Abstract:

This EA describes the potential environmental consequences resulting from a proposal to construct a consolidated communications facility in the North Base Support Area of Langley AFB. Nine resource categories received a thorough evaluation to identify potential impacts. During work, minor and temporary negative impacts would be seen in air quality, noise, and safety. Minor impacts would also be felt in the biological wildlife, hazardous waste, and water resources. The placement of the communications facility at the proposed site would be consistent with the base General Plan, and the action is expected to improve the roads and transportation use in the area in the long-term. The action will lead to a temporary improvement in socioeconomics due to job creation, and this action and other related work would improve the aesthetic quality of the area. No long term environmental consequences are anticipated.
