PUBUC COMMENTS AND RESPONSES 


INTRODUCTION 


Tha Air Force has compiled wkh the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) mandate of public 
part i cipatio n in the environmental impact analysis process primarily in tvvo ways: 

• ApublichaaringiMasheldinVictonriUe, California, on October 17,1991. at which the Air 
Force presented the findings of the Draft Environmental Impact Statemert (DBS) for 
disposal and reuse of George Air Force Base (AFB) and invfted public comments. 

• The subject DBS was made avalabie for public review and comment in 
October-November 1991. 


Public comments received both verbally at the public meeting and in writing during the response period 
have been reviewed and are addressed by the Air F(m» in this section. 

ORGANIZATION 


This Public Comment and Response section Is organized into several subsections, as follows: 

• This introductioa which describes the process, organization, and approach taken in 
addressing public conunents 

• A consolidated comment-response document 

• An Index of commentors 

• A transcript of the public hearing 

• Photocopies of all written comments received. 

These sections are described below. 


Comments received that are simlar in nature or address simlar concerns have been consolidated to focus 
on the issue of concern, and a response is provided that addresses all of the similar comments. Some 
comments simply state a fact or an optoiion, for ocample, the DBS adequately assesses the impacts on 
[a resoivce area]." Such comments, although appreciated, do not require a specific response and are not 
caUed out herein. The comments arxl responses are grouped by area of concern, as follows: 

I. 0 Air Force Policy

Within each area, each consolidated comment-response Is numbered sequentially. For example, under 
9.0 Utilities, MMduaicommeras-responses are numbered 9.1,9.2, eta At the end of each numbered 
comment is a set of numbers that refer to the specific comment in the documents received that were 
combined into that consolidated commenl The numbers of the individual comments are indicated in 
parentheses, e.g. (6-8,11-13, IS-6,15-22). Comment 6-8, for example, refers to document 6, comment 
numbera A reader who wishes to read the specific comment(s) received may turn to the photocopies of 
the documents included in this sectioa Below each comment number is the number of the consolidated 
comment toi which the specific commertt has been encompassed, e.g. 7.5. Thus, the reader may reference 
back and forth between the consolidated comments-responses and the specific comment documents as 
they were received. 


It should be further noted that some comments In the documents received are not included In the 
consolidated comment-response document. These comments fell into two categories: 

• Comments to which no response is required, as explained above 

• Comments regarding the Soc/oeconom/c/mpactAna/ys/sStuoy (BIAS). 


Effects upon the physical or natural environment that may result from projected changes in certain 
sodoecoTKimic fectors that are associated with or caused by the disposal of reuse of the base are 
addressed within this EIS. Other socioeconomic issues, such as the region’s employment base, school 
budgets, municipal/state tax revenues, municipal land planning, medical care for military retirees and 
deperxfents, local governments and services, real estate, and economic effects on utility systems and 
specific businesses are beyond the scope of NEPA and CouncI on Environmental Quality (CEO) 
requirements. Analysis of impacts associated with these issues is provided in the SIAS; thtf pubiic 
document wU also support the base reuse decision-making process. All comments pertaining soieiy to 
issues addressed ki the SIAS were considered beyorxj the scope of this EiS, and so are not addres^ in 
this comment and response sectioa However, those comments have been reviewed arxf responses have 
been provided to each commentor. Comments concerning socioeconomic issues addressed In the SIAS 
only are indicated with an Son the photocopies of the comment documents. Comments related to 
socioeconomic fectors that are addressed in this BS (e.g., population, employment) have been included in 
this comment-response sectioa 

Finally, it should be emphasized that not only have responses to EIS comments been addressed in this 
comment-response ser^ion, as explained, but the text of tiieBS itself has also been revised, as 
appropriate, to reflect the concerns expressed in the pubiic comments. 


The list of commentors includes the name of the commentor, the identifying document number that has 
been assigned to ft, arxJ the page number in this section (xi which the photocopy of the document is

Publie Coimnanta and Raaponaaa 


1.0 POUCY 


1.1 Commant: Tha Proposad Action as prasentad by tha Air Forca in tha BS haa baan givan 

praferentiaitreatmant and an unfair bias has been usad in thafbnnation of thadocunant ThaBS 
is siantad to project that tha WEDA plan Is tha most logical and tala to prasant viabia altemativas 
for tha reusa of Gaorga AFB. (1-7.2-1.2-3.6-6.20-1.20-2.20-4.20-6) 


Resoonae: in considaration of aitamatives (which indudas the Proposed Action), the Air Force has 
evaluated each altemativa in the EIS consistentiy. on an equal basis, and without prejudgment as 
to which aitemativa action is bast In addition to tha three redavalopmant plans submittad by the 
local communities, the Air Force devalopad two more altemativas. As descitied in Section 2.1 of 
the BS, these two addMonal altematives were develdied in order to provide analysis of a wider 
range of potential reuse options. 


1.2 CODOmaDt: The BS's use of a "Proposed Action* is inconsistent with the intent of the Base Closure 
and Realignment Act (BCRA) and the laws of the U.S. Government (2-10.6-16) 


Response: BCRA requires that before any action may be taken with respect to the disposal of any 
surplus property or tacllty located at a mlttary installation to be dosed, the Secretary of Defense 
shall consult with the GoverTKir of the State and heads of local governments concerned for the 
purpose of considering any plan for the use of such property by the local community concerned. 
Air Force pdicy is to adopt the “community's* reuse and development plan as the Proposed 
ActkNi in regards to the dosure and disposal of George AFB. the community that is expected to 
experience the greatest job and population effects from the disposal of the instaBation is the Vidor 
Valley community. Within the Vidor Valley communtty, the local government of Adelareo and the 
coaiWon of VIdorvlle, Apple Valley, and Hesperia have developed competing reuse arxl 
development plans for George AFB and certain lands in proxirnity to the base. The coalition of 
Victon^ Apple Valley, and Hesperia joined with the county of ^ Bernardino to form a joint 
powersagency(JPA) known as the Vidor VaUeyEcoTKxnic Development Authority (WEOA). The 
JPA was formed pursuant to Section 33320.5 (Health and Safety C^e) of the CalBbmia 
Commimity Redevelopmera Law. This provision allows local governments hav^ terrttory within, 
adjacent to, or in proximity of a mlitary instaiiation slated to dose under BCRA witMn San 
Bevnardino County to form a JPA. The JPA serves as the central redevelopment agency, legisiative 
body, arxl plannfog commission for redevelopment of any lands within an approved projed withk) 
the JPA’s jurisdictioa The Air Force elected to adopt WEDA’s reuse and developm^ plan as the 
Proposed Action for purposes of environmental impadanalyds in the BS. The Ak Force also 
induded the reuse plan provided by the dty of Adelanto as one of the alternatives for 
environmental analysis. Al alteniativesanai^»d in the BS, induding the Propcoed Action, have 
received equal consideration during the environmental analysis process. 


1.3 Commsot: It should be noted that the dty of Adeianto’s reuse plan for George AFB was submitted 
in its entkety to the Air Force by the November 30,1990 deadline. WEDA did not produce their 
reuse document until after the DBS was published. Therefore, it would be difficult to accept that 
plan as the Proposed Action. (1-1,2-14,6-20) 


RaMiftnaa- The Adefefito and WEDA concefXual plans were both received prior to the pubUshfog 
of the DBS. and in both instances the Air Force had to supplement them through general 
asstsnptions to achieve the level of analysis accomplished. Both the Proposed Action and the 

George AFB Disposal and ReusoFElS 


3 






International Airport Alternative were analyzed based on roughly the same qualitative and 
cpjantRatlve Input 

1.4 Comment: The summary tables in the Executive Summary and Section 2.6 of profect-related 

Mluendng factors present an inaccurate comparison of the alternatives. The land area required for 
each alternative varies, and the cumulative impacts of c^er peripheral land uses are not 
considered. In order to fairly compare the alternatives, the same physical land area should be 
analyzed for each concept (1-19,2-52,6-58) 

Response : The comparison of project-related influencing foctors is based on properties directly 
developed \n each proposal and the Indirect development due to the In-migration of industry and 
population within the Victor Valley. The intamatloruU airport may result in less utBity consumption 
per acre of development within the boundaries shown, 13,426 acres, versus the Proposed Action 
alternative, 7,425 acres. However, the greater secoixlary employment, housing and 
commercial/industrial activity generated by the international airport outside the confines of the 
alternative's boundaries wU drive overall consumption above the Proposed Action levels. The 
Influencing factors are based on the affected areas and not necessarily on comparable land areas 
of the same physical size. 


1.5 Comment : The Air Force should further coordinate the EiS with the Federal Aviation Administration 
(FAA) so that it may serve as the essential environmental record reuse document for the FAA as 
weU. (1-17,4<3) 


Response: The Air Force wll continue to work doseiy with the FAA in their current role as a 
cooperating agency to ensure a coordinated and timely decision regarding the airport In a formal 
role, known officially as a cooperative agency, the FAA was concerned with the impact of the 
airport-related reuse alternatives to er«ure that the EIS meets their environmental analysis 
requirements. 


1.6 Comment: The EIS for the most part Is comprised of condusory statements with limited analysis 
and does not disdose the methodology and supporting data for its condusions. (1-2,6-1) 


Response : NEPA and CEQ regulations only require that the EIS contain a presentation and 
documentation of the scientific analysis for significant environmental issues and how they may be 
affected by the various alternatives' actions. However, for darification and ease of reading, the 
methodology used In these analyses has been Induded. Sections of Chaoter 4 and Appendix F 
provide the methods of analysis for each environmental resource. In addition. Appendices J and L 
give methodologies for analysis of noise impacts and air quality impacts, respectively. 


1.7 Comment: The EIS does not present the environmental impacts of the alternatives in a form which 
sharply defines issues and prmrides a dear basis for the decision maker. (1-3,6-2) 


Response: Comparison of Impacts by alternative is presented in matrix form in the Executive 
Summary and Section 2.6. 


1.8 Comment: The EiS does not identify the significance of impacts of each alternative. (1-4,6-3) 


Response: Ttie EIS identifles environmental impacts and addresses the intensity of each impact 
anticipated as a result of base reuse. A context or background is provided, when appropriate, to 
allow the reader or the decisionmaker to determine significance from an informed point of 
reference. For example, air quality is described in terms of emissions from George AFB in 1988 


4 


George AFB Dispose and Reuse FEIS 




and the entire Southeast Desert Air Basin in 1967. Thereadercan, therefore, use these data to 
compare impacts of air emissions projected for each of the aitematives. 


1.9 Comment: The EIS does not identify and analyze the significant effects and conflicts of the reuse 
aitematives on the dty of Adeianto and other individual cities and communities. (1-5,6<4) 


Respaise: The EIS does Identify and analyze effects of each of the reuse aitematives on the 
region of influence including the city of Addanto and the rest of the Victor Valley communities with 
the spedficfly that the conceptual plans submitted allow. 


1.10 Comment: The EIS does not adequately identify cumulative impacts associated with the reuse 
aitematives. (1-6.6^,28^,28-35) 

Response: Cumulative impacts are discussed for each environmental resource under each reuse 
alternative in Chapter 4. Section 2.S outlines known future actions in the region that were 
considered potentiaiiy able to contribute to cumulative impacts of the disposal and reuse of 
George APB. After examination, these projects were found to have minimal impact on base reuse. 
For example, the closure of Norton AFB was examined to ascertain the cumulative impact on 
population and employment However, the anticipated population arxl employment Impacts for the 
existing region of influence (ROI) were found to be so small O-e., approximately SO people) that the 
cumulative impact from Norton APB’s closure was considered negligible. 


1.11 Comment: The EIS is a mere post-hoc justification of the Air Force's decision, apparently already 
made, to transfer George APB to WEDA for development and reuse. (1 -28,6-7,20-3) 


Response: The Air Force has not made any prejudgement on which alternative wfll be chosen. 
The decision as to how the Air Force wai dispose of the property wfll be made only after the 
environmental impact analysis process has been completed and after consideration of applicable 
federal property disposal laws. The Air Force’s adoption of WEDA’s reuse plan as the Air Force 
Proposed Action does not mean that the Air Force has already made its decision as to how to 
dispose of the property. Also see response to Comment 1.2. 


1.12 Comment: The EIS’s approach of comparing environmental impacts of each alternative to 

post-closure corKlitions as the baseline is confusing. To fully e\^uate the impacts of aitematives, it 
is necessary that comparisons be provided with conditions existing today. (6-8) 


Response: Generally, the baseline for comparative purposes is at closure. However, for certain 
resource categories such as air quality. noiM, and transportation, a predosure reference is used 
for meaningful comparative analyses ct those resources. References to predosure conditions aiso 
provide context to people fomliv with those conditions In specific areas described as the affected 
environment These predosure references are dearly discussed in Chapter 3 for each applicable 
category and are identified in Chapter 4. 


1.13 Comment: The decision to choose WEDA’s reuse dan as the Proposed Action, based on the Air 
Force’s interpretation of Caiifomia Health arxl Safety Code Section 33320.5 is incorrect and 
prejudicial to the dty of Adeianto. (1-20,1-29,9^) 


Response: Since the Proposed Action and other aitematives wfll receive equal consideration for 
purposes of environmental analysis, it is incorrect to assume that the dty of Adelanto’s reuse plan 
is "prejudicecr by its treatment as an alternative and not as the Proposed Actioa ITie decision to 
adopt WEDA's reuse plan as the Proposed Action was a matter of Air Force pdicy and not sdely

George AFB and that WEOA is a state-recognized JPA with county raprasentatlon wera signMcanl 
tactors in making this determination. 


1.14 Commant: The EiS iacks specificity with regard to the ultimate development of George AFB. 
(18-10) 


The amount of irdormstion used in the analysis of rause aitematives is Sufficient for the 
Air Force decision, which is disposal of the property. Parc^eis were delineated by a preponderance 
of simlar iand-use activities in certain areas. The ievei and intensity of deveioprnentwUoniy be 
defined after the transfer of property has taken place and the new owner presets deveiopinent 
plans. The requirement for additional environrnentai analysis at that time wii be a local government 
issue. 


1.15 Comment: Under what federal authority is WEDA recognized as the reuse authority for George 
AFB? (1-21,2-13,6-19) 


Response: See response to Comment 1.2. 


1.16 Comment: In many instances, the EIS has relied solely on data and analyses included in the 
WEDA proposal to analyze other alternatives. (20-6) 


Response: The Air Force used data furnished by each proponent, as applicabie, to analyze each 
aitemativa. When data were not available, the Air Force generated assumptions based on data 
from many ottier sources to supplement detals needed to effectively analyze the alternatives. 
These assumptions are listed in each alternative's description in Chapter 2. Included in Appendix F 
is a discussion of methods of analysis for each resource area, which indude assumptions 
generated. 


1.17 Comment: The EiSfals to disdose why the Addanto proposal and other alternatives were 
rejected. (20-7) 

Response: The only altematives eliminated from consideration in the EIS are those listed In 
Section 2.4. The International Airport Alternative and other altematives are evaluated to the same 
degree as the Proposed Action. 


1.18 Comment: The EIS has minimal discussion of mitigation measures. NEPA requires dtecussion of 
cumulative effects and appropriate mitigation measures not aiready induded in the alternatives 
(24 CFR Section 1502.14(0,1S02.16(b), 150a7). Mitigation is the heart and sole (sic) and the sine 
qua non of the EIS, without which the EIS is nr^ing more than a punch-list of impact wtthotA 
identiflca^ of the attendant costs, ramifications and short/long term impacts (sic) necessary to 
correct the problems. (20-20,28-9,28-36) 

Response: Mitigation measures to be contemplated during development are discussed for each 
environmental resource. The extent of any mitigation w8l be dependent on the actual construction 
plans related to a parcel of land. As ail planning relating to reuse of (Beorge AFB is presently 
conceptual and the Air Force wM not be carrying out any project on any parcel of property, 
mitigations wB have to be carried out by the de^oper in concert with the applicable regulatory 
agencies. Based on the limtted information currently avaBable on how the conceptual 
redevelopment plans wll be bnpiemerrted on each specific site or parcel, the BS’s discussion of

George AFB Disposal and Reuse FEIS 





mitigation ia adequate for a meaninj^ anaiysis of proiected environmental impacta for each 
aKemadve. 


1.19 CaumfiDl: The BSdoea not meet the requirements of the CalHomia Environmental Quality Act 
(CEQA) (Public Resourcea Code Sections 21000 et aeq.) (20^) 


Reanonse: Although the CEQA does not apply to federal agencies, the depth of anaiysis 
conducted by the Air Force fufflUs the substantive requirements of CEQA. 


1.20 Comment: The EIS does not analyze impacts of or the national interests for developing ground 
support for the Natkmai Aerospace Plane (NASP). The potentiai for suitable sites for such an 
important project must be very limited in the Southern Caiifomia area. (1-2S) 


Response: The NASP is outside the scope of this EIS. 


