Environmental impact statement
NAVAL FACILITIES ENGINEERING COMMAND SAN DIEGO CA
Pagination or Media Count:
The purpose of the proposed action is to relocate four E-2 aircraft squadrons and related support personnel, equipment, and functions from NAS Miramar to one of three alternative naval bases in California. The proposed action includes siting 16 E-2 aircraft, relocating 988 associated personnel and their families, and expanding or constructing facilities to support aircraft and personnel, and to provide associated training functions. In addition to the increased staffing and equipment levels, there would be an increase in Navy training activities and an increase in flight operations at the receiving installation. The three installations considered for the receiving base are Naval Air Weapons Station NAWS Point Mugu, Naval Air Station NAS Lemoore, and Naval Air Facility NAF El Centro. This EIS evaluates the potential environmental impacts that may result from constructing andor operating airfield, training, maintenance and personnel support facilities required to carry on the E-2 mission at the three alternative base locations. The EIS analyzes potential environmental impacts of the proposed action on biological resources, hydrologysurface water quality, land use and airspace, socioeconomics, traffic and circulation, air quality, noise, aesthetics and visual resources, utilities and services, cultural resources, public health and safety, and hazardous materials and wastes. Potentially significant and mitigable environmental impacts include impacts to air quality, schools, and cultural resources at NAWS Point Mugu, air quality, and schools at NAS Lemoore, and biological resources, noiseland use compatibility, and exceedence of imaginary surfaces at NAF El Centro. Unavoidable adverse impacts have not been identified.
