Abstract:

The 319 ARW has determined that it is necessary to upgrade the existing security perimeter road and a portion of the security perimeter fence at Grand Forks AFB. The Proposed Action is needed to improve operations and security at the Base, ensuring that unauthorized entry is controlled via an adequate perimeter fence system, and that Security Forces personnel can access all segments of the Base defensive perimeter, at all times, on a safe, functional, perimeter road. The Proposed Action includes replacing approximately 4.2 miles of three-strand barbed wire perimeter fence at the northern end of the airfield, and upgrading the entire length of the existing perimeter road. Approximately five low-water wetland crossings would be constructed and one culvert would be installed. This EA has been prepared to evaluate the Proposed Action and alternatives, including the No Action Alternative, and to aid in determining whether an Environmental Impact Statement EIS is needed. Resources that are considered in the impact analysis are geological resources, water resources biological resources, and cultural resources. The EA will be made available to the public upon completion.
