Abstract:

The Proposed Action would create a mock railway that would enhance target, opposition force, and friendly force identification by aircrews who are training with ordnance deliveries. Impacts from constructing, operating, and maintaining the railway included minor increases in stormwater runoff and respective soil erosion, potential minor injury to cattle, and potential soil contamination by organic compounds from railroad ties. The wooden railway ties would be susceptible to burning by wildfires and prescribed burns and would require replacement of some of the ties every two to three years.