1.21 Comment: The Air Force shouid revise the DEIS and reissue it in draft for public review. (28-13) 


Response: The Air Force will not Issue a revised DEIS for public comment Because the changes 
made to the DEIS resulting from public and agency comment were minor, NEPA and the CouncH 
for Envirorunental Quality regulations do ncrt require reissuance of the DEIS for public comment 
Many of the environmental concerns raJsed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 
Regkxi IX and the public have been addressed In the final EIS. Several of the administrative arKi 
environmental concerns raised by EPA Region IX regarding IRP issues will be addressed In the IRP 
process, with ample opportunity for public involvement Some comments to the DEIS addressed 
issues beyond the scope of environmental analysis required by NEPA and should be addressed by 
EPA Region IX, agenciro of the state of Caltfomia, and local authorities, as post-closure 
redevelopment and reuse activities of George AFB are implemented. The Air Force is avaflaUe to 
provide assistance as required, to those authorities through the Disposal Management Team 
(DMT) at George AFB. 


1uZ2 Comment: The BS should include detafled discussion of mitigation measures that demonstrate 
that the measures wU be reasonably effective; describe the schedule, funding, and responsible 
parties; demonstrate enforceablity of mitigation implementation. (28-37,28-43,28-44) 


Response: It is important to reempha^e that the actual Air Force action Is disposal of the 
property, which has few, if any, envirorunental impacts. Impacts and potential mitigation measures 
associated with proposed reuse alternatives have been identified. The actual implementation, 
including scheduling and funding, of these measures wll be the responsibility of the reuse 
proponent, and is beyond the Air Force’s scope of analysis. 


Various regulatory agencies have the responsibHity of enforcing certain mitigation measures (e.g., 
hazardous waste practices, air quality controls, etc.) These agencies are li^ed in Table 1.S-1, 
which dtes applicable statutes and regulations. 


A discussion of the effectiveness of mitigation measures is sometimes applicable, as in the case of 
replacement of wMlife habitat, for example. Where appropriate, an addition to the text regarding 
the probaMIty of success associated with a particular mitigation has been made within the 
Chapter 4 analysis.

PURPOSE AND NEED FOR ACTION 


2.1 Commant! The No-Actlon Alternative has tremendous sodoeconomic iinpacts. If nothing is 

instdied to replace the Jobs that are eliminated once the Air Force leaves, there wU be signMcani 
negative economic and cultural impacts. (2-8,6-15) 


Raaponea: The No-Action Alternative is indudad as required by the CouncI on Environmental 
Quaitty's implementing regulations to NEPA. The Air Force Is conrunittad to wortdng with affeded 
communities to ease the transition of dosura bases from mlitary to dviian use. Socioeconomic 
impacts have been addressed in the EIS to the extent that they could affad the biophysical 
environment A separate document although not required under NEPA, was develop^ to expand 
the analysis of sodoecortomic affects. 


2.2 Comment! The International Airport has been designed to ultimately serve upwards of SOjnlUlfla 

annual passengers (MAP), not 60 MAP, as stated In Section l a.I. (2-11,6-17) 


Response : A text change has been Incorporated to clarify the SO MAP figure. 


2.3 Comment ! In Sedion 1.3.1, under Housing, Lflile Ruff’s Inc. disagrees that the “retention of the 
1,641 single and multi famBy housing units is incompatible with effective planning for the reuse of 
George AFB as a potential airport/airfield." (8-4) 

Response : This statement was received during tire Scoping Comment Period of September 28 
through November 30,1990. Issues that arc»e during scoping are listed for Informational 
purposes. They do nd relied Air Force opinion or pdicy and are nd necessarly carried forward 
into the anaiysik A text change in this section has been made to more dearly dHferadiate between 
scoping comments and data arxi assumptions incorporated Into the analysis. 

2.4 Comment: The statement'1t was suggested that support for the homeless be considered in the 
reuse d George AFB," should be revised to read. 'The Lillie Ruff’s Inc. Homeless Program has 
submitted a proposal which recommends that support for the homeless be considered in the reuse 
d George AFB." (8-5) 


Responsa: The Alaska Cirde reuse proposal, a LWie Ruffs proposal, was nd received until March 
1991, arxi was, therefore, nd induded in the Scoping Comments. However, the proposal is 
induded as an Other Larxf Use Concept in the EiS.

3.0 


ALTERNATIVES INCLUDING THE PROPOSED ACTION 


3.1 Commant: It 3hould be noted that the dty of Adeianto has offered the Federal Bureau of Prisons 
an alternative site than that on George AFB. (2-i2,2-46.2-68,6-18,6-51,6-74) 

Response: The offer by the city of Adelanto is outside the scope of this documertt and wR be 
subject to separate environmental analysis by that agency before any decision is made to accept 
an offer. 


3.2 Comment: If the results of technical studies are being compled, how has the Air Force been able 
to analyze, with any degree of accuracy, the Proposed Action? (2-15,6-21) 


Response: The city of Adelanto and WEDA conceptual plans were both received prior to the 
publishing of the DEIS arKi In both instances the Air Force had to supplement them through 
general assumptions to achieve the level of analysis required. Both the Proposed Action and the 
International Airport alternatives were analyzed based on roughly the same quantitative and 
qualitative input 


3.3 Comment: Did the other alternatives analyzed by WEDA get eliminated for environmental, 

ecoTKimic, or political reasons? Should those attematives be evaluated for merit by the Air Force? 
(2-16,6-54) 


Response : The other two alternatives considered by WEDA were both dropped by WEDA due to 
concerns over limiting future expansion and capacify of aviation options. The Air Force did not 
consider them, as the other aviation alternatives better fulfOled the desires of the local communities 
for the reuse of George AFB. in addition, as stated in Section 2.4 of the EiS, the conditions 
presented in these alternatives are already covered in the range of options reflected within the 
Proposed Action and alternatives. 


3.4 Comment: Due to wind constraints present at the George AFB facOity, it is unlikely that a 50/50 
split of operations is possible between north/south (17/35) and crosswind (03/21) runways. The 
wind coristraint should have been more thorougNy investigated. (2-18,2-36,6-23,6-41) 

Response : The 50/50 split of operations for the Proposed Action is based on the larger aircraft 
predominately using 17/35 except during high cross-wind conditions and general aviation using 
03^1. This scenario is reasonable based on the mix of aircraft and the proportionally larger 
number of smaller aircraft using the airfield under the alternatives. The split of operations for the 
International Airport Alternative would be 80/20 based on the mix of aircraft and wirxf constraints. 


3.5 Comment: Has WEDA been chartered to be or become an airport authority? IstheFAA 
concerned that WEDA may lack the required expertise in the operation of an airport facSity, 
especially at the 15 MAP level? (2-19,6-24) 

Response: WEDA has not been chartered as an airport authority. The FAA wfll regulate or 
administer in concert with Caltrans Department of Aeronautics the operation of an airport or airport 
district In accordance with both sets of policies. 


George AFB Disposal and Reuse FEIS 





3.6 CoDUDfiDi; Sectk>n 2.3.1 describes the IrttematkxHd Airport Alternative as being daslgned to 
arxommodateGOMAP. This figure should be 50 MAP. (2-26,6^1) 


Rasponaa: The GO MAP figure was given to the Air Force by dty of Adelanto representatives in 
their oral comments at the scoping meeting for this BS. Tlw figure was later ron/ised by the 
proponent to 50 MAP arxl a text change In Section 2.3.1 has been made to reflect this. The 50 
MAP refers to demarxl projected after the 20-year analysis; 25 MAP is the figure used in the EIS,

5.1 CtMumant: An akpoftvvN not drasticaHy increase the currant population trends of the Victor Valley 
ortheROI. Rather. It wM provide jobs for residents who are alrradyeocpected. (2-2,2-4,6-11) 


Response: Population In the Victor Valley and the ROI wW increase naturally based on currettt 
trends in the High Desert However, the development of an airport serving the numbers of 
passengers shown in the International Airport Alternative or the Proposed Action wM drive 
addMonai in-migration due to additionai employment opportunities. 


5.2 Comment: The number of jobs per flight operation is not consistent for each alternative. For 
example, the international Airport Altemadve would generate 80,000 jobs with 670,000 flight 
operations, which is equivalent to 0.12 jobs per operation. The Proposed Action would generate 
40,000 jobs with 76,000 operations, which equals 0.526 jobs per operation. (2-9,6-10) 

Response: The number of jobs created by the reuse of George AFB b not solely attributable to 
flight operations within the aviation alternatives. Jobs are related to land use variations arxi the job 
opportunities related to those land uses and resultant deveiopment More intense employment¬ 
generating uses of the avalable land can mean a rather small parcel of property could create more 
jobs than the rather open expanse of property needed to support an airfield. 


5.3 Comment: Table 2.2-4 needs to reference the source data for the popubtion and employment 
projections, it appears that the EIS used different assumptions than those presented by WEDA. 
(2-23,6-28) 


Response: Population and employment figures shown in the table are from computer modeling 
done for thb study, rather than WEDA assumptions. Employment projections in the EIS are based 
on a study produ^ by the Southern Caiifomb Assodation of Governments (SCAG), adjusted for 
the closure of George and Norton AFBs. Tfw U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysb (BEA) Regional 
Interindustry Multiplier System (RIMS II) model was also used to project employing impacts in 
specific industries. 


Interdisciplinary multipliers were prepared by the BEA using the most recent information describing 
the relationship of the Riverside-San Bernardino primary metropolitan statbticai area (PMSA) 
economy to the national economy. The magnitude of output, income, and employment impacts 
was estimated by multiplyfog the changes for each industry by the RIMS II coefficients. Thb 
methodology was used to develop quantitative projections for the closure baseline, the Proposed 
Action, arxf the other reuse altematl^ These emjsioyment forecasts then became inputs to the 
population spreadsheet model. 


Population changes consbted of three key components: (1) baseline growth, (2) relocation of 
workers arxi their dependents, and (3) naforal Increase of population (births minus deaths) over the 
longterm. Baseline population trends for the ROI and the VMor Valley area of concentrated study 
(ACS) were prepared by SCAG and then adjusted to reflect the impacts of base closure by 
subtracting the estimated population loss expected with the closure of the base. 


The relocation of workers in response to closure arxi subsequent reuse was determined using 
relocation parameter values irfltially developed for a study of the closure of Chanute AFB in 
Rantoul, IHinob. These values were adjusted to reflect the more urbanized ROI for George AFB 
and were specific to each type of employment (direct and indirect), by category.

Average household sizes \Mer6 assumed to correspond, for most categories, with the aveiage size 
d state-to-state migrating famlies between 1980 arxf 1985. For outHdgratIng mlltary famlies, the 
household size was based on George AFB personnel records. For students and retired mlka^, 
the average household sizes were assumed to be 1.00 and 2.00, respecdveiy. 


Finally, natural increase of population relocating to the area was caicuiated using dennographic 
data developed for San Bernardino County by the Caiifomia Department of Finance (d;^. The 
CDF data indicated a natural increase of 9.1 percent between 1980 and 1989. For the EIS It was 
assumed the in-migrating population would exhibit a simHar natural increase throughout the 
20-year study period. 


5.4 Comment: In Table 2.3-11, employment and population effects of the prison on the Proposed 

Action and Intemationai Airport Alternatives should remain constant if they are based on the same 
land use acreage ratios. (2-47,6-52) 


Reenonee: Empioymertt figures are the same in both cases. A text change has been made to 
show the employnient level rourxled to the newest ten jobs. 


5.5 Comment: The majority of Other land use concefMs wH not significantiy impact employment artd 
population of the Intemationai Airport Altemativa. in fact, most of these uses wU be able to be 
absorbed Into the overall plan. (2-48,6-53) 


Response : The Other Land Use Concepts are not part of any integrated reuse plan, but could be 
initiated on an irxllvidual basis with any alternative. The document is presented to allow the reader 
make the assessment of the effects of Other Land Use Concepts on any or aB of the alternatives. 


5.6 Comment: The ROI should Include Los Angeles County, since the Lancaster/Palmdaie area is 
located near George AFB. in addition. Orange County ins been excluded which has a dramatic 
impact on the region, in that many residents of the Victor Valley commute to jobs in that area. 
(2-53,6-69) 


Response: The potential effects of reuse of George AFB which may occur outside the ROI in Los 
Angeles and Orange counties are expected to be minimal due to the size of that economic region. 
WKh the redevelopment of George Ara, the Victor Valley should become much less depeixlent on 
job opportunities outside the ROI. This is a basic theme in existing development plans which 
speak to an existing labor force in the High Desert taking jobs there rather than commuting to 
south coast areas. 


5.7 Commant: Adeianto's dty limits are biaccurateiy portrayed due to fairly recent incorporated areas

5.9 Commant: Section 4.2.I.6. which states that five direct jobs would bo generated by the 

conveyance of recreationai taciilties. is Inconsistent with Section 4.2.3.1, wNch indicates fifty jobs 
(golf course, parks, and open space). (1-12,3-2) 


Response: The five jobs associated with conveyance of the recreationai fadities represent staffing 
needed by the Department of the Interior to administer the conveyance program. Underthe reuse 
plan in Section 4.2.3.1, staffing of the recreational facilities themselves was estimated to generate 
fifty jobs. 

5.10 Comment: Table S-7 savs that the HUD Other Land Use Concept is projected to increase the 

Victor VaUey population by ISO homeless individuals. The vast majority of the homeless individuais 
served by the Alaska Circle Community will be from the Victor Vall^ area. (8-2) 


Response: Table S-7 and the accompanying text have been changed to reflect the comment 


5.11 Commant: Table S-7 says that the Alaska Cirde proposal wM result in a net decrease of 677 jobs 
for the Proposed Action. Since the Proposed Action will only utlize 202 total off-base acres, there 
will be ample acreage within the vicinity of George AFB. Therefore, the Alaska Circle Community 
wM only displace 677 jobs to a location near foe base. The Alaska Circle Community's projected 
staff employment will actually result in a net increase of 36 jobs for the Victor Valley. (8-3) 


Response: Under foe Proposed Action, the Alaska Circle housing units would be replaced with a 
commercial area. The Alaska Cirde proposal's implementation in the project area would result in a 
reduction of the Proposed Action's commercial area. Since employm^ figures are untformly 
based on a set ratio of jobs per land use area, the reduced size of the commercial area would 
result In a net employment decrease to foe alternative. This is consistent with simlar analyses for 
the other alternatives, and as commented, does not predude development outside the confines of 
the project area 

5.12 Comment: The Bureau of Prisons Other Land Use Concept wBi generate approximately 1,000 jobs

Expansion in that area wM be difficult and pose negative environmental impacts. (2-21,6-26) 


Response: Expansion or construction in any vaa on or around George AFB \mII result in ground 
disturbance arxJ may have some environmental impacts. As stated in Section 2.2.2 of the EiS, the 
1,605 acre parcel is interKled to act as a protective buffer betwveen the airfield and future, possibly 
incompatible uses. It also provides room for expansion if the current capacity is exceeded.

Adelanta The larxf use map for the Proposed Action shows part of the airfield land use category 
being within the dty of Ade^o. Has an agreement been reeched between WEDA arxl the city of 
Adelanto? if not, the map should be adjusted. (2-25,6-30.20-18,20-19) 


Response: The plan Is conceptual and represents the layout of the alternative as arralyzed. 
Adjustments to the map wR occur as authorities and public and private entities go about the reuse 
ofGeorgeAFB. in Chapter 4, land use conflicts of ail the alternatives are discus»ed. TheAirForce 
wH not resolve the potential local conflicts over land use as the actions pertaining to land use in the

concept is higNighted in the description of the area in Section 2.3.I.3. 


6.5 Comment: It should be pointed out that the City of Adelanto’s reuse plan calls for the retention of

Rasponsa: The Industrial classification is consistent throughout the documerd as a general 
catego ry tha t indudes a mixture of industiial, commerdai. and office. This is supported by the 
International Airport Alternative in that this bu^iess park zone indudes light indukriai and the

6.10 Comment: An expandable airport was to be eliminated from further consideration according to 
Section 2.4. making it unnecessary to rezone areas to the north of the base for the Proposed

Response: As discussed in the response to Comment 3.19. the Expandable Akport Is generafly 
encompassed bi the Proposed Action, and was therefore not studies as an additional alternative. 
Rezoning of areas north of the base would be required to accommodate the Proposed Action as 
plaivied. 


&11 Comment: Skice the fleet mix for the International Airport Alternative is not a true representation of 
the actual fleet mix. it is impossible to calculate how many residences and businesses must be 
relocated to insure airport compatiblity. A new model must be generated according to a more 
realistic fleet mix. (2-65.6-71) 

Reaaonae: Due to the speculative nature of the aviation alternatives, the fleet mix chosen for 
analysis is believed representative of the type of aircraft operations for the alternatives analyzed. 


6.12 Comment: The land use conflicts figures for the international Airport Alternative do not reflect the

TRANSPORTATION 


7.1 Commant: WEDA's proposal, based on the P & D Technologies Projected Flight Operations, 

shows a total of 23,100 passenger operations per year. This number of operations corresponds to 
a 1 MAP level by 2013, not IS MAP. (1-8,2-17,2-20, 2-80,6-22,6-25,6-86) 


Response: The present airfield and area reserved for a terminal Mclity can acconunodate IS MAP, 
with expansion of the terminal faclity feasible to accommodate up to 2S MAP. Right operations, 
however, shown for the Proposed Action are based on only 1 MAP at 2013, the WEDA anticipated 
passenger load at that time based on their current projections. The analysis for the Proposed 
Action was based on 1 MAP. 


