Abstract:

Dyess Air Force Base AFB in Taylor County Texas operates a Class B runway. Under the current Department of Defense DoD Unified Facilities Criteria UFC 3-260-01, Airfield and Heliport Planning and Design, a 1,000-foot runway lateral clearance zone is required for Class B runways. Because the airfield was established under previous standards, the northwest portion of the airfield is currently operating with a 750-foot runway lateral clearance zone. The purpose of the Proposed Action is to acquire land adjacent to the airfield on the northwest boundary without an outlay of funds in order to allow Dyess AFB to comply with the current UFC requirements for a 1,000-foot runway lateral clearance zone. This Environmental Assessment EA documents the potential environmental impacts resulting from implementing the Proposed Action.
