Abstract:

Pursuant to provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act NEPA , 42 U.S . Code 4321 et seq , implementing Council on Environmental Quality CEQ Regulations, 40 Code of Federal Regulations CFR 1500-1508, and 32 CFR Part 989, Environmental Impacr Analysis Process EIAP, the U.S. Air Force Air Force conducted an assessment of the potential environmental consequences of constructing a storage facility, upgrading the perimeter security fence and demolishing the existing storage shed. This Env Environmental ental Assessment EA, Construction of Antenna Parts Storage Facility, Perimeter Fence Upgrade and Demolition of Storage Shed, Hawk insvil le Air Force Space Surveillance Station AFSSS, GA, incorporated by reference in this finding, considers the potential impacts of the Proposed Actions on the natural and human environments. Proposed Action and Alternatives. The Proposed Actions are to construct a new antenna parts storage facility, upgrade the existing barbed wire perimeter fence w ith an eight-foot high chain li nk fence with an outrigger on the top and demolish the existi ng storage shed. The No Action Alternat ive would be to not construct the storage facility, not to upgrade the perimeter fence and not to demolish the storage shed. Summary of Findings. Geological Resources Implementing the Actions will not impact the geology of the Installation but will have minor impacts on topography and soils. Impacts to geological resources will not occur because the soil depths exceed the drilling depth along the perimeter of the fence boundary. Activities associated with the three projects will disturb soils from boring, grading, and compaction by equipment during demolition and construction activities but will not be signifitcant.