7.2 Comment: Section 2.2.6 leads one to believe that the security fences are to remain around the 
“Base Faciiity." Won't the fences be removed after base dosure? (2-22,6-27) 


Response: The Air Force has no intention at this time to remove the current base security fencing 
after base dosure. The Air Force wW maintain a security presence on the installation for some 
period after dosure to protect facilities under its contrd prior to transfer to others. With 
subsequent reuse and new access (other than existing gates) to the George AFB desired, the new 
owner(s) of parcels may remove the fence In sections. However, the security fence is a valuable 
resource to the aviation alternatives and reuse will most likely dictate the future of the fence. 

7.3 Comment: AADT figures for the Intemationd Airport Alternative are much too high. In addition, 
since the airport terminais are being located off of the base property, these numbers wll be 
insignificanL Being an intemationai/regionai hub type airport, fewer travelers will be coming via 
private automoble. it is estimated that approximately 25 percent of travelers wWarrive/depert from 
the airport via super speed train and/or other mass transit systetrs. (2-44,2-71,6-49,6-77) 

Response : It was assumed that 20 percent of travelers would arrive/depart from the airport as 
connecting passengers. Super Speed Train passengers are discussed in Section 4.2.3.2. This 
results in an overall traffic r^uction of approximately 7 percent 

7.4 Comment: The map portraying the conceptual realignment of Highway 395 is inaccurate and is

7.7 CooUDSIlt: The utilization of AMTRAK is a good idea, but it does not adequateiy serve the 

commuter and/or intemationaitravei market High-speed ground access systems are the only 
solution and should be mentioned in foe Transportation sectloa (2-70.2-74.6-76.6-80) 


Response: The beneficial effects of high-speed ground access are mentioned in Section 2.5 and 
Section 4.Z3.2. 


7.8 Comment: The international airport has been designed to allow for a fifth runway, which wH be 
constructed when demand for it is anticipated, residting in greater operational capacity. (2-73. 
6-79) 


Response: The indusion of a fifth runway codd reduce the ground delays of aircraft using the 
airport It is expected that the fifth runway would most likely be built after 20 years of operation, 
beyond the scope of this EIS. 


7.9 Comment: In Appendix E. "Norton AFB" should be replaced by "George AFB." (2-61.6-87) 


Response: A text change has been made to reflect the comment 


7.10 Comment: In Section 4.2.3.I. Amethyst/Cobalt Road is identified as a major arterial with 100 feet of 
right-of-way. Since this street could be expected to carry a significant proportion of traffic traveling 
to the airport or other focilities from VictorvBle, perhaps It should be Induded as a Key Community 
Road. (1-13.3-3) 


Response: Cobalt/Amethyst Road is not currently a major arterial, but proposed to be bnproved to 
that status. Disturbance of lands to provide rradway upgrades is considered in the EIS based on 
reasonable piannkig factors and with as few specific references as practical due to the conceptual 
nature of afl the exiding plans for the reuse of the installatioa Land disturbance is then assessed 
against the possible environmental impacts. 


7.11 Comment: The EIS fals to adequately study foctors relating to traffic impacts or to discuss the 
impacts of traffic or other transportation components generated by the reuse alternatives on the 
cityofAdelanto. (20-13.20-15.20-17) 


Response: The Air Force conducted a comprehensive study to analyze projected traffic effects 
from each altemative on key community roads within the Vidor Valley. The results of this study are 
discussed ki Chapter 4 of the BS. The roadways which wM require upgrade under aH alternatives 
to maintain a level of service (LOS) E or better are identified. The inclusion of modeling efforts to 
arrive at the conclusions on traffic effects as wefi as other supporting information for the BS is not 
included in the document to minimize the bulk of an already large document The BS suggests

land area that it encompasses. If the same land area with logical adjacent land uses is evaluated 
tar each cdtsmative, the numbers would be higher for the other alternatives. (2-6,2-76,6-13,6^) 


Rasponaa: The comparison of utSity demands is based on properties directly developed in each 
proposal and the indirect developm^ due to the in-migratlon of tadustry and popultfion within the 
VictorVaNey. Theintemational Airport Alternative may result in less utlityconsurnption par acre of 
development within the boundaries shown, I3,426acres, versus the Proposed Acdoa 7,425 acres. 
However, the greater indirect employment, housing and commerciad/industriai activity generated 
by the international airport outside the confines of the alternative’s boundaries wl drive overall 
consumption above the other alternatives' levels. 


9.2 Comment: The EIS states that water wll be fMXJvided by local water purveyors. ItshoukJbe 
specified who the water purveyorwfll be/is. (2-24,6-29,6-101,7-15,19-2) 


Response: The issue of who wii purvey water to any of the proposed alternative uses of George 
AFB or future parcel owners is not an envirorunental issue arxl to beyond the scope of this 
document However, the Air Force wii continue to use its odsting water distribution system 
beyond the closure date to ensure firefighting and maintenance. 


9.3 CanUDfiHt: Contrary to the statement in Section 3.2.5.1 regarding the water supply at George AFB, 
interties do exist between the Air Force and the city of Adelanto(Adelanto Water District). The Air 
Force operates wells on land owned by the city of Adeianto arxl a state water well permit is held 
jointly by George AFB and the city of Adeianto. (1-22,2-58, &64) 


Response: The text has been reworded to darify the status of water supply at George AFB. 


9.4 Comment: The EIS does not adequately address water supply and water rights, and downplays 
the significance of water supply 'vkI water rights by lumping them with other utliUes. (1-23,1-30, 
6-88,7-1) 


Response: The EIS provides octensive discussion of water supply and demarxl in Section 3.2.S.1 
(Water Supply), Sec^ 3.4.2.3 (Groundwater), and correspondirig sections in Chapter 4. 


9.5 Comment: The assumption that local punreyors have or wH obtain the 6,833 acre4eet^year of 

water or to rationalize that it is appropriate to increase the overdraft another four to five percent is 
faliaciCiJS. (1-32,6-90,6-97,7-3,7-10) 


Response: The EIS does not mention a regional demand tar 6,833 af/yr of water. TheEiSdoes 
metaion that the water production demarxl tar the Proposed Action in year 2013 is expected to 
range from 5,365 to 7,660 aKyr. Under the conservative assumption that 50 percent of this water 
production is returned to the groundwater basin through deep percolation from wastewater 
treatmeia plants, irri^ption, lakes, etc., the actual loss (or consumption) equates to 2,682 to 
3,830 af/yr, or a 4 to 5 percent contribution to the grourxiwater overdr^ in the Upper Mojave Basin

Raaponae: The EIS states that MWA has a maximum aiiocation of up to 50,800 af/Vr and that 
expected demand in the future wli mean that MWA and other agenc^ wS have to ideiaify 
addklonat water sources. 


9.14 Comment: The EIS igrxxes relevant information concerning the George AFB and Adelanto area’s 
iocal water resources. There are various reports prepared for George AFB by private consultaras 
which provide important irtfbrmation concerning this area and should be incorfxxated irao the EIS 
dbojssion on water resource development (6-100,7-14,9-1) 


Reeponaa: In preparation of the EIS, the Air Force used avalable data arxi studi es for analysis of 
impacts to each resource. The Air Force did not ignore retevartMbrmation concerning any 
resource category. Much of the information contafoed in the numerous studies prepared fcir the 
U.S. Govemmera is derived from published reports and past studies. Several studi^ some of 
which resulted in only preliminary reports, were corfoucted In the past to analyze issues rat 
relevant to the BS arid therefore were nrx incorporated by reference in the QS. Someofthe 
references dted in the EIS (such as Report wt WawSi^jplyl/nprovemeras, George AFB, prepared 
by Lee and Ro Consulting Engineers, 1984) are in fact rejx^ prepared for George AFB by private 
consultants. 


9.15 Comment: It may be rrare accurate and precise to compare George AFB’s current consumptive 
water use with future project consumptive uses. (19-1) 


Resoonaa: MWAprojectfons are broken down by district These consumptive use values were 
used to extrapolate projected use to 2013. 

9.16 Comment: The BS should identify specific water quantity used for George AFB and volumes that 
are projected for the reuse altematives. For realistic comparison of water usage, the terms should 
be consumptive use per capita and total consumptive use. (19-3) 

Response: ThecurrentutlitydemandtablesinChapter4display water demand (consumptive 
use) for post-closure conditions (no reuse of George AFB, only normal anticipated develo|Mnent) 
and each alternative in mllion gallons per day. Per capita consumptive use would remain relatively

EPA’s representative. (19-4) 

Response: Section 4.2.4 States that new users would also be required to be in accordance with 
Victor Valley Wastewater Reclamation Authority (WWRA) requirements. In addition. Section 4.4.2 
states that new property users would be subject to NPDES permitting.

9.21 Comment: The EIS does not provide for solid waste disposal or identify impacts on the dty of 
Adelanto. (20*21) 


Response: Solid waste dispoeal for each dtemaOve is discussed in Chapter 4. The EIS does state 
that each altemative would not substantialiy alter the county’s short-and long-term plans for landm 
capacity expansion in the Victor VaHey. Community-specific effects were not addressed, as the 
new users of larxfflUs generated by the conceptual reuse of George AFB cannot at this time be 
identified as affecting one landfR over another. 


9.22 Commartf: The EIS does not adequately discuss the impact of wastewater treatment on the dty of 
Adelanto. (20-22.20-24) 


Raaponaa: Wastewater treatment for each alternative is discussed in Chapter 4. The effect on the 
WWRA for aR alternatives is that existing capacity wH be exceeded. Convnuiity spedfic effects 
were not addressed as several communities are members of the authority and wU need to deal 
with any contemplated reuse of George AFB coBecdveiy. 


9.23 Comment: The EIS should identify specific mitigation measures necessary to correct existing and 
future wastewater treatment (20-23) 


Reanonae: As discussed in Section 4.Z4 under MRigsdion Measures, the type(8) and extent of 
mitigations cannot at present be s pecWed, because they wodd depend on the spedBc operatin g 
procedures establish^ for the new users, the specific products u^, and the eqdpment used on

would affect those plans. In Section 4.2.4. ttreBS mentions that the MWA and individuai water 
purveyors in the Victor Valley are presently planning both short-and long-term infrastructure 
improvements in anticipation of subatandai rates of population growth within the Victor Valey. The

10.7 CfMnmant: The EIS should dearly demonstrate compliance with the land transfer recMrements of 
the Superfund Program {Section 120(h) of CERCLA]. (28-1,28-28) 


Response: The EIS is rK)t interxled to demonstrate compliance with federal land transfer 
requirements. This QS was produced to provide the public and the Air Force decision maker with 
an understanding of potential environmerrtal effects from an array of possible alternative uses 
resulting from the property disposal process. The Air Force, hov^er, is fully aware of ks 
requirement to bidude covenants in transfer documentation warranting that ail remedial action 
necessary to protect human health and the environment have been taken. 


The Afar Force’s IRP and real property transfer procedures and policies will satisfy CERCLA Section 
120 applicable requirements. Tfw appropriate documentation arxi guarantees that are required at 
transfer wU be provided as transfers are processed. 


The deed itself wH provide the guarantees; that document Is executed contemporaneously with the 
actual physical trarisfer of the property. The guarantees will be provided to the transferee on the 
deed, not to any other party, and no prior agreements are required. 


Under the FFA, priortotransferofany portion of either an area within which any release of 
hazardous substance has come to be located, or any other property which is necessary for 
performance of remedial action, the Air Force shall give written notice of that corxfition to the 
recipient of the property, in addition, at least 30 days prior to any transfer subject to CERCLA 
120(h), the Air Force shall notify all parties of the transfer and the provisions made for any 
additional remedial actions, if required. 


10.8 Comment: The BS should discuss how the reuse alternatives would be compatible with specific 
contaminated sites. (28-2,28-16,28-17,28-27) 


Response : Measurement of the degree and extent of contamination at suspected waste sites Is not 
complete. Therefore, a detailed discussion of how specific reuse alternatives would be compatible 
with specific contaminated sites is not possible at this time. The EIS does provide the reader with 
summary information regarding suspected waste sites and points out that general limitations on 
land use or delays to redevelopment may be encountered in areas overlying or adjacent to 
contaminated sites (Section 4.3). Further, the EIS has been revised to include a list of IRP 
documents avalabie for review which may give additional insight into the scope of the Air Force's 
CERCLA prograra 

In regard to future, more focused planning, the Afar Force’s DMT at George AFB is charged with the 
conduct of the IRP and the admintetrative actions resultant from property transfer negtttlations, etc. 
The coordination and faitegration of waste site characterization and rem^iation actions with 
possible future larxf uses wll be under one office. The DMT will be able to discuss laixl use 
limitations on portions of property overlying or adjacent to IRP sites as redevelopment is pursued 
by other entItiM at George Are. 

Additionally, the Air Force expects local zoning and other appropriate regulatory authorities to 
inquire into the suitability of properties at George AFB for future use. The Air Force stands ready to 
as^ these authorities in th^ determination as to what are suitable uses as tt, unlike the local 
authorities, has taw means to regulate redevelopment of property parcels once transferred.

Commant: The BS shoukJ prwent time frames for redevelopmani that are consistent With 
schedules for investigation and cleanup of cortfaminated sites. The status and schedule of 
remedial actions at the sites wll greatly influence the feasiblity, timing, and configuration of 
redevelopment and must be fuUy integrated with reuse plans. The BS should present the potential 
effects and consequences of each proposed land use and reuse aitemative on cleanup actions. 
Discussions should include, but not be limited to. potential impacts on remediation decisions, 
implementation schedules ^ remediation actions arxJ reuse plans, access, and site security. 

(28^. 28^. 28-29) 


Response: Redevelopment is not solely dependent on the cleanup of contaminated sites. NotaH 
George AFB properties are contaminated. As conceptual plans mature, based on the realities of 
the development market, a number of the land uses under consideration may be adapted to lands 
not contaminated. The Air Force not being the developer does not have that insight Thepolicfeg 
powers of the zoning and regulatory authorities, market conditions, and the public’s desire for 
redevelopment wU work to set overall time frames for deveiopment Any Air Force redevelopment 
time frames would, at best be poor estimates, based on the information availabie at this time. 


The status and schedule of remedial actions as pointed out may influence redevelopment and 
future developers of George AFB properties. To assist readers in comprehending the potential for 
delay from IRP site activities, the f7A schedule has been included in the EIS as suggested. The 
future developers of George AFB must integrate their reuse plans with realities of future remedial 
activities. The parties to the FFA wfli ail be sources of information for potential developers in 
addition to information already availabie at local libraries. 

The Air Force, through the IRP wfli assess the feasibility of land use at contaminated sites under the 
CERCLA process and wW make that information availabie to the public. The DMT. charged with 
cleanup and transfer of properties, wfli make decisions regarding contaminated site access and 
security as required. In accordance with Sections 28 and 37 of the FFA. the parties to that 
agreernent wfli also be kept informed of actions concerning reuse of property which is subject to, 
or which affects, remediai activities. 


10.10 ComiTwrTt! The EIS overstates the hazardous waste characterization effort presenting several sites 
as having final cleanup decisions. (28-4,28-21.28-24.28-31) 


Response: The text of Chapter 3 of the EIS has been changed to clarify status of IRP activities at 
certain sites. 


10.11 Comment: The DBS does not contain sufficient information pertaining to hazardous waste sites to 
fully assess environmental Impacts that should be avoided to fully protect public health and the 
environment (28^) 

Response: The EiS contains sufficient information on the IRP program to support the Air Force 
decision, which concerns property disposal. If an individual wants to krww more about the IRP 
investigttiions to date than is included in the BS. the locations of Pubito Information Ffles are given 
in Sec^ 3.3.3. The quantity of literature avalabie Is just too extensive to include in this BS or 
apperxf tott. 

10.12 Comment: Current and future cleanup goals may be significantly affected by reuse decisions and 
must be an integrai part of the evaluation of reuse aiterratives. (28-7.28-18.28-19)

R— p nfMi tt - Ciaanup goals may be affected by reuse dedsiont, and the convwM it aiw true, that 
reuse decisions may be affected by cleanup goals. These planning issues continue to come to 
the attention of the Air Force decision maker, developers, and the public during evaluation of ways 
to receive maximum doNar return on future property redevelopment or to best make use of public 
lands, negotiations on poterdai transfers, and die IRP process. 


As the IRP progresses, proposed cleanups and their ratlonaies wH be presented to the Air Force 
decision maker and the public in time to accomplish costs, feasiblity, and anticipa te d outcome 
imderCERCLA procedures. The information provided in this EIS Is a cursory summary of a 
process already established under CERCLA Future knowledge about contaminated parcels wi no 
doubt become a more integral part of the evaluation of reuse options among deveiopm and the 
pubiia However, it Is not crucial at this early stage of the pianriing process to have more than a 
basic UTKlerstanding of potential delays to r^eveiopment arxf environmental effects that may 
result if one action is pursued over another in the fiAure. The BS provides the basic Morrnation for 
that understanding as early as possible in the affected decision-making and planning processes. 

