Contents Notes
Pursuant to the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Act of 1990, Richards-Gebaur Air Force Base is scheduled for realignment on September 30,1994. This EIS, prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act, analyzes potential environmental impacts of disposal. Although disposal will have few direct effects, future use by others will create indirect effects. The document includes analyses of potential impacts a range of reasonable foreseeable reuses could have on local land use and aesthetics, transportation, utilities, hazardous materials/wastes, geology and soils, water resources, air quality, noise, biological resources, and cultural resources. All reuse alternatives, including the Proposed Action and the No-Action Alternative, incorporate aviation and industrial land use areas. Potential impacts associated with the Proposed Action include increase air emissions, wetlands impacts and one building eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. Preservation covenant within the disposal documents could eliminate or reduce these effects to a non-adverse level. Because the Air Force is disposing of the property, some of the mitigation measures are beyond Air Force control. Remediation of Installation Restoration Program sites will continue to be the responsibility of the Air Force.-BKA.
