1 35E aircraft must realign from Mather AFB, California, which is scheduled to close in 1993, to McClellan AFB, California. This EA analyzes the potential environmental impacts from the realignment. As part of the realignment the Air Force is planning construction of 5 new buildings, 13 housing duplexes, an addition to 1 existing building, a hydrant fueling system, renovation to 14 existing facilities for interim and permanent use, and the demolition of 13 Wherry Housing units. Alternatives include the use of fuel trucks to fuel and defuel the aircraft instead of the hydrant fueling system Fuel Truck Alternative, and siting the Squadron Operations Facility at three possible locations Squadron OperationsGroup Headquarters Alternatives A, 8, and C. The No-Action Alternative would conflict with the Defense Bass Closure and Realignment Act of 1990 and, therefore, cannot be implemented without a change in the law. Construction activities for the Proposed Action and alternatives would take place on a concrete aircraft parking apron, or on areas previously disturbed by past grading activities, except for less than 10 acres of undisturbed land required for new facilities.