The information provided in the BS is a sianmary of a process already established under CERCLA 
procedures at George AFB, and, therefore, is not addressed beyorxi the summary review in this 
document 


10.13 Comment! A full disclosure of the process for Integrating reuse plans and remedial actions is 
essendai. A mechanism for resolving reuse and cleanup conflicts should be presented. (23-8, 
28 ^) 


Response! The mechanism for resolving reuse and cleanup conflicts and Involving EPA Region iX 
and the state of California is the FFA. A t«ct change within the BS has been incorporated to dearly 
point this out 

Section 28 of the George AFB FFA requires that the Air Force comply with Section 120 (h) of 
CERCLA in aH transfers of property. It also requires that at least 30 days notice of the trwisfer(s) be 
given to the parties of the FFA, along with ncxlce regarding provisions made for any remedial 
action. 


10.14 Comment! The implementation of the FFA will ensure that the environmental impacts associated 
with past waste activities at George AFB are thorougNy investigated and appropriate remediai 
action taken as necessary to protect the public health and the environmenL Ttie Ak Force must 
develop and submit a schedule for Remedial Design and Remediai Action after each Record of 
Decision (ROD) and Remedial Action could take up to 30 years for full impiementatioa (28>14, 
28-15) 

Response! The FFA provides a framework urxfer which the coordination of the deani^} at George 
AFB wB take place. The protection of the public's health by the Air Force and EPA Region IX is 
mandated under CERCLA arxf applicable regulations. Ren^ial design arwl deanup could take a 
number of years on parcels of George AFB. Parcels that may require deanup are under 
investigation at this time and as data becomes avalabie the full extent of deanup required and Its 
effect on short and long-term land use wU be more evident The IRP wH provide the public 
information on future events concerning the waste dean up efforts at George AFB. Itshouldalso 
be noted that the Final ROD wfll be issued in July 1995, not July 1996 as stated in the comment

10.15 Commant: The EIS does not present mitigation measures for potential Impacts to deenup actions. 
(28-20) 

Response: The Air Force will nd transfer from federal control properties requiring cleanup prior to 
satisfaction of CERCLA Section 120(h). Also, leasing of properties will not be considered for 
contaminated parcels or adjacent parcels if such a lease would in anyway interfere with the 
timeliness or effectiveness d a required site cleanup. If the Air Force may need easements or 
access to transferred or leased properties then the appropriate caveats \^l be induded in the 
transfer or lease documents before any reuse begins. 

10.16 Comment: The EiS needs to specify which of the hazardous waste sites cannot be developed due 
to remediation requirements. (28-22) 

Response: The Air Force cannot specify at this time which of the waste sites cannot be developed 
due to remediation requirements, as not erraugh is known about them. With additional information 
from the IRP process, such specifics may become known and subject to decisions under the 
CERCLA process, which has a full public disdosure program. 

In the Interim, property may be deeded out of federal ownership after all necessary remedial 
actions have been taken, if necessary. In addition. It is possible to lease property for private use 
prior to complete remediation, so long as the Air Force ensures that the lease does not interfere 
with tts obligations for remediation under CERCLA. Therefore, any portion of George AFB, 
induding presently contaminated property, may eventually be brought into condition for 
development, either through transfer of tide after remedial action is taken or through lease pending 
remedial action. 

10.17 Comment: Section 3.3.3 states that the type of hazardous wastes found are solvents, petrdeum 
products and various solid wastes when current information indicates other types of contaminants, 
such as radioactive material, munitions, paints may be present (28-23) 

Resixinse: Table 3.3-2 describes in greater detail the type of wastes found or thought to be in 
existence at each site. The wording of Section 3.3.3 has been changed to reflect the small 
amounts of radioactive, munitions, paints, acids, and medical wastes that are present at George 
AFB IRP sites. 

10.18 Comment: Section 3.3.3.I. Northeast Disposal Area, inaccurately states that the contamination is 
confined to the Upper Aquifer, and contains a conflicting statement about the presence of beruene 
in the groundwater. (28-2S) 

Response: The tod of Section 3.3.3.1 has been changed to correct the conflicting statement and 
clarify the extent of contamination. 

10.19 Comment: The EIS indicates that the levels of radioactivity fourxf in the Southeast Disposal Area 
near the radioactive disposal site are equivalent to "background" levels even though this has not 
been substantiated with validated data. (28-26) 

Response: As stated in Section 3.3.3.3, the levels of radioactivity are likely the result of natural 
occurrences in the area". This conclusion is drawn from the best avalable data TheAirForcewM 
be doing additionai testing in the area and the data from that testing will go through the "validation" 
process as required to ensure ail statistical review aixj equipment calibration requirements are met

10^ Comment: Tiered stte> and project-specific environmental analyses and documentation should be 
seriously considered for future development actions. (28-32) 


Response: The Air Force wll conduct analyses under the CERCXA process in its IRP activities at 
contaminated sttes. Future development pforts and actions of the transferee may be subject to 
requirements for environmental analyses by the transferee under CEQA. However, such 
development plans generally would not be sul^ect to further Air Force environmental analyses 
under NEPA. 


10.21 Comment: The IRP is vital for groundwater protection for the area. Califomia law allows 

redevelopment agencies to be exempt from the cost of hazardous material cleanup activities. This 
exemption should not allow the Air Force to be absolved of responsibfltty for hazardous material 
cleanup which might be discovered subsequent to conclusion of the George AFB Restoration 
Program. (19-7) 


Response: As discussed in Section 3.3.3, the Air Force has a continuing responsiblity under 
CERCLA 120h for all cleanup activities associated with past practices of the Air Force at George 
AFB.

11.1 Commaat: The EISfals to indude a detaled, site-specWcsetemic hazard analysis and earthquake 
ground motion expected. (6-102.20-25) 


Ragponaa: Section 3.4.l.2deecribe8 the seismic conditions of the region, the ROI, and the base 
spedflcaHy, thus alerting the reader to potentiai seismic hazards in the vicinity. 


A site-specific risk analysis is not required for the Air Force action of property disposal. The 
cordbrming guidelines followed by the high desert region of San Bernardino County do not go 
beyond thoee of the Uniform BuMing Code (UBC). Upgrade to meet current seistnic codes are 
required only for major additions or alterations and do not extend to the existing bulding. as long 
as the addition or alternative does not cause the ffidsting bulding or structure to be in violation of 
any of the provisions of the UBC. 


In addition, holdings in existence at the time of foe adoption of the UBC have their existing use or

WATER RESOURCES 


12.1 Comment: Contrary to Section 4.4.2.2. less than SO percent of the International Airport 

Alternative's airfield area will be overlain by asphalt, concrete, or other hardscape. The majority wM 
be left in as a natural state as possible, depending on drainage flow requirements. (2-77,6-83) 


Response : The EIS presents a probable case based on design of airfields In arid climates where 
turf establishment Is not a viable alternative for erosion control. 


12.2 Comment: The EIS should review the effect of the berm that has been constructed to protect 
George AFB from floods arxi which is presently constricting the Mojave River to a much narrower 
channel east of the former channel. (9-2) 

Response: The berm in question was examined in the field and appears to be a structure 
constructed in the mid-1970s by the San Bernardino County Rood Control District (P^) on land 
owned by the PCD off the base. A barrier to vehicles traveling along the top of the berm appears to 
have been installed recently. Since the main flow channel of the Mojave River (indicated by a line 
of cottonwoods lining the streambed) is approximately 250 yards to the east of the berm, the berm 
does not appear to affect any flows. Only an extremely high flow would reach this berm, and no 
evidence erf any erosion or stream flow redirection is present 

1 2.3 Comment : The EIS does not adequately address impacts on Mojave River system water supplies, 
espedaliy impacts on downstream users, including the city of Barstow. (18-1) 


Response: The QS does contain information on the use of water under the alternatives analyzed. 


12.4 Comment: Due to the potential impacts from water useage, the ROI should be increased to 
include the entire Mojave River System. (18-2) 

Response: The ROI chosen for this analyses was the Upper Mojave Basin because 95 percent of 
the population in the ROI resides in this area. A text change has been made in Section 4.4.2 to 
discuss impacts in the entire Mojave River System. 


12.5 Comment : The EIS states in Section 3.4.2.3, "Based on Pimie (1990), water budget calculations 
estimated that the Upper Mojave Basin will have to import approximately 56,000 af/yr by the year 
2010." The EIS should explain how the reuse alternatives wll meet this demand and stil allow 
adequate water supplies to the remainder of the system. (18-3) 

Response: As discussed in Section 1.2, the focus of this EIS is property disposal. Section 3.4.2.3 
states that for the alternatives analyzed to be supportable, utilities (including water) will have to be 
obtained from some source. This is an issue (or issues) which will need to be worked by the 
developer after Air Force transfer of the property. 

12.6 Comment: The EIS should address the quantity of potential runoff increases for a 50,100,500 year 
flood for the length of the Mojave River. (18-5)

account In the analysis. 


12.10 Comment: Section 3.4.2.3 of the BS Indicates ttiat "...some of the groundwater withdrawn from the 
basin is returned through deep percolation due to irrigation, wastewater fitratton plants, and lakea. 
the actual loss of groundwater from the basin is assumed to be about 45 percent of production." 
Please provide studies to support this statement (18-9)

AIR QUALITY 


13.1 Comment: The potfutant emission figures in Section 4.4.3 indicate that the International Airport 
Alternative wll generate substantiaiiy greater amounts of emissions. However, the other 
alternatives do not accoura for the residentiai «rd IrKlustrial land uses that wH surround the 
respective airport tacllties. This residentiai sector represents the most signMcanternissions source 
in the reckon (2>78,6-84) 

Rflsmonse: The pollutant emission figures in Section 4.4.3 reflect emission Increases associated 
with aH aspects of potential reuse. Including growth in residential, commercial, and industriai land 
use areas. Information on the breakdown of Increased emissions for each alternative by source 
category is contained in Appendix L The reuse alternative inventories were developed from 
exisl^ inventory information and may not r^ect the specifics of the eventual reuse scenario. 
However, given the present conceptual stage of reuse alternative development, the inventory 
Information Is considered to be adequately representative of the ttqiected emission increases. 

13.2 Comment: The EIS does not discuss air quality impacts on the City of Adelanto or Other 
incremental air quality impacts. (20-26.21 -6.21-8) 

Response: The EIS includes a comprehensive analysis of air quality impacts from Individual 
sources in Section 4.4.3. It also discusses air quality impacts tom each alternative on the 
Southeast Desert Air Basin. Community specific impacts are not included as the analysis is based 
on conceptual planning. As development occurs local regulatory authorities wll be able to predict 
with resolution not possibieatthistimewh^theeffectsmay be for different sectors of the Victor 
Valley. This resolution is not possible at this time due to the speculative nature of all aitematives. 

13.3 Comment : The BS does not adequately address aU potential air quality impacts resulting tom the 
reuse alternatives, which have the poteridai to create substantial direct arxl irxlirect criteria 
pollutants, particiiate matter less than 10 microns In diameter (PMio). and toxic emissions from 
several air pollution sources. (21-1.21-3.21-4.21-7) 

Response: Unfortunately, the level of detal requested pertaining to emission sources is not 
avaflabie arxf wll not be avalable until reuse pl«^ are more established. Such plans wH only 
become avalable after entities other than the Air Force control the properties that comprise 
George AFB. As this EiS is a part of that evolutionary process, data requested wll not be 
forthroming in this document The EiS does attempt based on the limited data avalable from the 
conceptual planning done for the aitematives. to quantify the impact of anticipated air sources by 
air modeling arxl add that to existing air quality data. The models use statistical information from 
like land uses to predict the case in the Victor Valley with redevelopment of George AFB. The 
nKXlels use the precursors of PMia reactive organic gases (ROG). arxl nitrogen oxides (NOx) to 
other criteria pollutants as that is the accepted state of air modeling for such a large ROI based on 
the data avalable on which to do the analysis. More specifics than what Is presented within the EIS 
prior to any preliminary design of focOities by a developer having obtained use of a land parcel is 
difficult 


13.4 CommetTt: The alternatives Should include a discussion Of emissions tom Stationary equipment 

such as internal combustion (1C) engines aixl distllate fuel generators for aircraft operations. 
National Guard activities, and fire protection operations. (21-2) 

Response: Stationary emissions from aircraft using the airfield are accounted for in the modeling. 

The steep slope of the graph for the International Airport's ROG emissions in Figure 4.4-2 starting 


George AFB Dl^josal and Reuse FEIS 








in 2003 is due to increased ground queue times by cK/lian aircraft operating on a crowded abfleid. 
Currently, there is rw active mlitary or Cai^)mia Air Guard traffic anticipated in George AFB reuse. 


13.5 Comment: The EiS does not address cumuiative air quaitty effects associated with the reuse 
lytematives. The alternatives are growth Inducing, which will result in irrcreased popuiation and 
employment In the Victor Valley and ROI. Therefore ensuing popuiation and empioymeni growth 
wU result In substantial increases of mobile, area. Indirect, and stationary source emissions in the 
DistricL (21-S) 


Response : Air quality rraxiels used in the preparation of the EIS accounted for (powth induced 
emissior» occuning as a result of population, peripheral development, aixl utility useage growth 
associated with all the alternatives beyond normal predictions for growth. 

13.6 Comment: Ground disturbances resulting from Implementation of the any of the reuse alternatives 
will generate significantly higher levels of fugitive dust emissions from all construction and 
operation activities associated with the proposed development (e.g. residential, commercial, and 
iixlustrial). Additionally improvements to existing infrastructure wU further exacerbate fugitive dust 
emissions. (21-9) 


Response : The effects of each of the proposed reuse alternatives on fugitive dust emissions is 
discussed In Section 4.4.3 of the EiS. 


13.7 Comment: To adequately address the level of significance of air quality impacts that may result 
from the reuse alternatives, ai! potential sources ^ air pollution should be identified, and such 
emissions quantified using a worst case scenario. Furthermore, the intensity of the impact after the 
above determination will depend on, but not be limited to, the type and number of construction 
equipment, hours of construction and aircraft operations, the number of construction and airport 
employees, types of fuel and fuel consumption rates for mobBe sources, patron and employee 
vehicle mBes traveled, and vehicle trips. (21*10) 

Response : The impact on air quality in the Southeast Desert Air Basin could be significant under 
all alternatives except the No-Action Alternative without a coordinated arxl aggressive executable 
action plan for air quality among all levels of government overseeing reuse of George AFB. The 
analysis in the EIS contains sufficient data to indicate the magnitude of the potential problem and 
provide the decision maker with needed information. 


13.8 Comment : The recommended mitigation measures do not adequately mitigate ail the potential air 
quality impacts to insignificance. (21 *11) 

Response: Based on information available to the Air Force at this juncture. Section 4.4.3 of the BS 
sufficiently addresses mitigation measures to lessen the extent of air quality impacts. There is no 
legal requirement to mitigate impacts to "nonslgnificance." 

13.9 Comment: The EIS should assess cumuiative impacts relative to the nonattainment air pollutants 
that may affect the District's attainment demonstration as outlined in San Bernardino County Air 
Pollution Control District's (SBCAPCD's) Air Quality Attainment Plan. (21 *12) 

Response: Data presented Is best available and provides abBity to assess potential nonattainment 
or attainment based on conceptual planning done to date.

alternatives to adequately mitigate signiflcam air quality impacts. Therefore. specMc air quality 
mWgation measures tar aN air poUidant sources should be developed. It is recommended thitt 
George AFB and SBCAPCO staff initiate and establish a vM)rking group for the purpose of 
kfentirylng potendai air quality impacts and appropriate mitigation measures. (21-13,12-15) 


Response: The Air Force endorses the formation of a vrorfcing group tar the purpose of identifying 
potential air quality Impacts and appropriate mitigation measures among the locd goverrvnentai 
agencies that wM oversee the dvllan development of George AFB. The Air Force, hoM«ver, should 
not be looked at to be a founder of such a group. The affected community may wish to encotaage 
such a group’s formation and agenda. The Ak Force will provide informal as requMted. 


13.11 Comment: Unavoidable air quality impacts should be fully discussed and justified to demonstrate 
and disclose adverse air quality effects from the alternatives. (21-14) 


RftapniMA- See rMponse to Comment 13-10. 


13.12 Comment : The EIS does not discuss air quality impacts to the Los Angeles (LA) Basin. The 
Santa Ana winds deanse the LA Basin, if the air quality decreases in the Vidor Valley area the 
Santa Ana winds wii draw this air into the LA Basin, decreasing its air quaitty. (25-1) 


Response: The Cailtamia Air Resources Board (ARB) has published a document titled Proposed 
tdentiticstion of Districts Affected ty Transport^ Air Pollutants which Contribute to Violations of 
the State Ambient Air Qualify SUuidard for Ozone (1989). In the document the ARB states that no 
research has been conduded to date on the potential for adverse transport from the Southeast 
Desert Air Basin. The ARB conduded tttat this question should be looked into further when more 
data are avalable. 


13.13 Comment: The EIS does not discuss air quality impacts resulting from the additional air passenger 
and traffic in the South Coast Air Basin should the International airport not be butt, requiting 
passengers to use already overcrowded drports. (1-24) 


Response: These impacts are discussed in the document as part of the dosure baseline. 


