In order to avoid potentially unsafe situations, remove unused facilities, and avert unnecessary maintenance costs, the U.S. Air Force intends to demolish nineteen 19 structures at Hill Air Force Base Hill AFB and Little Mountain Test Facility LMTF. Fourteen 14 structures are proposed to be demolished in fiscal year FY 2003 and five 5 structures are proposed to be demolished in FY 2004. The 19 structures are either not used any longer, are scheduled to be replaced with a new structure, or are deteriorated beyond economical repair. This Environmental Assessment analyzes the potential environmental impacts of the proposed action demolition, the no action alternative, and alternative 1 rebuildingupdating the existing structure. In the proposed action, each structure would be demolished in the fiscal year it is scheduled. Heavy equipment would be used to dismantle the structure and haul away the debris. Under the no action alternative, no demolition would occur and potentially unsafe situations related to each of the structures would result. In alternative 1, each proposed structure would undergo full rebuildingupdating to make the structure safe for use. A summary of the impacts from the proposed action and the no action alternative is provided in Table ES-1. It is not anticipated that the proposed action would have significant adverse environmental impacts. However, the no action alternative would not address the safety and security concerns and may, in time, result in a worse condition.
