This Finding of No Significant Impact FONSI was prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act NEPA of 1969 Council on Environmental Quality CEQ regulations for implementing the procedural provisions of NEPA, 40 Code of Federal Regulations CFR Parts 1500-1508 and The Environmental Impact Analysis Process, 32 CFR 989. The decision in this FONSI is based on information contained in the Environmental Assessment EA for the Replacement of a Vehicle Wash Rack, Travis Air Force Base AFB or Base. The purposes of the EA are to determine the extent of environmental impacts that might result from proposed improvements at Travis AFB and evaluate whether these impacts, if any, would be significant. The purpose of the Purposed Action is to replace the existing inadequate, manual vehicle wash rack and associated oilwater separator OWS in the Logistics Readiness Squadron LRS yard with an automated drive-through vehicle washing facility drive-through that is operationally superior and environmentally compliant. The Proposed Action would meet the Bases need to provide an environmentally compliant area to wash and maintain the exteriors of approximately 1,000 Base fleet and LRS vehicles. LRS and Base personnel currently wash the vehicles manually at the existing wash rack This practice is inefficient. The existing wash rack is used during limited hours because it is not lighted, and it is too small to permit washing of large Base fleet and LRS vehicles. Furthermore, the current OWS associated with the wash rack has been found to be inadequate.