13.14 Comment : The EPA does not believe the BS has demonstrated compliance with Section 176(c) of 
the Clean Air Act, which requires federal agencies to assure that actions conform to an approv^ 
imptementation plan and wtt not cause or contribute to any new violation of any standard, increase 
the frequertcy or severity of any existing vioiation. or delay timely attainment of standards. (28-10, 
28-38) 


R«mpnn««» Towhat extsTti the conformity provision in Section 176(c) apply to base dosure and 
associated property disposal actions is undear, it is also premature to state that disposal of 
George AFB and potertiial indirect effects of reuse would not contann to an approved 
bripiemeritation plan. The Air Quality Attairunerti Plan for the San Bernardino County portion of the 
Southeast Desert Air Basin has not been approved. Except for ensuring the Air Force’s IRP 
responsibIMes are fuNOed, the environmental impacts associated with reuse activities are beyond 
the Air Force’s supervisory control and thus not reasonably quantifiable for purposes of a 
conformity detemninatioa Potential mitigation measures that may be implemented by the reusers 
to lessen air quality impacts pursuant to regulations and permit conditions issued by the air 
pollution conM district or EPA are also beyond the Air Force’s supervisory control.

George AFB after disposal is not an Air Force project nor subiect to Air Force supervisory control. 
Requiring any necessary mitigation measures for potontiai air quality impacts is within the 
jurisdiction of the state arxf federal agencies with regilatory authority over the post-dispoaal reuse 
and development of George AFB. 


13.16 Comment: An interagency agreement or Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) should be 
developed to ensure cornpliance with the Clean Air Act and timely state of CaUfbmia subinittal to 
EPA of adequate attainment plans simlar to the one for Pease AFB, New Hampshire. (28-12.28-42) 


Rflannnafl: The Air Force encourages EPA Region IX, the state of Callfbmia and a redevelopment 
agency or agencies for George AFB to develop an understanding of how local redsveiopment of 
George AFB can best meet environmental objectives. EPA Region IX and the state of CalHomia 
may desire to take on negotiations simlar to those conducted between the state of New 
Hampshire and EPA Region I. 


13.17 Comment: The Increase in traffic combkied with increased traffic generated by other regional 
reuse actions could generate a significant cunruiative impact to air cpjality. (28-34) 

Response: The Callfbmia Oean Air Act requires severe nonattainment areas to have no net 
increase in vehide emissions after 1997 (Health and Safety Code 40920(a)(2)). The primary control 
strategies currently being developed and implemented by the state and local air dtatrids to reduce 
moble source emissions include measures to reduce talpipe emissions, the use of dean. 
less-poHuting fuels, and redudng the number and length of vehide trips. These strategies, in 
combination with programs such as ridesharing, work week reductions arxf flextime, parking 
management, trarisit improvements, and growth maraigement, are expected to be successful In 
counteracting the effects of bicreased moUe sowce activity associated with economic arxj 
population growth. Induding increased vehide activity associated with reuse actions. 


13.18 Comment: EPA recpjests additional information on the Air Force’s Emissions and Dispersion 
Modeling System (EDMS) In order to compare it to their approved nraxleis. (28-39) 


Reanonsa: Information on the EDMS model has been provided to EPA Region IX 


13.19 Comment: Any ozone analysis should be of projected emissions. (28-40) 


Ozone was analyzed in terms of the projected amounts of RCXa and NOx which would 
be generated by the reuse alternatives (Section 4.4.3). ROG and NOx are considered to be the 
primary precursors to ozone fbrmatioa 


13.20 Com ment The EiS should address the consistency of projected emissions with the CaINbmia 
Ctoan Air Act attainment plan and provide a ful description of modelling assumptions. (28-41) 


Reaoflfiae: Consistency of project emissions with the attainment plans of the San Bernardino 
County Air Pollution Control OMrict is fuly described in Section 4.4.3 of the EIS. Descriptions of 
the assumptions used for the EDMS modeling are also provided in Section 4.4.3.

Rasponaa: The SBCAPCD does not have any rules or regulations governing the creation or 
banking of Emission Reduction Credits (ERCs). The district is currently preparing such rules to 
govern the calculation and banking procures; these rules are ttg)ected to be approved by EPA 
in 1992. In discussing the proposed rulM, the district has stated that it may be poasttile to transfer 
ERCs v4ien the source of the ERCs is sold or transferred. 


13.22 Commant! The air quality cumulative impacts analysis should consider the effects of road 

improvements plus the shifting patterns of land use which could adversely impact local air quality 
characteristics. (2846) 


Response: The Air Force is aware of a widening of U.S. 395 in the ROI; however, no planning for 
widening of M5 to currently being worked by Caitrans. Potentiai impacts of road projects which 
are in planning have been addressed by the BS. The BS also considers the effect of the 
accelerated development of the High Desert due to reuse of the George AFB properties.

water aupply ter tha prepe a ad prejaet will ha tumlahad hy laeal

will ha n aadad raglanally, and tbanoa eaneludaa that this will add 
only tour ta tlva pareant (4t • St) ta tha groundwater avardratt. 
2 1 Tha OBXS alaa wrongly Intam that eATB la eo*ewnar with tha City at 
Adalanto of 3.14 eta at approprlatlva watar rights contained In

Since Its origin In lt41, SAfS has haan haunted hy eha need to

Dear Lloutonant colonol tartol: 

OlUfT nVXMMNINTAL INFACT STATmilT (OfIS). OZSfOiAL AMO AlOtt 
or aiOMI Alt rOACI SASt. SAM ■miARDXIIO county* CAUrOKMZA 

mo purpeoo of tlilo latter is to eoaeent and eake 
recceeendattons on the dlspoeal and reuse of oeorge Air roree 
•see (GAfO) and to ^aproue and eapedite envirenaantal res p o ns e 
actions at GAfO. 

me State involvsssnt in cleanup of Bilitary bases slated 
for closure, such as GAFB. is eotivated by several factors, 
rirat, the state has legal responsibility to ensure that state 
snvironaental cleanup and ssnagessnt laws are obeyed. Second, 
the state has a sovereign duty to ensure that cleanup plans and 
actions Bill result in sites that will no longer threaten water 
quality, the health and safety of the public and/or the 
onvironBsnt. rinally, we have an ecenosic incentive to ensure 
that appropriate cleanup actions are prooptly taken. OATt, which 
is slated for closure, will eventually be transferred for 
civilian use. merefore, it is inportant that we oversee cleanup 
and cosplianee actions at the base so that the state and local 
cosnunitiaa do not inherit polluted property. It is also 
inportant for the cleanup to take place in a eiaaly Banner, to 
niniBiae econoBie dislocation in the coaBunity. 

He believe that both the Cebprehensive tnvironbsntal 
kesponse, Conpansation and Liability Act (CShCCA) and the 
Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCIA) provide 
opportunities for the State to aatabliah strong roles in 
overseeing cleanup activities at GATS. 

Pursuant to CSRCtA Section 110, the State of California 
entered into a Pederal Pacility Agreesant (PPA) with the 
united States Cnvironaental Protection Agency (BPA) and the 
Oepartaent of Defense (000) for the cleanup of silitary bases 
which are on the National Priorities List, me PPA provides an

The State recogniaes that there is an interest, both within 
the Air Pores and within the local ceoHunities, to proeptly sake 
land and facilities on GAPR available to the private sector for 
interlB use and peet-closuro use. He need to sake sure that 
activities associated with base reuse are indeed in the bast 
interest of the public and do net conflict with or Ispsda tbs 
cleanup work as required by the PPA, federal and state laws. It 
is not in the public interest to reuse property that has not been 
cleaned up. 

mis sub)eet docuaont indicates that reuse and developBsnt 
of SOBS properties nay be delayed as a result of Installation 
Restoration Pregraa (ZRP) activities, mis deeusant should be 
sere specific in addressing where, when and hew the IRP 
activities will affect reuse. The deeuBsnt should specify that 
reuse would only be delayed for investigative and clean up 
purposes. 


The Air Perce should notify and involve the State as soon as 
possible regarding any proposed base reuse or changes in its 
cleanup policies or priorities. Many areas of the base have yet 
to be characterised. Additionally, under the currant PPA 
schedule best of the base will not be characterised until ifS4 or 
later. The OCXS euet eoneidor the PPA and should Include 
Informstlon regarding public invelvsBant in the CIRCIA procoso 
through the Toehnieal Rowiow COMittoo (TRC) eochanise. 

The PPA schedule with spplicabls revieione should bs ssds ae 
an appendls te tha sub)eet deeusant. He need to knew, at the 
aarliaot atago poeelble, any plane for perceiisation or roue# 
ocheduio for GAPR. If baee reuee sffoete the PPA aebedule, 
pleaae be awere that according te section if of the PPA, ail 
partiee Bust agrss te any eha^ee in the schedule or PPA. 

He believe thet the key to sueeeeeful sad svpsditious 
eisanup at GAPR is eobBuniestien snd eoopsrstion. Ths OapsrtBent 
of Osfsnsa, fsdarsl snd ststs rsgulstery sgeneiss and local 
eoBBunities naod te work together te case to a cenaonsus on 
issuoo relating to the eloanup and rouaa of this closing bsss. 
Addltionslly, rouss sutherity snd petsntisi dovslopsrs nsod te bo

GEORGE AFB CLOSURE EIS RECORD OF DECISION 


George AFB Disposal and Rbusb FEIS 





RECORD OF DECISION 


CLOSURE OF GEORGE AIR FORCE BASE 


The Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) has been prepared to assess the 
potential environsiental impacts from the closure of George Air Force Base (AFB). 

The closure is the result of the Base Closure and Realignment Act (Public Law 
100-526; the "Act”) and the recoimiendations of the Defense Secretary's Commission 
on Base Realignment and Closxire. The Secretary of Defense approved those 
recommendations and annoimced that the Department of Defense would implement them. 
The Congress did not pass a Joint resolution disapproving the recommendations 
within the time allotted by the Act. Therefore, the Act now requires the Secretary 
of Defense, as a matter of law, to Implement those closures, including that of 
George AFB. All aircraft and personnel will be withdrawn from George AFB, and the 
base will be closed. There is a possibility that not ail the F-4s will move to 
Mountain Home as stated in the EIS. The world situation requires continued force 
retructuring and reorganizing in response to Air Force budget reductions. 

Therefore, other force structure options are being considered and will be addressed 
in the President's Fiscal Year 1992 Budget. 

The Act also makes the Secretary of Defense responsible for management and disposal 
of the closed Bases. Therefore, in addition to the EIS on the closure of George 
AFB, a second EIS will be prepared on the final disposition of base property. This 
second EIS will address potential reuse of the base and the environmental 
implications of the various reuse opportunities. The Air Force will include in 
this second EIS proposals for base reuse developed in the community reuse plans. 

In the EIS the Air Force has made commitments to study and respond to any potential 
problems at George AFB. Although some of these commitments are the result of legal 
requirements, they are all nevertheless consistent with the Air Force's desire to 
close the Base safely and carefully. Listed below is a summary of the major 
commitments made in the EIS: 

Clean-up and removal of all PCB-contaminated transformers and capacitors will 
be completed prior to the closure of George AFB in accordance with the Toxic 
Substances Control Act and with Air Force regulations. 

Prior to the sale of Base properties, a thorough survey for asbestos 
(including review of facility records, visiial inspection, and, where 
appropriate, intrusive inspection) will be conducted by the Air Force. The 
Air Force policy on asbestos is described in Appendix C of the EIS. 

Plans to remove 14 USTs at George AFB were initiated prior to the announced 
Base closure; these tanks will be removed as planned by acquiring the needed 
permits from the San Bernardino Department of Environmental Health Services. 

Temporarily close in-place 63 Underground Storage Tanks (USTs) for possible 
reuse by a new user pending approval by the San Bernardino Department of 
Environmental Health Services of a UST-Closure Plan to be developed by the 
Base in 1990. Temporary closure is limited to two years by San Bernardino 
Cotinty Department of Health Services and County Fire Codes. All USTs will be 
tested for leaks; any found to be leaking will be removed by the Air Force and 
the site will be remediated. All actions will be coordinated with the State 
of California and with EPA Region IX. 


B-1 






Dispose of oil/water separators except for those that may be needed after Base 
closure. If a new user does not require the oil/water separators, a plan will 
be developed for their disposal. Those not disposed of will be decontaminated 
in accordance with State and Federal requirements. 

Closure of the hazardous waste storage facility requires formal closure plans 
in compliance with the Resource Conservations and Recovery Act. The Closure 
Plan has been submitted to the EPA as part of the Facility Operations Plan 
administered by the Environmental Compliance Branch at George AFB. 

Drain above-ground bulk storage tanks and purge them of flammable gases. 

Dispose of wastes at the hazardotis waste storage facility in accordance with 
requirements of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act and with California 
Administrative Code, Title 22. 

Dismantle and, if needed, decontaminate the wastewater treatment plant at 
George AFB that was in service prior to 1980. If clean-up is required, a 
study will be prepared to identify and evaluate clean-up strategies. Money 
for any clean-up is expected to be available through the Defense Environmental 
Restoration Account. 

Coordinate Base closure efforts with Caltrans regarding the transport of any 
heavy equipment along California State highways. 

Initiate an archaeological and architectural survey of the Base; coordinate 
results with the California State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO). 

Initiate a biological survey of the Base for threatened and endangered species. 

Continue with the Installation Restoration Program (lElP). Enter into a 
Federal Facilities Agreement with EPA Region IX and the State of California to 
provide an enforceable framework for -investigating and 
cleaning up contaminated sites under the Comprehensive Environmental 
Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) pursuant to the 
placement of George AFB on the National Priorities List (NPL). 

Award a caretaker contract to protect and provide minimum essential 
maintenance to the buildings and grounds at George AFB, pending property 
disposal. 

Many of the commitments described above and in the Final EIS deal with 
established processes. The detailed outcome of these processes will often be 
dependent on investigations and coordination still in progress. Th\is, the 
Final EIS could not always provide the details of specific commitments desired 
by commentors. This lack of detail, however, is not an indication of a lack 
of interest; the Air Force is committed to a Base closure that is responsive 
to environmental concerns and will work with Federal and State agencies to 
achieve that result. 



ImpacCs froa Base closure are expected to be either negligible or beneficial 
to the environment. Because one of the reuse options for George AFB includes 
a coaaercial airport, the Air Force reconunends that no changes in land use 
near the Base be implemented by nearby communities until a decision on reuse 
is made. Military retirees and their dependents will be adversely affected by 
the closure of George AFB because Base facilities and Base services will no 
longer be available locally. 

Many commentors questioned whether the Air Force's commitment to the cleanup 
of hazardous waste sites on Base would continue after the Base closes. George 
AFB was placed on the NFL on February 21. 1990. The Air Force is liable for 
clean up tinder Sections 107 and 120 of CERCLA, 42 U.S.C. sections 9607 and 
9620. Pursuant to CERCLA section 120, the Air Force is responsible for 
expeditious performance of investigations and remedial actions (with 
provisions for public participation). George AFB will enter into an 
Interagency Agreement (lAG) with EPA and the State of California. This 
agreement establishes an enforceable framework and time frame for all parties 
in conducting response actions under CERCLA. EPA possesses statutory 
authority over the selection of remedial actions for the site. Funding for 
the cleanup activities under the FFA will be handled through the Air Force 
IRP, part of a larger Department of Defense (DoD) Defense Environmental 
Restoration Program (DERF) appropriation. 

The Air Force will be responsible for the cleanup of on>Base contamination 
caused by Air Force activities at any stage of the closure and reuse 
processes. All property transfers will be conducted in compliance with CERCLA 
Section 120 (h). All cleanup activities will be conducted in accordance with 
Federal, State, and Air Force regulations. The Air Force, Region IX of the 
EPA, and the State of California will be involved in decisions on the cleanup 
of contaminated sites. 

In view of all of the above, I have decided to proceed with the closure of 
George AFB in accordance with the approaches described in the EIS and in this 
Record of Decision. The Air Force has adopted all practicable means to avoid 
or minimize environmental harm. The EIS did not identify any alternative 
strategies for closing the base which are environmentally preferable to the 
one adopted.

APPENDIX C 
NOTICE OF INTENT 


The following notice of intent was circulated by the Air Force and published in the Federal Register on 
September 28.1990 in order to provide public notice of the Air Force’s intent to prepare an Environmental 
Impact Statement of disposal and reuse of George Air Force Base. This Notice of Intent has been retyped 
for the purposes of darity and legiblity. 


NOTICE OF INTENT 

TO PREPARE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT 
DISPOSAL/REUSE OF GEORGE AFB, CALIFORNIA 


The United States Air Force will prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to assess the potential 
environmental impacts of disposal and reuse of the property that is now George Air Force Base (AFB) near 
Victorville, Califomia. On 20 June 1990, the Air Force signed a Record of Decision (ROD) for closure of 
George AFB. 

The disposal/reuse of EIS wfll address disposal of the property to public or private entities and the potential 
impacts of reuse alterrratives. All available property wHI be disposed of in accordance with provisions of the 
Base Closure and Realignment Act. Public Law 100-526, and applicable federal property disposal 
regulations. 

