This Phase I Environmental Baseline Survey report was prepared to support the proposed lease of 35 acres within an approximately 86-acre tract hereafter referred to as subject property owned by Nellis Air Force Base AFB to a contractor for the construction and operation of a Stormwater Detention System SDS and relocation of Military Family Housing MFH. Easements for stormwater channels will also be granted. The SDS will be used as a primary flood control detention system for the proposed improvements to the Manch Manor base housing project. The property in consideration is a portion of Area III, and is located near the northwestern boundary of Nellis AFB, Clark County, Nevada see Figures 1 and 2, Appendix B.
