Dover Air Force Base DAFB is located in Kent County, Delaware. The base is situated 3.5 miles southeast of the center of Dover, Delaware, the state capital. The base covers approximately 3,902 acres of land area including annexes, easements, and leased property. DAFB has two active airfields. The north-south airfield at DAFB divides the main Base into two primary sections. Open space, recreational areas, and limited amounts of industrial uses are located east of the airfield. The land uses west of the airfield and east of U.S. Route 113 are industrial, airfield operations, administrative, community, medical, and some unaccompanied personnel housing. Eagle Heights Military Family House MFH, temporary lodging quarters, a golf course, and additional unaccompanied personnel housing are located west of U.S. Route 113 and east of St. Jones River. The surrounding areas consist primarily of cropland and wetlands, with the Saint Jones River running adjacent to the southwestern corner of the base. The project identified in the AF Form 813 would construct a 17,200 sq foot Outdoor Recreation and a 7,000 sq foot Skills Center Facility. The new facility will be built where the demolished Airmans Leadership School was located. The Joint Personal Effects Depot and the Armed Forces Medical Examiner System are being relocated to DAFB and will displacing the Outdoor Recreation and Skills Center. The new Joint Personal Effects Depot and the Armed Forces Medical Examiner System has been previously evaluated for environmental impacts. See figure 1 for the new location of the facility.