The Air Force is planning to conduct a scoping and screening meeting on October 29,1990, at 7:00 p.m. in 
conference room "C”, Holiday Inn, Victorvlle. CA (1-15 & Palmdale Road). The purpose of the meeting is to 
determine the environmental issues and concerns to be analyzed, to solicit comments on the proposed 
action and to solicit proposed dlsposal/altematives that should be addressed in the EIS. In soliciting 
disposal/reuse inputs, the Air Force intends to consider ail reasonable alternatives to the proposed action 
offered by any Federal, State, and local government agency and any Federally-sponsored or private entity 
or individual with an interest in acquiring avalable property at George AFB. These alternatives will be 
analyzed in the EIS. The resulting environmental impacts w8l be considered in making disposal decisions 
to be documented in the Air Force’s Rnal Disposal Plan for George AFB. 

To ensure the Air Force wll have sufficient time to consider public inputs on issues to be included in the 
disposal/reuse EIS and disposal alternatives to be Included in the Final Disposal Plan, comments and reuse 
proposals should be forwarded to the address listed below by November 30.1990. However, the Air Force 
will accept comments at the address below at any time during the environmental impact analysis process.

APPENDIX F 
METHODS OF ANALYSIS 


1.0 INTRODUCTION 


The purpose of this Environmental Impact Statement (EiS) is to evaiuate the 
probable environmental impacts of disposal of George AFB. Since disposal 
necessarly involves the potential for reuse, the EIS evaluates the effects of 
reusing the base after is no longer under the management of the Air Force. 

Future reuse of the site is uncertain in ks scope, activities, aixi timing. This EIS 
addresses these uncertainties by evaluating alternative reuse scenarios. These 
scenarios are Intended to encompass the fuU range of reuses, aixi their 
associated environmental Impacts, which are reasonably foreseeable due to 
disposed of the base. 

The scenarios are defined on the basis of (1) proposals put forth by affected local 
communities and interested Individuals, (2) general land use planning 
considerations, and (3) Air Force-developed alternatives to provide a broad range 
of reuse options for impact analysis. The overall objective in defining the 
scenarios addressed in this EIS is to span the anticipated range of reuse activities 
which are reasonably likely to occur. 

Reuse scenarios considered in this EIS must be sufficiently detailed to permit 
environmental analysis. Initial concepts and reuse plans are taken as starting 
points for scenarios to be analyzed. Avalabie information on any reuse 
alternative is then supplemented with ecorxxnic, demographic, transportation, 
and other planning data to provide a reuse scenario sufficientiy detaled for 
environmental analysis. 

These planning data were derived from the various analysis methods for each 
foctor of the affected environment under each reuse scenario. In those instances 
where the methodology was straightforward or could be succinctly presented, a 
description of It appears in the main body of the EIS. Methodologies that were 
more detaled or which require lengthy discussion are presented in this appendix; 
the methodology for noise is presented separately in Apperxlix J. 

2.0 EMPLOYMENT AND POPULATION 

2.1 EMPLOYMENT PROJECTIONS 

The number of jobs on site is a major d^erminant of scenario-related traftic, utlity 
use. air emissions, and other environmental foctors. Employment projections are 
developed for two major phases of activity on the site: construction and 
operation. Together these two phases comprise on-site or direct jobs generated 


George AFB Disposal and Reuse FEIS 


F-l 






by a reuse scenario. These direct jobs create secondary jobs in the region as a 
result of reuse-related spentttig and multiplier effects. 

Construction Jobe 

Construction jobs are estintated from the list of feiclities developed in the land use 
analysis described below. The value of construction is estimated from the scope 
of newtadMesto be bull, the scope of renovation likely to be ret^iired for reuse 
of existing fadlties, and the cost per square foot for construction of specified 
foclity types based on industry standards. If a proponent of a potential reuse 
plan has prepared construction value estimated for key fadlties, these are used 
as appropriate. 

Renovation values are further based on judgemental estimates of the extent to 
which renovation approaches the cost of replacement construction. For 
example, minor renovation of fodities may be budgeted at a fraction (15 percent, 
for example) of the cost of new construction for comparable fadWes. Major 
renovation would be budgeted at a higher rate. 

Data and coefficients regarding construction jobs relative to the value of 
construction are then used to project direct construction employment 
Comparable coefficients also are used to forecast site-related spending for 
construction materials arxl services In the region. This spending is used as an 
input to estimate secorxlary j<fos related to site reuse. 

Operation Jobs 

The full buldout land uses are the basis for projecting operation employment over 
a 20-year reuse horizon. Ratios of jobs to acreages of specific land uses, floor 
areas of fadities, and other focSity characteristics (such as hotel rooms, 
classrooms, hospital beds, and other factors specific to a particular use) are 
utilized to estimate full buHdout jobs associated with each land use. If a plan 
proponent has developed job estimates for key land uses, these are incorporated 
into the analysis. 

The number of jobs associated with each land use is then ‘phased in” over time 
according to a judgemental buldout or absorption schedule. This schedule 
reflects assumptions regarding the rate at which the site is developed. Some 
activities may be fultybult out ki a short period of time; others may be at only 
partial buldout at the erxl of 20 years. 

Site-related regional spending for goods and services is then estimated from data 
on regional sales and inter-industry linkages. These spending projections are 
used as inputs in calculating secondary jobs. 


F-2 


George AFB Disposal end Reuse FEIS 





Secondary Jobs 


Secondary or indirect off-site jobs are projected from the dfrect empioyment and 
spending forecast for each reuse scenario. Direct jobs are used to calculate 
payrolls, which In turn are used to estimate consumer spending in the region. 
Consumer spending and site-related outlays for goods and services are used as 
inputs to a multiplier analysis of the regiorvsl economy. These multipliers, 
reflecting the round-by-round expansion effects of initial site-related spending, are 
developed by the U.S. Department of Commerce. 

2.2 POPULATION PROJECTIONS 

Site-related direct and secondary jobs are the key inputs to developing 
projections of population impacts associated with site reuse scenarios. 
Assumptions regarding iocal hires and worker relocation determine the extent of 
worker in-migration due to the activities on the site. 

Dependents are estimated based on demographic factors regarding famiiy size. 
Naturai increase of in-migrating workers and their famHies is estimated from 
recent demographic trerxJs for the region. Total population impacts are 
distributed among communities within the study region based on current 
residential distributions of base civilian personnel and related factors. 


3.0 LAND USE 


Scenario development includes an identified uitimate or fuii buildout plan for 
reuse of the site, as well as considerations of interim development over a 5-, 10-, 
and 20-year schedule. The base acreage is ailocated under each plan to uses 
identified as the long-term use of each parcel on the site. Such potential reuses 
may include an airport, aviation support, aircraft maintenance, industrial, 
commercial, residential, educational, and recreational or open space land uses. 
The uses applicable to a scenario are specific to that scenario and that site, and 
are based on a mix of these or other land uses. Some scenarios may, by their 
nature, require use of adjacent off-base land. Such usage is identified where 
appropriate, although primary emphasis is placed on on-base land uses. 

These full buldout uses are based on the reasonable possibility, rather than 
probabHity, that they may occur. Inclusion of a land use, or an entire scenario, is 
not based on any judgement that such a land use is feasible or represents a 
market-determined use of the land. Rather, if there is a reasonable possibility that 
a particular reuse may occur, as evidenced by proposals for that reuse or known 
cases where such larxf uses have occurred elsewhere, that reuse would be 
included in one or more scenarios. 

Given a specification of land uses for the site, the types of facilities to be 
renovated or constructed on the site are then determined. Roor area ratios for 


George AFB Dispose and Reuse FEIS 


F-3 



naMf faclities are developed using typical Industrial standards and/or community 
development ratios. Ancillary faclities, such as road improvements, also are 
Identified. 


The result of this effort are (1) a set of reuse plans, one for each scenario to be 
analyzed, that identify the use of each on-site parcel, and some off-site parcels as 
appropriate, for each scenario; arxf (2) a list of major facilities to be constructed 
or renovated, with an indication of the scope (such as square footage of floor 
area) for each land use. 

4.0 TRANSPORTATION 

The region of influence for the transportation anaiysis includes the Victor Valley 
with emphasis on the area surrounding George AFB. Within this geographic area, 
the analysis examines the existing principal road, air, and ral transportation 
networks, including those segments of the transportation networks in the region 
that sen/e as direct or mandatory indirect linkages to the base, and those that are 
commonly used by George AFB personnel. 

4.1 ROADWAYS 

The number of vehicle trips expected as a result of specific land uses on the site 
is estimated for each projection year on the basis of direct on-site jobs and other 
attributes of on-site land uses (such as the number of hotel rooms, projected 
airport passenger volume, and other factors). The Institute of Traffic Engineers is 
the principal data source for planning relationships among trips and these various 
attributes. 

Vehicle trips are then allocated to the local road network using prior patterns and 
expected destinations and sources of trips. The local road network is adjusted to 
account for changes over time from presently budgeted road capacity 
improvements and Improvements required by the proposed reuse scenarios, 
improvements in service may Include road widening, intersection upgrades, and 
mass transit routings in the planning stages. 

Traffic volumes typically are reported as either the daily number of vehicular 
movements in both directions on a segment of roadway averaged over a fiil 
caierxiar year (average annual daily traffic [AADT]) or the number of vehicular 
movements on a road segment during the average peak hour. The average peak 
hour volume typically is about 10 percent of the AADT (Transportation Research 
Board, 1985). These values are useful Indicators in determining the extent to 
which the roadway segment is used and in assessing the potential for congestion 
and other problems. 

Traffic flow conditions are generally reported in terms of level of service (LOS), 
rating foctors that represent foe general freedom (or restriction) of movement on 

F-4 George AFR Disposed and Reuse FEIS 








roadways (Table 3.2*1). The LOS scale ranges from A to F, with low-volume, 
high-speed, free-flowing conditions classified as LOS A. LOS E Is represerSative 
of conditions that, although not favorable from the point of view of the motorisL 
provide the greatest traffic volume per hour. With minor biterufAions, however, 
LOS E wll deteriorate to LOS F (Transportation Research Board, 1985). As traffic 
volumes Increase or traffic-handling capacities along given roadways decrease, 
free-flow corKiitions become restricted and LOS deteriorates. LOS F represents 
breakdown, stop-and-go corKiitions. Levels of service generally are evaluated 
and reported for typical dear-weather conditions. 

Traffic flow conditions usually are nnost congested during morning and evening 
peak hours and depend on the physical characteristics of the roadway, traffic 
volumes, and the vehicular mix of traffic. A common design goal is to provide 
peak-hour service at levels no lower than LOS C or D. A typical two-lane rural 
highway will have a maximum two-way design capacity of 2,000 to 2,800 
passenger vehfdes per hour. On such roads, travel is affected substantially by 
traffic in the opposing lane, and by curves arxl hills, all of which impair a 
motorist’s ability to pass safely. By contrast, each lane of an interstate highway 
(divided with restricted access) provides a capacity of about 2,000 vehides per 
hour under a wide range ai conditions, in urban or suburban settings, the 
capacity of signalized intersections that restrict traffic flow tends to influence LOS 
more than the capacity of a roadway segment. LOS ratings presented in this 
study were determined by peak-hour traffic volumes and capacity for key 
roadways. 

The transportation network of the Victor Valley was examined to identify potential 
Impacts to LOSs arising from dosure baseline conditions (caretaker status of 
George AFB) and effects of alternative future scenarios. Changes in traffic 
vdumes and peak-hour LOS ratings were projected for road segments (exduding 
intersections and highway ram^). LOS ratings were based on Highway Capacity 
Manual recommendations (Transportation Research Board, 1985). 

Traffic generation associated with an airport assumed 1.6 daily trips and 
0.11 peak-hour trips per passenger. Traffic volume associated with the industrial 
park, aviation support, and business park was based on the number of projected 
employees (ranging from 3.41 to 4.56 daly trips and 0.08 to 0.56 peak-hour trips 
per employee). Hotel-generated traffic projections assumed 7.27 daily trips and 
0.58 to 0.62 peak-hour trips per room. 

Traffic vdumes for the ROI were derived from the AADT counts provided by 
Caitrans and traffic analyses performed in support of base reuse. Changes in 
traffic vdumes arising from land use changes at George AFB were estimated and 
resulting vdume changes on the local road network were determined. Resulting 
changes in peak-hour LOS ratings were then determined. Changes in work and 
associated travel patterns were derived by assigning or removing workers (by 
place of residence) to or from the most direct commuting routes.

4.2 AIRSPACE 


Data Soureaa 

Airspace use around an airport environment is driven primarily by such fectors as 
runway alignment, surrounding obstacles and terrain, air traffic control and 
navigational aid capabllties, proximity of other airports/airspace uses in the area, 
and noise considerations. These same factors normally apply regardless of 
whether the airport Is used for mflitary or dvl aircraft operations. For this reason, 
the baseline used a predosure reference in characterizing these factors related to 
airspace use for mlitary aircraft operations at George AFB. This baseline also 
addressed the Edwards special use airspace complex because of its dose 
proximity to George AFB and the feet that its use wll continue at near capacity 
after base dosure. 

Historical data on military aircraft operations and sorties were obtained from the 
Edwards AFB and George AFB Airspace Managers. These individuais, as well as 
the air traffic contrd managers at both bases, provided Information on air traffic 
procedures, instrument approach and departure flight tracks, and other related 
data that helped characterize airspace use at and around the base. Caitrans arxJ 
airport owners/operators were also contacted to obtain information on civil airport 
use. Aviation forecasts were derived from the plans, Caitrans studies, and where 
necessary, assumptions were made based on other similar airport operational 
environments. 

Analysis Methodology 

The type and level of aircraft operations projected for the Proposed Action and 
alternatives was evaluated and compared to the way airspace was configured 
arxl used under the predosure reference. The capacity of the airport to 
accommodate the projected aircraft fleet and operations was assessed by 
calculating the airport service volume, using the criteria in the FAA Advisory 
Circular 150/5060-5. Potential effects on airspace use were assessed, based on 
the extent to which projected operations could (1) require modifications to air 
traffic contrd systems and/or feclities; (2) restrict, limit, or othenvise delay other 
air traffic in the region; (3) encroach on other airspace areas and uses; or 
(4) increase the potential for an aircraft aeddent It was recognized throughout 
the analysis process that a more in-depth study would be corducted by the FAA, 
oTKe a reuse plan is selected, to identify any impacts of the reuse activities arxi 
what actions would be required to support the projected aircraft operations. 
Therefore, this analysis was used only to consider the level of operations that 
could likely be accommodated under the existing airspace structure, and to 
identify potential impacts if operational capacity were exceeded. The FAA was 
consulted during this process for assistance in identifying potential impacts, 
be d on their air traffic control capabilities and present experience with the 
George AFB airspace environment

4.3 


AIR TRANSPORTATION 


Data addresshig private, passenger, and cargo ahr service in the region were 
acquired directly from representatives of airports serving the area and air 
transportation studies of the area. 

The effect of base closure on local airports was derived by subtracting current 
mlitary-relatedenplanements from current total enplanements. For each reuse 
aftemative, impacts oni^transportation were determined by multiplying the ratio 
of non-mlhary enplanements to non-mlitary population by the projected future 
populations of the local tdrport service area. 

4.4 RAILROADS 

Information regarding existing ral transportation was obtained from AMTRAK and 
WEDA. The information source for the proposed super speed train line was the 
Caiifomia-Nevada Super Speed Train Commission. 

The effects of reuse alt^natives on ralroad transportation were based on 
projected populations, using current passenger to population ratios. Population 
figures were used, since none of the alternatives assumes direct use of local 
ralroads. 

5.0 UTIUTIES 


Utility usage is determined by orvsite land uses arxi area population increases. 
The utlity systems addressed in this analysis include the fciclities and 
Infrastructure used for. 

• Potable water pumping, treatment, storage, and distribution 

• Wastewater collectton and treatment 

• Solid waste collection and disposal 

• Energy generation and distribution, including the provision of 
electricity and natural gas. 


For the reuse alternatives, local purveyors of potable water, wastewater 
treatment, and energy were anticipated to provide services within the area of the 
existing base, and these entities would acquire most or ail related on-base utlWes 
infrastructure, including the potable water treatment and distribution system, 
wastewater collectors, natural gas and electrical substation and distribution 
equipment It was also assumed that reuse activities would generate solid wastes 
that would be disposed of in area landfills. 

Long-term projections of demarxf arxi population were obtained from the various 
utlity purveyors within the Victor Valley (through 2010) for each of their respective 


George AFB Disposal and Reuse FEIS 


F-7 



service areas. In each case, the most recent comprehensive projections avalable 
were made prior to the base closure announcement and/or do not take into 
account a change in demand from the base. These projections, therefore, were 
adjusted to reflect the decrease in demand asaociated with closure of George 
AFB arxf Its subsequent operation under caretaker status. These adjusted 
forecasts were then considered the closure baseline for comparison with potential 
reuse alternatives. 

