Abstract:

The current North MOUT Target Array provides military training in an urban environment. The proposed action adds buildings to the MOUT anywhere within a defined perimeter, adds portable pop-up targets, and adds new training to include live fire by small arms and crew-served weapons. The alternative action adds buildings to the MOUT anywhere within a smaller defined perimeter, does not add pop-up targets, and does not add new training. The no action alternative retains the current buildings and training. Pop-up targets are not added. New training is not added. Environmental impacts are minimal. Both the proposed action and alternative action recognize the potential for noxious weeds along an access road as a result of adding shell and clay material for road stabilization. Both the proposed action and alternative action recognize that there is a potential for the wooden roofs on the new mock buildings to catch on fire during prescribed burns and wildland fires.
