Abstract:

The purpose of the proposed action is to demolish 608 square feet of excess facility space in building 934, known as the booster station, by CES contract in FY 06. Work includes removal of all plumbing, pumps and equipment, removal of the water lines from the water main into the building, replacement of the 14 tees on the water main with a straight piece of pipe, maintain the existing check valve and control valve on the water main with an accessible manhole mercury, asbestos and lead-based paint abatement and removal building demolition, excavation, slab removal, backfill, grading, removal of debris, and site restoration. The Grand Forks AFB Facilities Board agenda includes the demolition of 934, and demolition of 934 is proposed as a CES project. Project number JFSD200192 has been assigned. A new booster station was installed at the Grand Forks airport in 1999. The old booster station in Grand Forks, building 935, was demolished in 2000. The airport booster station does not need building 934 to function. Building 934 will not work without the airport booster station since building 935 was demolished. The city has installed a new clear well pumping station that has the ability to pump water to the base if the airport booster station fails. Building 934 presents a potential security risk because of the access to the base water supply at that point.
