Abstract:

The U.S. Air Force USAF proposes to construct and operate a septic system for disposal of sanitary wastewater at New Boston Air Force Station NBAFS, New Hampshire. The proposed action will eliminate the need for a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System NPDES permit. The proposed action would occur in and adjacent to the Operations Area in the northeast portion of the station. Potential impacts to the natural and human environment associated with construction and operation of the septic system at NBAFS are assessed in the accompanying Environmental Assessment EA, entitled Environmental Assessment for Construction and Operation of a Septic System at New Boston Air Force Station, New Hampshire. The EA was prepared in accordance with specific tasks and procedures of the USAF Environmental Impact Analysis Process EIAP Air Force Instruction 32-7061, as it applies to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 Public Law 91-190, 42 U.S.C. Sections 4321-4347. The EA evaluates the environmental consequences of the proposed action and the no-action alternative i.e., continuing to use the existing wastewater treatment plant. The assessment evaluates the potential for impacts to air quality, noise levels, topography, geology, soils, water resources, ecological resources including threatened and endangered species and wetlands, cultural resources, land use, recreation, visual resources, socioeconomics, and health and safety.
