Abstract:

Pursuant to the Council on Environmental Qualitys regulations for implementing the National Environmental Policy Act 40 CPR Part 1500-1508, Department of Defense DoD Directive 6050.1, and Air Force Instruction 32-7061, Environmental Impact Analysis Process, as promulgated at 32 CFR Part 989, the Department of the Air Force has prepared an Environmental Assessment EA by adopting the Department of Energy DoE EA as described in the next paragraph of the potential environmental impacts associated with the proposed decision of the Air Force to allow DoE to construct and renovate an Aerial Cable Test Facility located at Kirtland AFB. In situations where non-Air Force entities such as DoE request an action by the Air Force, the Air Force decision must take into consideration the potential environmental impacts of the applicants proposed activity as described in an Air Force environmental document, insofar as the proposed action involves Air Force property or programs or requires Air Force approval. The Air Force may require the requester to prepare an EA as was done here with the DoE, but the Air Force must independently evaluate and approve the scope and content of the EA. The Air Force has independently evaluated and approved the scope and content of the EA Test Capabilities Revitalization for the Aerial Cable Test Facility, Sandia National Laboratories, New Mexico June 2003 prepared by DoE and hereby adopts the EA as an Air Force environmental document insofar as the proposed action involves Air Force property or programs or requires Air Force approval.