The potential effects of reuse alternatives were evaluated by estimating and 
comparing the additlorud direct and Indirect demarxl associated with each 
alternative to the existing and projected operating capabilities of each utility 
system. All changes to the utility purveyors’ long-term forecasts were based on 
estimated population changes in the Victor Valley and the future rates of per 
capita demand implicitiy or mplicitiy Indicated by each purveyor’s projections. 
Projections In the utlities analysis include demand for water, wastewater 
treatment, solid waste disposal, electricity and natural gas, both on the site of 
George AFB from activities planned under the Proposed Action and alternatives, 
as weii as resulting changes in domestic demand associated with direct arxi 
Indirect population changes in the Victor Valley. 

6.0 HAZARDOUS MATERIALS/HAZAROOUS WASTE 

6.1 REGION OF INFLUENCE 

The region of influence (ROi) includes the current base property and all 
geographical areas that have been affected by an on-base release of a hazardous 
material or hazardous waste. The IRP sites are located within the base boundary, 
but contamination associated with IRP sites along the northeast perimeter will 
extend the ROI beyorxf the base boundary. 

6.2 DATA SOURCES/CONTACTS 

Primary sources of data are: existing published reports such as IRP documents, 
management plan for various toxic or hazardous substances (e.g., hazardous 
waste, asbestos), RCRA permits, and survey results (e.g., radon, asbestos). 
Pertinent federal, state, and local regulations and standards were reviewed for 
appllcablity to the proposed action and alternatives. Hazardous materiais/waste 
management plans arxl inverrtories reviewed included: Asbestos Management 
Plan (ongoing) and/or Survey Results, Hazardous Waste Management Plan, 
Hazardous Waste Management Survey, Hazardous Waste Minimization 
Guidance, PCB Inventory arxi/or Survey Results, Radon Survey and/or Results, 
and Underground Storage Tank Management Plan. These documents were 
obtained through the Base Environmental Planning Branch, Civil Engineering. 
BioEnvironmental Office, Consolidation and Relocation Effort (CARE) Office, and 
Defense ReutHization and Marketing Office (DRMO).

AIR FORCE POUCY, MANAGEMENT OF ASBESTOS 
AT CLOSING BASES 


Georgo AFB Disposal and Reuse FEIS 







APPENDIX H 
AIR FORCE POUCY 

Management of Aabeatoa at Cloaing Basea 


INTRODUCTION 

Asbestos in buHdIng faclities Is managed because of potential adverse human health effects. Asbestos 
must be removed or controlled If it is in a location and condition that constitutes a health hazard or a 
potential health hazard or It is otherwise required by iw (e.g., schools). The hazard determination must be 
made by a health professional (In the case of the Air Force, a Bioenvironmentai Engineer) trained to make 
such determinations. Whle removal is a remedy, in many cases marragement alternatives (such as 
encapsulation within the bulding) are acceptable and cost effective methods of dealing with asbestos. The 
keys to dealing with asbestos are Imowing its location and corvJition and having a management plan to 
prevent asbestos containirrg materials that continue to serve their Intended purpose from becoming a 
health hazard. There is no alternative to such management, because society does not have the resources 
to remove and dispose of all asbestos In all holdings in the United States. Most asbestos is not now, nor 
wll it become a health hazard if it is property managed. 

There are no laws applicable to the five closure bases that specifically mandate the removal or 
management of asbestos in holdings other than the law addressing asbestos in schools (P.L 99-519). 
Statutory or regulatory requirements that result in removal or management of asbestos are based on 
human exposure or the potential for human exposure (i.e. National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air 
Pollutants (NESHAPS) = no visible emissions, OSHA = number of airborne fibers per cc). There are no 
statutory or other mandatory standards, criteria, or procedures for deciding what to do with asbestos. 

Thus, health professional judgement based on »(posure levels or potential exposure levels must be the 
primary determinant of what should be done with asbestos. Apart from this professional and scientific 
approach, dosing bases presents the additional problem of obtaining an economic return to the 
Government for its property. Asbestos in dosing base properties must also be analyzed to determine the 
most prudent course in terms of removal or remediation cost and the price that can be obtained as a result 

The following specific policies wil apply to bases dosed or realigned (so that there are excess Acuities to 
be sold) under the Base Closure and Realignment Act, P.L 100-526. 

1. Asbestos wai be removed if. 

(a) The protection of human health as determined by the Bioenvironmentai Engineer 
requires removal (e.g., exposed friable asbestos within a building) in accordance with 
ap^icable health laws, regulations, and standards. 

(b) A bulding is unsalable without rerrxjval, or removal prior to sale is cost-effective; that is, 
the removal cost is low enough compared to value that would be received for a "dean" 
bulding that removal Is a good Investment for the Government Prior to the decision to 
remove asbestos solely for ecorKxnic reasons, an economic analysis wll be conducted 
to determine if demolition, removal of some types of asbestos but not others, or asbestos 
removal and sale would be in the best interests of the Government 

(c) A bulding is, or is intended to be, used as a school or chid care faclity. 


George AFB Disposd and Reuse FEIS 


H-1 




2. When asbestos is present but none of the above applies, the asbestos wll be managed using 
commonly accepted standards, criteria and procedures to assure sufficient protection of human 
health and the environment, in accordance with applicable and developing health standards. 

3. A thorough survey for asbestos Onduding review of faclity records, visual inspection, and where 
appropriate as determined by the BloetTvironmental Engineer and the Base CMI Engineer, intrusive 
inspection) will be conducted by the air Force prior to sale. 

4. Appraisal instructions, advertisements for sale, aixl deeds wll conUdn accurate descriptions of the 
types, quantities, locations, and condition of asbestos in any real property to be sold or otherwise 
transferred outside the Federal Government Appraisals wll indicate what discount the market would 
apply if the bulding were to be sold with the asbestos in place. 

5. Encapsulated asbestos in a bulding structure, friable or not, is not regarded as hazardous waste by 
the Air Force, nor does encapsulation within the structure of the bulding constitute "storing" or 
"disposing of' hazardous waste. Asbestos incorporated into a bulding as part of the structure has not 
been "stored" or "disposed of." 

6. Friable asbestos, or asbestos that will probably become friable, that has been stored or disposed of 
underground or elsewhere on the property to be sold wll be property disposed of, unless the location 
is a landfill or other disposal faclity property permitted for friable asbestos disposal. 

7. The final Air Force determination regarding the disposition of asbestos wll be dependent on the plan 
for disposal and any reuse of the bulding. Decisions will take into account the proposed community 
reuse plan and the economic analysis of alternatives (see para 4). The course of action to be followed 
with respect to asbestos at each dosing installation wll be analyzed in the Disposal arxl Reuse 
Environmental Impact Statement, and wll be induded in the record of decision (ROD). Any buUdings 
or faclities where the proposed asbestos plan is controversial wll be addressed in the ROD, whether 
individually or as a dass of dosely related faclities. 

8. Since other considerations must be taken into account at bases that are continuing to operate, this 
policy does not apply to them, nor is it necessarily a precedent for asbestos removal policy on them.

STEPS IN THE PROCESSING THE FARMLAND AND CONVERSION IMPACT RATING FORM 


Sttp 1 — FtdcrtI attncics iavolvtd in proposed proieets that may convert farmland, as .defined in the Farmland Protection 
Policy Act (FPPA) to nonagiicuitural uses. wiD initially complete Parts 1 and III of the form. 

Step 2 • Originator win send copies A. B and C, together with maps indicating locationa of sitsfs), to the Soil Cmiaemtioa 
Service (SCS) local field office and retain copy D for their files. (Note: SCS has a field office in most counties in the U.S. The 
field office is usually located in the county seat. A list of field office locations are available from the SCS State Conservationist 
in each state). 

Step 3 • SCS wiO, within 43 calendar days after receipt of form, make a determination as to whether the sitefs) of the pro* 
po^ project contains prime, unique, statewide or local important farmland. 

Step 4 — In cases where farmland covered by the FPPA will be converted by the proposed project, SCS field offices wiO com¬ 
plete Parts II, IV and V of the form. 

Step S — SCS will return copy A and B of the form to the Fcderal'agency involved in the project. (Copy C will be retained for 
SCS records). 

Step 6 — The Federal agency Involved in the proposed project wifi complete Parts VI and VII of the form. 

Step 7 - The Federal agency involved in the proposed project wiB make a determination as to whether the proposed conver¬ 
sion is consistent with the FPPA and the agency’s internal polices. 


INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING THE FARMLAND CONVERSION IMPACT RATING FORM 


''art 1: In completing the **County And State** questions list all the local governments that are responsible 
'r local land use controls where site(s) are to be evaluated. 

Part ni: In completing item B (Total Acres To Be Converted Indirectly), include the following: 

1. Acres not being directly converted but that would no longer be capable of being farmed after the conver¬ 
sion, because the conversion would restrict access to them. 

• 

2. Acres planned to receive services from an infrastructure project as indicated in the project justification 
(e.g. highways, utilities) that will cause a direct conversion. 

Part VI: Do not complete Part VI if a local site assessment is used. 

Assign the maximum points for each site assessment criterion as shown in 865S.S(b) of CFR. In cases of 
corridor-type projects such as transportation, powerline and flood control, criteria #5 and #6 will not apply 
and will be weighted zero, however, criterion #8 wQl be weighted a maximum of 25 points, and criterion 
#11 a maximum of 25 points. 

Individual Federal agencies at the national level, may assign relative weights among the 13 site assessment 
criteria other than those shown in the FPPA rule. In ail cases where other weights are assigned, relative adjust¬ 
ments must be made to maintain the maximum total weight points at 160. 

In rating alternative sites. Federal agencies shall consider each of the criteria and assign points within the 
limits established in the FPPA rule. Sites most suitable for protection under these criteria will receive the 
highest total scores, and sites least suitable, the lowest scores. 

Part VH: In computing the Total She Assessment Points**, where a State or local site assessment is used 
and the total maximum number of points is other than 160, adjust the site assessment points to a base of 160. 
Example: if the Site Assessment maximum is 200 points; and alternative Site **A** is rated 180 points: 

Total points assigned Site A ■ 180 x 160 ■ 144 points for Site **A.'* 

Maximum points possible 200

NOISE 

1.0 DESCRIPTION OF PROPOSED ALTERNATIVES 

1.1 PRECLOSURE 

Typical noise sources in and around aMelds usualy Indude aircraft, surface 
tralflc, and other human activities. 

MIKary aircraft operations are the primary source of noise in the vicinity of 
GeorgeAFB. The air operations and noise contours for predosure are derived 
from the Final Environmentai Impact Statement (FE1S) for dosure of George Air 
Force Base. Callbmia (U.S. Air Force. 1990e). The contours for predosure 
operations are shown in Figure 3.4^. 

The baseline surface traffic noise levels in the vidnfty of the base were 
established in terms of DNL by moddirHi the arterial roadways on and near the 
base using current traffic and speed characteristics. The noise levels generated 
by surtace traffic were predicted using the modd published by the Federal 
Highway Administration ^HWA. 1978). The noise levels were presented as a 
function of distance from the centerline of the nearest road. In airport analyses, 
areas with DNL above ^ dBA are considered In land-use compatiblity planning 
and impact assessment; therefore, the distances to areas with DNLs greater 
than 65 dBA are of particular interest 

Annual average daly traffic (AADT) data were developed from information 
gathered in the traffic engkieering study presented in Section 3.2.4, 
Transportation, and were used to estimate predosure noise levels. The traffic 
data used In the analysis are presented in Table J-1. The traffic mix was 
assumed to be 96 percerrt cars, 3 percent medium trucks, and 1 percent heavy 
trucks. Twelve percent of the traffic was assumed to occur at night. 

1.2 CLOSURE BASEUNE 

At base dosure, it is assumed that the airfield would be used very Infrequently 
and only by general aviation afrcraft; therefore, the dosure baseline does not 
indude aircraft-reiated noise. The noise levels projected for the dosure baseline 
were calculated using the traffic projectfons at base dosure. The AADTs used 
for the analysis are presented in Table J-1. 

1.3 PROPOSED ACTION 

The Proposed Action for the reuse of George AFB would result in the 
developtnent of a commercial airport Primary components of this reuse action 
indude air carrier and commuter operations, gwierai-aviation operations, 
maintenance operations, and airline trainirtg operations. 


George AFB and Reuse FEIS J-1 






Table J-1. Surface'nrafik Opendoae • Pnycct aael N6»>Pn|jcct Gcaerated 




















Airport layout would remain unchanged. The existing northeast-southwest 
Runway 03/21 would remain 9.133 feet by 150 feet Runway 03/21 would be 
used primarily for takeoffs. The 10.000-foot north-south Runway 17/35 would 
remain unchariged and used primarly for landings. The runway usage for aN 
operations was assumed to be the same as the existing runway usage. The 
current usage Is 42.5 percent on Runway 17 (primarily used for landings). 42.5 
percent on Runway 21 (primarily used for takeoffs), 7.5 percent on Runway 03, 
and 7.5 percent on Runway 35. These percentages were used in the modeling. 
The flight track assignments assumed in our rrxxleling are included in Tables 
J-2 through J-5 for the Proposed Action. The flight tracks are shown in Figures 
4.4-7 through 4.4-9. 

The fleet mix and annual flight operations for each of the modeled years are 
contained in Table J-6. The foiiowing breakdowns were used to define daytime 
and nighttime operations for this analysis: air-carrier and commuter operations 
- 93 percent during daytime hours and 7 percent at night; general aviation and 
maintenance operations - 95 percent during daytime hours and 5 percent at 
night. Airline training was assumed to be 100 percent touch-and-go operations 
and would only take place during daytime hours. The stage lengths for air 
operations are provided in Table J-7. 

Currently used engine runup operations were assumed to occur at hush 
houses. Runups are estimated to occur once during each 24-hour period 
during the day (7 a.m.-10 p.m.) for 1998 (divided between two runup pads and 
two aircraft types), increasing to 2.5 times per 24-hour period in the year 2013. 

It is assumed that Boeing 737-300 and 757-200 type engines would be 
operated. For the runup operations, the engines would run for 20 minutes at 
idle power and 5 minutes at departure power. Although hush houses are 
currently located at these runup locations, the size of the structi vas 
assumed to be too small for commercial jet airliners, it was, ther . , assumed 
that no noise suppression facilities would be available. The aircraft were 
assumed to have a heading of 300° for pad HH1 and 170° for pad HH2. 

General aviation operations were divided into five types: 

• Single-engine - A composite single-engine propeller plane 

• Multi-engine - Beech Baron 58P assumed to be a typical multi-engine 
propeller plane 

• Turboprop - Cessna Conquest II assumed to be a t^ical turboprop 

• Turbofan - Cessna Citation I assumed to be a typical turbofon 

• Helicopter - Hughes 500D assumed to be a typical helicopter. 

It is assumed that 20 percent of the single-engine aircraft (COMSEP) activities 
would be touch-and-go operations performed only during daytime hours. 

A standard 3° glide slope and the takeoff profiles, provided by the FAA’s 
Integrated Noise Model Database 3.9, were assumed.

* No operations of this category of aircraft are proposed for this model year. 

Note: Stage lengths correspond to the distance flown in increments of 500 miles. Thus, a stage 
length of 1 corresponds to flights between 1 and 500 miles, a stage length of 2 corresponds 
to flights between 500 and 1,000 miles, etc. The maximum stage length, for modeling 
purposes, is stage 7, which corresponds to distances greater than 3,500 miles.

George AFB Dispose! end Reuse FEIS 






























The DNL contours for the proposed flight operations are shown in Figures 
4.4-10 through 4.4-13 for 1993,1998,2003, and 2013, respectively. The 
contours around the north/south Runway (17/35) are due primarfly to the airline 
training operations, in 1998,2003, and 2013 the runups for the maintenance 
operations are evident in the higher noise contours around the runup pads near 
the ends of Runway 03/21. 

Surfece traffic data used In the modeling were developed from the prefect traffic 
study presented In Section 3.2.4, Transportation, and Table J-1. 

1.4 INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT ALTERNATIVE 

This alternative for the reuse of George AFB would result in the development of 
an international airport Primary components of the action include air carrier 
and commuter operations, general aviation operations, maintenance 
operations, and air cargo operations. 

The current airport iayout would not be utilized with this alternative. The plan for 
this alternative would require the construction of two sets of parallel runways 
(03L/21R and 03R/21L and 17R/35L and 17L/35R). All of the proposed runways 
would be 14,000 feet by 150 feet. Runways 03L721R and 03R/21L would be 
used primarily for take offs, and 17R/35L arxi 17U35R would be used primarily 
for landings. The flight track assignments assumed in our modeling are 
included in Tables J-8 through J-10 for the International Airport Altemative. The 
flight tracks for this alternative are shown in Figures 4.4-14 and 4.4-15. 

The fleet mix and annual flight operations for each of the modeled years are 
contained in Table J-11. The following breakdowns were used to define daytime 
and nighttime operations for this analysis: air-carrier and commuter operations 
- 93 percent during daytime hours and 7 percent at night; general aviation and 
maintenance operations • 95 percent during daytime hours and 5 percent at 
night; and air cargo - 20 percent during daytime hours and 80 percent at night 
The stage lengths for air operations are presented in Table J-12. 

