Abstract:

The 436 Mission Support GroupServices Squadron, Dover Air Force Base, on behalf of a Morale, Welfare and Recreation MWR activity, the Dover AFB Aero Club, proposes to construct a 5900 square foot mixed use office, flight dispatch and maintenance facility in the southeast area of the base. Two alternatives were considered the proposed action and a no-action alternative. The construction activities would occur generally south of Taxiway Foxtrot in the vicinity of Building 1303, the present location of the Aero Club. This Environmental Assessment analyzes the potential effects to the natural and human environment that could result from implementation of the proposed action and the no-action alternative. The potential environmental effects from the implementation of the proposed action are those that would be associated with short-term land clearing, construction, utility connection and roadway replacement activities. Resources evaluated include water quality, biological resources, air quality, socioeconomic resources, historic or archaeological resources, safety and occupational health, and hazardous materials and substances. Direct and indirect effects were assessed for each environmental resource or issue, considering short-term and long-term project effects and cumulative impacts. Although construction and installation activities would affect the natural and human environment, most impacts would be temporary in nature with insignificant permanent impacts.
