Abstract:

The 82d Training Wing 82 TRW proposes to modify an existing drainage ditch northeast of building 1360 which continues to runway 1735. and then moves east approximately 1630 feet towards Taxiway D. This would include removing 14 existing headwalls and constructing and enclosing the system underground by using a buried system of pipes and inlets. This Environmental Assessment EA is an evaluation of the proposal to modify the existing or migrating through the airfield which poses a safety concern for flying operations, unclogs the drainage ditch by allowing the water to flow down a gradient, and eliminates the effects of standing water and erosion due to being exposed to the elements.
