Pursuant to the Council on Environmental Quality regulations for implementing the procedural provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act 40 Code of Federal Regulations 1500 1508, 32 CFR Part 989, and Department of Defense Directive 6050.1, the Department of the Air Force has conducted an Environmental Assessment EA of the probable environmental consequences resulting from constructing and operating two officeequipment facilities and a new latrine facility on Range A-73 at Eglin Air Force Base AFB, Florida. The scope of the original proposed action found in EA, RCS 95-665, at Appendix A has changed. The original proposed action was for Vitro, Inc, the Range Maintenance contractor at that time, to construct a 9000 square foot concrete facility. The new proposed action is for the construction of a 3000 square foot concrete facility at TS A-30, 3000 square foot concrete facility at the radar site between TS A-30 and TS A-31 on Range A- 73, and the installation of a latrine at TS A-31. The proposed latrine would be a 10 x 14 framed aluminum Stuff Buster type building with aluminum roof to replace the old trailer facility. The proposed action would not include any improvements to existing roads or parking areas at the proposed 3000 square foot radar tower site or the latrine site. The proposed action would include a gravel parking area adjacent to the 3000 square foot facility at TS A-30. No additional paved employee parking is required at this time. The area affected by the proposed action is located in an air quality attainment region. The area supports no threatened or endangered species and contains no surface water, wetlands, or flood plains. No lead-based paints LBP, asbestos containing materials ACM, underground storage tanks, or Environmental Restoration Program remediation sites or areas of concern exist at the site.
