Abstract:

This Environmental Assessment EA Supplement provides additional information and is a modification to the Final Environmental Assessment Armed Forces Reserve Center -- Fairchild Air Force Base, Washington, January 2007. This EA Supplement has been prepared because the original Base Realignment and Closure project did not include the DEPMEDS training area or additional military equipment parking MEP per the 1391 dated Oct 2010 and the potential impacts of construction of the parking area were not previously evaluated. If the DEPMEDS training area and MEP area is not constructed, the assigned units at the Fairchild Armed Forces Reserve Center will not be able to fulfill their mission requirements. Alternative locations on base were explored but were eliminated because of environmental constraints or insufficient acreage. The No Action Alternative, which is a non-viable alternative, provides contrast and comparison to the viable alternative and its relative environmental affects. No significant impacts would result from implementation of the Proposed Action or the No Action Alternative.
