Abstract:

Construction of a new Resistance Training Facility is proposed to replace current deteriorating facilities and to consolidate current dispersed training functions for Survival School Resistance Training operations. The proposed location is east of the current facility within the Resistance Training compound located in the southern portion of Fairchild Air Force Base. Tiein of existing utilities is planned including a new connection to the sanitary sewer. This environmental analysis assesses potential effects to environmental and infrastructure elements. One alternative was eliminated from detailed analysis due to proposed cost and potential effects to wetlands. Assessment of two alternatives, the proposed action and no action was completed. The result of the analysis is that no significant impacts would result from implementation of the Proposed Action or the No-Action Alternative. The Proposed Action is more preferred as it improves operations without incurring significant impacts. The No Action Alternative is not preferred due to increasing liability in cost to operate a deteriorating facility and not satisfying an identified need to upgrade the current sanitation service.
