Pagination or Media Count:
This finding, and the analysis upon which it is based, was prepared pursuant to the Presidents Council on Environmental Quality CEQ regulations for implementing the procedural provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act NEPA and its implementing regulations as promulgated at 40 Code of Federal Regulations CFR Part 1500 40 CFR 1500-1508 plus U.S. Air Force Environmental Impact Analysis Process as promulgated at 32 CFR Part 989 The Department of the Air Force has conducted a Range Environmental Assessment REA of the potential environmental consequences of Test Area C-52 Complex operations at Eglin Air Force Base AFB, Florida. That July 2014 REA is hereby incorporated by reference into this finding. The purpose ofthe Proposed Action is to allow quick and efficient processing of mission programs that request access to the C-52 Complex during routine and crisis situations. The Proposed Action is needed to updatevalidate the current approval process for routine military users of the C-52 Complex, and to provide a quick response to priority needs during war or other significant military involvement. Since the last NEPA analysis of C-52 Complex operations, which was conducted in 1999, C-52 Complex operations have changed as a result of engagement in wars, development of new technologies, and changes in associated Eglin AFB mission activities. By updating the environmental impact analysis for C-52 Complex operations to address mission and other changes that have occurred since the last analysis, the attached REA allows more streamlined and accurate environmental reviewapproval of C-52 Complex mission requests.
