Abstract:

The purpose of the Proposed Action is to manage the wetlands within the region of influence ROI so that it becomes less attractive to birds and other wildlife. For the purposes of the Proposed Action, the south end of runway EOR and southeastern corner area of the runway at Moody AFB, Georgia make up the ROI. The Proposed Action is needed because birds and other wildlife pose an increased birdwildlife aircraft strike hazard BASH risk to aircraft utilizing the Moody AFB airfield. ln support of the military mission, Moody AFB has implemented a BASH management program designed to minimize aircraft exposure to potentially hazardous wildlife strikes within the vicinity of the installation. However, due to the continued BASH risk associated with the ROI wetland areas, there is a need to improve current BASH management methods to minimize future BASH risk in these areas.
