Abstract:

This Abbreviated Environmental Assessment AEA evaluates the impact of the Proposed Action PA to develop the Northwest Infrastructure, Phase II area at Spangdahlem Air Base SAB, Germany. In this report, the site measurement provided by L.A.U.B., 38.67 ha 96 acres, was used for this evaluation of potential environmental impact to the AEA survey area. The PA area, the portion of the AEA survey area that will be developed according to the current plans provided by SAB and the 2007 L.A.U.B. landscape survey, will encompass 15 ha 37 acres of land. The proposed action involves a common area infrastructure constructing and to include construction of a high school, fitness center, commissary and base exchange BX. The PA area is adjacent to the existing northwest boundary of SAB. This area of expansion is part of the overall plan to enhance the mission of the 52d Fighter Wing at SAB. Supporting features will include a fence and road along the perimeter, connecting roads, sidewalks and parking areas, underground utility systems electrical, communication, water and sewer lines, landscaping, reforestation, and all other necessary work, as required. The design and construction of this project will comply with Department of Defense DoD and European Command Anti-TerrorismForce Protection ATFP standards Appendix A SAB, Fiscal Year FY 2007 DD Form 1391. This AEA discusses potential impacts to flora, fauna, cultural resources, geology, soils, groundwater, surface water, wetlands, air quality, hazardous materials and hazardous waste generation, noise, and land use associated with the PA and compares them to the No Action Alternative.
