Abstract:

This report presents the results of the Environmental Assessment EA, which evaluates the potential environmental effects associated with the jet fuel distribution system on Edwards Air Force Base AFB. This EA was requested by the 95th Air Base Wing, Environmental Management Directorate at Edwards AFB, California, and was conducted by JT3CH2M HILL, from October 2007 through January 2009. Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 NEPA, this EA has been prepared to analyze the potential environmental consequences of the proposed action. The proposed project would be an overhaul of the existing jet fuel distribution system to ensure two modes of distrubution with the option for a third at all times, then maintaining the system. The jet fuel distribution allows the flight test center to continue all flight operations and thus needs to be maintained to ensure the integral mission of EAFB as the premiere flight test center.
