Abstract:

This Environmental Assessment EA describes the potential environmental consequences resulting from a proposal to demolish six facilities at Fairchild Air Force Base AFB, Washington. ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ANALYSIS PROCESS. This EA has been prepared by the United States Air Force Air Force in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act NEPA of 1969, 42 United States Code USC 4321-4347, Council on Environmental Quality CEQ Regulations for Implementing the Procedural Provisions of NEPA 40 Code of Federal Regulations CFR statute 1500-1508, and 32 CFR Part 989, et seq., Environmental Impact Analysis Process formerly known as Air Force Instruction AFI 32-7061. PURPOSE AND NEED FOR ACTION. The purpose of this action is to demolish six facilities in the Munitions Storage Area MSA at Fairchild AFB. These facilities were constructed between 1952 and 1956. Currently, these facilities are not considered mission critical and are empty or underutilized. The unique construction and infrastructure of these facilities, as well as their location in a limited access area, would make it difficult to rehabilitate or renovate these facilities to another purpose. In addition, the demolition of these facilities will contribute to the Air Force-wide demolition goal to reduce the facility footprint 20 percent between Fiscal Year FY 2008 and FY 2020.
