Abstract:

An environmental assessment EA was prepared to evaluate the potential environmental impacts associated with construction of a new firing range and Security Forces Squadron SFS facility at Youngstown Air Reserve Station. The proposed action would provide facilities for small arms and munitions training, administration, maintenance and storage requirements and would collocate the small arms range, the SFS building, and the associated munitions facilities. The existing firing range was not designed to the current standards and requirements of Air Force Handbook AFH 32-1 084, Facility Requirements, nor Engineering Technical Letter ETL 06-11, Small Arms Range Design and Construction. The Security Forces Squadron facility. Building 400, is undersized for its current mission as specified by current standards in Air Force Reserve Command Handbook AFRCH 32-1001, Standard Facility Requirements. The two projects are proposed to be located in the same general area in the northeast comer of YARS. No existing facilities are available on base to meet these requirements.
