The Proposed Action is to establish a new authorized level of activity for TAs B-71 and B-82 that is based on an anticipated maximum usage. Demonstrating that the individual and cumulative effects of this usage level do not have significant environmental impact is the method for establishing the maximum threshold baseline, which is being identified as the Range EIAP Baseline. The environmental analysis is accomplished by evaluating the effect that the military mission activities and expendables have on Eglin AFBs natural, physical, and cultural environment. The No Action Alternative and Alternative 1 are not expected to be sufficient to account for the expected growth of testing and training activities at Eglin AFB over the next 10 years. Therefore, Alternative 2 was selected as the Preferred Alternative to adequately cover the environmental analysis needed to support potential increased testing and training requirements as they occur.
