Environmental Assessment for the Outgrant of Real Estate and Construction of JP-8 Pipeline and Receiving Facility at Travis Air Force Base
AIR MOBILITY COMMAND SCOTT AFB IL
Pagination or Media Count:
The existing JP-8 distribution and dispensation infrastructure at Travis AFB is nearing capacity and is presently served by approximately 7 miles of USAF-owned and operated off-base pipeline. These identified security and capacity shortfalls potentially limit the ability to maintain and operate base-assigned and other aircraft at Travis AFB. Each proposed alternative would involve the outgrant of real estate on Travis AFB to SFPP, LP SFPP upon which SFPP would install, own, operate, and maintain an approximately 1.9-mile JP-8 pipeline, receiving facility, and junction station. Pipeline installation would occur by conventional trenching and additional construction methods specific to each alternative. Under Alternative 1 the Proposed Action approximately 1.1 miles of the pipeline would be installed by horizontal directional drilling. Under Alternative 2, five pipeline segments totaling approximately 0.2 mile would be installed by slick-bore. Under Alternative 3, approximately 1.2 miles of the pipeline would be installed aboveground, and an access road would be constructed adjacent to the aboveground pipeline segment. Under the No-Action Alternative, existing JP-8 distribution and dispensation infrastructure at Travis AFB and identified security and capacity shortfalls would remain unchanged.
