Abstract:

The 21st EOD WMD proposes to demolish three current buildings, construct four new facilities, and construct two new shot pads with berms. All of the buildings proposed for demolition are currently unoccupied or used by personnel. The 21st EOD WMD would also expand the current compound from 90 acres to approximately 470 acres to accommodate personnel growth and training requirements. This expansion would accommodate the two new shot pads and an assessment and selection site, which would include a Leadership Reaction Course, 14 mile running track, and obstacle course. The analysis in this EA addresses the Proposed Action, the No Action Alternative, and alternatives considered but eliminated from detailed analysis. The EA will help determine whether a Finding of No Significant Impact FONSI can be prepared or whether an Environmental Impact Statement is needed.
