Abstract:

The purpose of this action is to construct a new veterinary clinic. The facility would be sited and constructed to comply with U.S. Army provisions for location and operation of medical facilities. Veterinary clinic personnel and operations would relocate from the existing veterinary clinic. The existing veterinary clinic building would be used by another unit. This EA has been prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act to analyze the potential environmental consequences of the Proposed Action. Two alternatives were examined the Proposed Action and the No-Action Alternative. The Proposed Action is to construct the new veterinary clinic. The No-Action Alternative involves continuing to operate the veterinary clinic at its current location. The environmental resources potentially affected by the Proposed Action are land use aesthetics, medicalbiohazardous waste, geology and soils, water resources, air quality, and cultural resources. Based on the nature of the activities that would occur under the Proposed Action and No-Action Alternative, the Air Force has determined that minimal or no adverse effects to the above resources are anticipated.
