Abstract:

Final Range Environmental Assessment for Test Areas C-87 and D-51 at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida. Purpose and Need REA statute 1.2, pages 1-1 to 1-2 TAs C-87 and D-51 are the primary sites used by the Naval School Explosive Ordnance Disposal NAVSCOLEOD to conduct basic explosive ordnance disposal EOD training and advanced improvised explosive device JED training. The schools mission is to train officers and enlisted members of the Navy, Marine Corps, Army, and Air Force as well as certain DoD civilian and international military personnel on the most current EODJED practices. The last NEPA analyses of TAs C-87 and D-51 operations were conducted in 2002 and 2008 and since that time numerous changes have occurred. Some of these changes include the types of training operations to be conducted, new environmental regulations in place, and increased expansion of residential communities near installation boundaries. Under the Proposed Action, the Navy would implement a new level of training activity at the NAVSCOLEOD School to meet their current and projected plans. By updating the environmental analysis, it wi ll allow quick and efficient processing of future andor high priority requests if these actions are determined to be similar in scope and magnitude as analyzed within this REA.
