Abstract:

The purpose of the proposed action is to construct a multi-cube storage building and a maintenanceinspection building on Columbus AFB. This EA evaluates the Proposed Action, Alternative Actions, the No Action Alternative and the cumulative impacts. The Alternative Actions were dismissed because of increased maintenance costs, safety and security issues. The No Action Alternative would result in no changes to the environment, but would also not provide basic storage, and maintenanceinspection of munitions. Resources considered in the impact analysis were land use, air quality, hazardous materials and wastes, surface water, wetlands, flood plains, wildlife, vegetation, and environmental justice. No significant impacts would result from the Proposed Action, Alternative Action, or No Action Alternative, nor would there be any cumulative impacts from other construction actions announced for Columbus AFB.
