Abstract:

The U.S. Air Force USAF has recently updated the Integrated Natural Resources Management Plan INRMP for Kirtland Air Force Base AFB. The INRMP provides natural resources management strategies for Kirtland AFB. The USAF prepared the Environmental Assessment EA to identify and evaluate potential environmental impacts of implementing the updated INRMP at Kirtland AFB. The EA was prepared in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 NEPA 42 United States Code U.S.C. 4321-4347, as amended, and the Council on Environmental Qualitys CEQ Regulations for Implementing the Procedural Provisions of NEPA 40 Code of Federal Regulations Parts 1500-1508. The INRMP is consistent with the Sikes Act Improvement Act of 1997 SAIA, as amended through 2010 16 U.S.C. 670a et seq., which requires the preparation, implementation, update, and review of an INRMP for each military installation in the United States and its territories with significant natural resources. Based on the analysis contained in the Environmental Assessment Addressing Implementation of the Integrated Natural Resources Management Plan for Kirtland Air Force Base, which is herewith incorporated by reference, the USAF has determined that the Proposed Action has the potential to result in less than significant adverse environmental impacts.
