The 319 CES is proposing to construct a new fire station, ATC tower, and RAPCON at Grand Forks AFB. Subsequently, the old fire station and control tower would be demolished. This EA has been prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 Council on Environmental Quality, and Air Force Environmental Impact Analysis Process. The proposed action would be implemented within the airfield operations area on Grand Forks AFB. Relevant resources evaluated in this EA include air quality, soil resources, water resources biological resources, cultural resources, noise, socioeconomics, environmental justice transportation, and environmental programs. The 319 CES and Headquarters Air Mobility Command conducted extensive site surveys to evaluate alternatives for the action. Alternate sitings for the fire station and ATC tower RAPCON were considered, but these alternatives did not meet the selection criteria and were eliminated from further consideration. In addition to the analysis of potential impacts from implementation of the proposed action and no action alternative, the EA evaluates cumulative impacts of past, present, and reasonably foreseeable future actions relevant to the proposed action.
