Pursuant to Federal law, the U.S. Air Force proposes to convey 18.85 acres of the Mukilteo Tank Farm Property to the Port of Everett. Transfer of a 1.1-acre portion of the property to the Department of Commerce is in progress as a Federal-to-Federal agency transfer. This EA has been prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act NEPA and the Air Force Environmental Impact Analysis Process EIAP to analyze the potential environmental consequences of the conveyance of the Mukilteo Tank Farm Property. The conveyance of the Mukilteo Tank Farm Property is required by special legislation directing the Secretary of the U.S. Air Force to convey all right, title, and interest of this parcel to the Port of Everett Section 2866 of the Military Construction Authorization Act for Fiscal Year FY 2001, as amended by Section 2858 of the National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2002 Public Law 107-107. The Air Force uses the EIAP 30-day comment period to serve as the public review period for both NEPA and the Section 106 process. The Proposed Action involves the conveyance of the 18.85 acres of the Mukilteo Tank Farm Property, including any improvements thereon, to the Port of Everett. The Excess Property Alternative involves transfer of the 18.85 acres of real property to the General Services Administration, to arrange for the eventual conveyance of the property for the highest and best use using its authorities. This alternative would occur should the transfer of the property be declined. No-Action Alternative would result in the U.S. Air Force retaining ownership of the property and maintaining existing conditions. Based on the analysis of the Proposed Action and alternatives, the Air Force has determined no significant impacts would occur to the following resource areas from the property transfer socioeconomics and environmental justice landshoreline use and aesthetics transportation hazardous materials and hazardous waste.
