General Environmental Impacts
Air Quality A significant air permit revision is needed.
Cultural/ Archeological/ Sites or areas were identified with high potential for
Tribal Resources archeological sites. The installation has been in formal
consultation within the last two years with two Native American
tribes. The tribes are local to the installation, and the subject of
interest is archeological in nature. The installation has seven
historic districts covering 391 acres that include 42 contributing
resources. Seven historic properties are not in districts.
Dredging No impact
Land Use Constraints/ Air operations are already constrained because of weather
Sensitive Resource Areas between October and March, and limits night-time flying.
Additional operations may further impact constraining factors
and therefore further restrict operations. Military Munitions
Response Program sites exist on the installation and may
represent a safety hazard for future development. The base uses
safety waivers and exemptions to accomplish the mission.
Additional operations may compound the need for safety
Marine Mammals/ Marine No impact
Noise Noise contours will need to be re-evaluated as a result of the
change in mission. The AICUZ reflects the current mission, local
land use, and current noise levels. The area surrounding the base
is not zoned by the local community. The community has not
purchased easements for area surrounding the installation.
Threatened& Endangered No T&E species or critical habitats exist. No impact to T&E
Species/ Critical Habitat species is expected.
Waste Management Modification of hazardous waste program is needed.
Water Resources No impact
Wetlands Wetlands restrict 12% of the base. Wetlands do not currently
restrict operations. Additional operations may impact wetlands,
which may restrict operations.
