Abstract:

This Final EA has been prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act NEPA of 1969, as amended. The purpose of constructing the security fence is to implement antiterrorismforce protection measures and increase security at Schriever Air Force Base. The Proposed Action is to construct approximately six miles of perimeter fencing along the installations boundary. The security fence would be a seven-foot high chain-link fence with three strands of barbed wire angled outward at the top. This EA assesses the potential environmental impacts of constructing the security fence around the buffer zone at Schriever AFB. The No Action Alternative was also analyzed in the EA. Constructing the security fence would result in short-term but not significant impacts to air quality, and water, geological, and biological resources from construction activities. There would be no impacts to minority populations or low-income populations or children. Recycling of the old fence would not increase solid waste levels in the local landfill.
