Abstract:

The proposed action evaluated in this environmental assessment EA is the demolition of Buildings 122, 144, 153, 501 and 502, removal of associated infrastructure and planting to grass. The proposed action is needed to eliminate operation and maintenance costs for unnecessary structures on New Boston Air Force Station NBAFS. An alternative was considered to reuse the some of the buildings but was eliminated from full analysis due to cost and environmental concerns. The no-action alternative i.e., maintain buildings was also assessed in this EA. This EA evaluated the potential impacts to air quality, noise levels, topography, geology, soils, water resources, ecological resources, cultural resources, land use, recreation, visual resources socioeconomics, and health and safety. On the basis of this assessment, it was determined that the proposed action would result in only minor to negligible localized, short-term, or temporary impacts to the environment as compared to the no-action alternative. The demolition of Buildings 122, 144, 153, 501 and 502 would result in a negligible to minor incremental addition to impacts that have occurred from other construction activities in the vicinity of the Operations Area of the NBFAS.
