Abstract:

49th Fighter Wing 49 FW, located at Holloman AFB, proposes to undertake additional development in and near the Lake Holloman and Lagoon G Complex to support increased recreational activities. The proposal would involve the construction of camping and picnic areas nature trails restrooms and recreational vehicle RV facilities and would allow for additional activities such as boating, fishing, and all-terrain vehicle A TV use, as well as enhance existing bird watching opportunities. The recreation area would be accessible to both Holloman-based personnel and members of the surrounding community. Alternative A would be the same as the Proposed Action except that fishing would not be permitted in Lagoon G or Lake Holloman. The No Action Alternative would continue the current use of Lake Holloman as an uncoordinated recreational area. Under the No Action Alternative, Holloman AFB personnel would continue to recreate at more distant locations such as Elephant Butte, Inn of the Mountain Gods, Caballo Lake, or small private Lakes in the Cloudcroft and Ruidoso areas.
