The purpose of the Proposed Action is to provide a facility adequate to meet USAPATs mission requirements. USAPAT currently occupies Building 1778, a temporary facility of approximately 6,900 square feet SF that was built in 1988 to accommodate a small detachment of Soldiers. USAPAT is now a much larger organization with more than 70 personnel assigned to JBA. The size, configuration, and condition of Building 1778 are inadequate to meet USAPATs mission requirements. A larger, modern facility is needed so that the battalion can train properly and conduct its mission responses unhampered. The phone lines are analog, there are not enough LAN ports in the building, both male and female latrines are inadequate, and heating and air conditioning run off three separate units that are antiquated and prone to breaking down at seasonal changes. Under the No Action Alternative, no new facility would be constructed and the USAPAT functions at JBA would continue to operate out of Building 1778. This EA has been prepared to evaluate the Proposed Action and the No Action Alternative. All resources are considered in the impact analysis.