Engine runup operations were assumed to occur at hush houses. Runups are 
estimated to occur once during each 24-hour period during the day (7 a.m. to 
10 p.m.) for 1998 (divided between two runup pads and two aircraft types), 
increasing to 2.5 times per 24-hour period for 2013. It is assumed that Boeing 
737-300 and 757-2001^ engines would be operated. For the runup 
operations, the engines would run for 20 minutes at idle power and 5 minutes at 
departure power. It was assumed that no noise suppression facilities would be 
avatable. The aircraft were assumed to have a heading of 300” for pad HH1 
arxi 170” for pad HH2. 

General aviation operations were divided into the same five types as in the 
Proposed Action. 

A standard 3'' glide slope and the takeoff profiies, provided by the FAA’s 

_ Integrated Noise Model Database 3.9, were assumed.

* No operations of this category of aircraft are proposed for this model year. 

Note: Stage lengths correspond to the distance flown in increments of 500 miles. Thus, a stage 
length of 1 corresponds to flights between 1 and 500 miles, a stage length of 2 corresponds 
to flights between 500 and 1,000 miles, etc. The maximum stage length, for modeling 
purposes, is stage 7, which corresponds to distances greater than 3,500 miles.

J-21 




























The DNL contours for the proposed flight operations are shown in Figures 

4.4- 16 through 4.4-18 for 1998,2003, and 2013, respectively. The contours 
around the north/south runways (17R and 17U35R and 35L) are due priniarly to 
arrivals. The break in the contours near the north end of the runways is an 
artifact of the model, since in stops considering noise from landing aircraft at the 
point where they touch down. Runups for the maintenance operations are 
evident in the circular noise contours south of the proposed terminal. The 
contours to the southwe^ of runways 04L and 04R/21L aixi 21R are due 
primarily to departing aircraft. 

Surface traffic data used in the modeling were developed from the project traffic 
study and presented in Section 3.2.4, Transportation, and Table J-1. 

1.5 COMMERCIAL AIRPORT WITH RESIDENTIAL ALTERNATIVE 

This alternative is similar to the Proposed Action and has the same flight track 
assignments (see Tables J-2 through J-5), aviation operations (see Table J-6), 
and same stage lengths (see Table J-7) as the Proposed Action. Right tracks 
for the Commercial Airport with Residential Aftemath/e are shown in Figures 

4.4- 7 through 4.4-9. 

The airport area would encompass the airfield- and aviation-support land-use 
categories. The presence of a large residerTtial area, which encompasses 39 
percent of the based-owned property, is the main difference between this 
alternative and the Proposed Action. 

Surface traffic data used in the modeling were developed from the project traffic 
study pr:^3ented in Section 3.2.4, Transportation, and Table J-1. 

1.6 GENERAL AVIATION CENTER ALTERNATIVE 

The General Aviation Center Alternative for the reuse of George AFB would 
result in the development of a general aviation airport. Primary components of 
the action include both general aviation operations and maintenance operations. 

Airport layout would remain unchanged. The existing northeast-southwest 
Runway (03/21) would remain unchanged and would be used primarily for 
takeoffs. The north-south Runway (17/35) would remain unchanged and would 
be used primarily for landings. The flight track assignments assumed in our 
modeling are included in Tables J-13 through J-16 for the General Aviation 
Alternative. The flight tracks for this alternative are the same as those for the 
Proposed Action (see Figures 4.4-7 through 4.4-9). 

The fleet mix and annual flight operations for each of the modeled years are 
contained in Table J-17. The day-night breakdown of operations was assumed 
to be 95 percent daytime and 5 percent nighttime for all operations. All 
operations were assumed to be stage length 1.

Engine mnup operations were assumed to occur at hush houses. Runups are 
estimated to occur 0.312 times during each 24-hour period during the day (7 
a.m. to 10 p.m.) for 1993 (divided between two runup pads and two aircraft 
types), increasing to 2.5 times per 24-hour period for 2013. it is assumed that 
Boeing 737-300 and 757-200 type engines wouid be operated. For the runup 
operations, the engines would run for 20 minutes at idle power and 5 minutes at 
departure power. Although hush houses are currently located at these runup 
locations, the size of the structures was assumed to be too small for commercial 
Jet airliners, it was, therefore, assumed that no noise suppression facilities 
would be available. The aircraft were assumed to have a heading of 300” for 
pad HH1 and 170” for pad HH2. 

General aviation operations were divided into single engine propeller and twin 
engine turboprop aircraft. 

It is assumed that 20 percent of the single-engine aircraft (COMSEP) operations 
would be touch-and-go operations and these wouid be performed only during 
daytime hours. 

A standard 3” glide slope and the takeoff profiles provided by the FAA’s 
integrated Noise Model Database 3.9 were assumed. 

The DNL contours for the proposed flight operations are shown in Figures 
4.4-19 through 4.4-22 for 1993,1998,2003, and 2013, respectively. The 
contours are due primarily to aircraft maintenance runup operations. 

Surface traffic data used in the modeling were developed from the project traffic 
study presented in Section 3.2.4, Transportation, and are shown in Table J-1. 

1.7 NON-AVIATION ALTERNATIVE 

This alternative includes only non-aviation land uses. The focal point of the 
Non-Aviation Alternative is a large residential land-use zone. The existing airfield 
will remain inactive and the open areas around the airfield and in the southern 
portion of the base will be used mainly for residential and recreational purposes. 
No off-base property would be acquired for this alternative. Other components 
of this alternative include industrial, educational, medical, and commercial 
areas. The total acreage of each land-use category is shown in Table 2.3-9. 

Surface traffic data used in the modeling were developed from the project traffic 
study and are presented in Table J-1. 

1.8 NO-ACTION ALTERNATIVE 

The disposal and reuse of George AFB urxJer the No-Action Alternative would 
allow the Air Force to retain ownership of the property after closure. The 
property would be preserved and not put to further use (i.e., placed in a 
condition intended to minimize deterioration). A disposal management team 


George AFB DisposaJ smd Reuse FEIS

would be provided to ensure base security and maintain the growids and 
physical assets, including the existing utlities and structures. Ttiere would be 
no mlKary activities/missions performed on the property. 


2.0 NOISE METRICS 


Noise, used ih this cortext. refers to soutxl pressure variations audtt)le to the 
ear. Theaudiblityof a souixi depends on the amplitude and frequer>cy of the 
sound and the individual's capablity to hear the soimd. Whether the sound is 
Judged as noise deperxis largely on the listener's current activity and attitude 
toward the sourxi source, as well as the amplitude and frequency of the sound. 
The range In soimd pressures, which the human ear can comfortably detect, 
encompasses a wide range of amplitudes, typically a factor larger than a mllkm. 
To obtain convenient measurements and sensitivities at extremely low- and 
high-sound pressures, sound is measured in units of the decibel (dB). ThedBis 
a dimensionless unit related to the logarithm of the ratio of the measured level to 
a referertce level. Table 3.4-7 presents typical dB levels for various sources in 
urban envirorunents. 

Because the logarithmic nature of the decibel unit, sound levels cannot be 
added or subtracted directly. However, the foliowing shortcut method can be 
used to combine sound levels: 

Difference between Add the following 

two dB values _ to the higher level

2to3 2 

4to9 1 

lOormore 0 


The ear is not equally sensitive at ail frequencies of sound. At iow frequencies, 
characterized as a rumble or roar, the ear is not very sensitive while at higher 
frequencies, characterized as a screech or a whine, the ear is most sensitive. 
The A-weighted sound ievei derxited as dBA was developed to measure and 
report sound levels in a way which would more closely approach how sound is 
perceived. All sound levels reported herein are in terms of A-weighted sound 
levels. 

Environmental sound levels tyi;^cally vary with time. This is especially true for 
areas near airports where noise levels wfll increase substantially as the aircraft 
passes overhead and diminish to typical community levels. Both the 
Department of Defense and the FAA have specified three noise metrics to 
describe aviation noise. 

Maximum Sound Level: The highest A-weighted sound level observed during 
a single noise event no matter how long the sound may persist (Figure J-1).

Sound Exposure Lsvsl (SEL): The SEL vslue represents the A-weighted 
sound level Integrated over the entire duration of the event and referenced to a 
duration of 1 second. Her)ce. it normalizes the event to a l-second event. 
Typically most events (aircraft flyoveO last longer than 1 second and the SEL 
value wll be higher than the maximum sound level of the event Figure J-1 
indicates the relationship between the maximum sound level arxl SEL 

Day^light Average Sound Level (DNL): The DNL is the 244iour energy 
average A-weighted sound level with a 10-dB weighting added to those levels 
occurring between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. the following morning. The 10-dB 
weighting is a penalty representing the added Intrusiveness of noise during 
normal sleeping hours. DNL is used to determine land-use compatibility to 
noise from aircraft and surface traffic. 


3.0 NOISE MODELS 

3.1 SURFACE TRAFFIC 

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Highway Traffic Noise Prediction 
Noise Model was used to predict surface traffic noise. The model uses traffic 
volumes, vehicular mix, traffic speed, traffic distribution, and roadway length to 
estimate traffic noise levels. 

3.2 AIR TRAFFIC 

The FAA-approved Noise Exposure Model (NOISEMAP), Version 6.0, was used 
to predict aircraft noise levels. Since the early 1970s, the Department of 
Defense has been actively developing and refining the NOISEMAP program and 
its associated data base. The NOISEMAP computer program is a 
comprehensive set of computer routines for calcuiatlng noise contours from 
aircraft flight and ground runup operations, using aircraft unique noise data for 
both fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft. The program requires specific input data, 
consisting of runway layout, aircraft types, number of operations, flight tracks, 
and noise performance data to compute a grid of DNL values at uniform 
intervals. The grid is then processed by a contouring program which draws the 
contours at selected intervals. NOISEMAP was selected for use with the 
George AFB alternatives due to the model’s ability to analyze engine 
maintenance run-ups and helicopter operations. 

4.0 ASSESSMENT CRITERIA 

Criteria for assessing the effects erf noise include annoyance, speech 
interference, sleep disturbance, noise-induced hearing loss, possible 
non-auditory health effects, reaction by animals, and land-use compatibility. 
These criteria are often developed using statistical methods. The validity of 
generalizing statistics devised from large populations are suspect when applied 
to small sample sizes as previously performed in the affected areas near 


J-32 


George AFB Dispose and Reuse FEIS 





George AFB. Caution should be employed when irrterpreting the results of the 
impact analysis. 

4.1 ANNOYANCE DUE TO SUBSONIC AIRCRAFT NOISE 

Noise-ifKluced annoyance is an attitude; a covert merttal process with both 
acoustic and non-acoustic determinants (Fidell et al., 1988). Noise-induced 
annoyance is not a behavior (such as a complaint, which may or may not be 
motivated by annoyance), nor is it a simple and immediate sensation like 
kxidriess, free of cogr^e and emotional influerices. Annoyance differs from 
loudness (the subjective magnitude of a sound) in several ways; nK>st 
importantly, annoyartce grows in direct proportion to the duration of exposure, 
whereas loudness Is Insensitive to signal duration beyond about a quarter of 1 
second. Furthermore, whfle loudness is directiy tied to ongoing exposure, the 
annoyance of multiple noise intrusions waxes and wanes over periods of weeks 
and months. Formal definitions of noise-induced annoyance terxi to be either 
very broad or unheiii^y specific. Annoyance is perhaps most often defined as 
a generalized adverse attitude toward noise exposure. Noise annoyance is 
affected by many factors, including sleep and speech interfererx:e and task 
interruption. 

“Community response” (a term often used to describe the annoyance of groups 
of people exposed to environmental noise sources in residential settings) also 
lacks precise meaning. In its common-sense meaning as the prevalence of 
irxiividual annoyance within a geographic area, the term “community response” 
is something of a misnomer, since community-level processes are not at issue. 
Nonetheless, certain broad understandings of the term have been adopted for 
regulatory use. 

The Federal Environmental Protection Agency (1973), for ^mpie, refers to 
“community response” as “what the community does about noise or sources.” 
Such a definition of community response blurs the distinction between attitudes 
arxl behaviors. Since “what the community does” can range from nothing at all 
to complaints, protests, political debate, litigation, regulatory challenges, 
legislation, and even violent demonstration, this definition is undesirably broad. 

Among the many non-acoustic factors, that some researchers have suggested 
affect the prevalence of annoyance in communities, are various attitudes toward 
noise sources and their operators (fear, malfeasance, distrust, etc.), 
socioeconomic levels of individuals, and economic deperxlence on operation of 
noise sources. The term response bias can be applied to ail of these. The 
prevalence of annoyance in differertt communities may reflect differences in 
response bias as much as differences in exposure. Two communities, in which 
20 percent of the residents describe themselves as highly annoyed, can have 
quite different noise exposures. For example, greater numbers of people in 
cohesive, stable and weii-estabilshed communities composed of homogerreous, 
older, wealthier, and better-educated populations, may describe themselves as 


George AFB Disposal and Reuse FEIS 


J-33 






annoyed by noise exposure as do people exposed to the sanw noise 
envirorunents in the complementary sorts of communities. 

In communities in which the prevalence of annoyance is affected primarly by 
noise, reductions in exposure can be expected to lead to reductions in 
prevalence of annoyance. In communities in which the prevalence of 
annoyance is controlled by non-acoustic factors such as odor, traffic 
congestion, etc., there may be littie or no reduction in annoyance associated 
with reductions in exposure. 

The intensity of community response to noise exposure may even, in some 
cases, be essentially independent of physical exposure. In the case of 
community response to actions, such as airport siting or scheduling of 
supersonic transport aircraft, vigorous reaction has been encountered at the 
mere threat of exposure, or minor increases in exposure. 

Aithough the prevaience of annoyance in a community cannot be measured 
without soliciting opinions from residents concerning covert mental states, this 
does not imply that measurement of annoyance cannot be accomplished in an 
objective manner. The standard method for determining the prevaience of 
annoyance in noise-exposed communities is by attitudinai sun/ey. Surveys 
generally solicit self-reports of annoyance through one or more questions of the 
form ‘How bothered or annoyed have you been by the noise of (noise source) 
over the last (time period)?” Respondents are typically constrained in 
structured interviews to select one of a number of response alternatives, often 
named categories such as ‘Not At All Annoyed,” ‘Slightly Annoyed,” 
‘Moderately Annoyed,” ‘Very Annoyed,” or ‘Extremely Annoyed.” Other means 
are sometimes used to infer the prevalence of annoyance from survey data (for 
example, by interpretation of responses to activity interference questions or by 
construction of elaborate composite indices), with varying degrees of face 
validity and success. 

Predictions of the prevaience of annoyance in a community can be made by 
extrapolation from an empirical dosage-effect relationship. Based on the results 
of a number of sound surveys, Schultz (1978) developed a relationship between 
the percent of higNy annoyed and DNL 

% Highly Annoyed = 0.8553 DNL-0.0401 DNL^ -i- 0.00047 DNL^ 

Note that this relationship should not be evaluated outside the range of DNL = 
45 to 90 dB. Figure J-2 presents this equation graphically. Less than 15 to 
20 percent of the population would be predicted to be annoyed by DNL values 
less than 65 dBA while over 37 percent of the population would be predicted to 
be annoyed from DNL values greater than 75 dBA.

4.2 SPEECH INTERFERENCE AND RELATED EFFECTS DUE TO 
AIRCRAFT FLYOVER NOISE 

One of the ways that noise affects daly life la by preventing or impairing speech 
communication. In a noisy environmerrt, understanding of speech is diminished 
by masking of speech signals by intniding noises. Speakers generally raise 
their voices or move closer to listeners to compensate for masking noise in 
face-to4Bce communications, thereby, increasing the level of speech at the 
listener’s ear. As intruding noise levels rise higher and higher, speakers may 
cease talking altogether unti conversation can be resumed at comfortable 
levels of vocal effort alter rKjise intrusions end. 

If the speech source is a radio or TV, the listener may increase the volume 
during a noise intrusion, if noise intrusions occur repeatedly, the listener may 
choose to set the volume at such a high level that the program material can be 
heard even during noise intrusions. 

In addition to losing Information contained in the masked speech material, the 
listener may lose concentration because of the interruptions and. thus, become 
annoyed. If the speech message is some type of warning, the consequences 
could be serious. 

Current practice in quantification of the nrragnitude of speech interference and 
predicting speech intelligibHity range from metrics based on A-weighted sound 
pressure levels of the intruding noise alone to more complex metrics requiring 
detailed spectral information about both speech and noise intrusions. There are 
other effects of the reduced inteiiigibHity of speech caused by noise Intrusions. 
For example, if the understanding of speech is interrupted, performance may be 
reduced, annoyance may increase, and learning may be impaired. 

As the noise level of an environment increases, people automatically raise their 
voices, usually at the rate of 3 dB for each increase in background noise level. 
The effect does not take place, however, if the noise event were to rise to a high 
level very suddenly. 

4.2.1 Speech Irrterference Effects From Time-Varying Noise 

Most research on speech interference due to noise has studied the case of 
steadv-state noise. As a result, reviews and summaries of noise effects on 
speech communications concentrate on continuous or a least long duration 
noises (Miller, 1974). However, noise intrusions are not always continuous or 
long duration, but are frequently transient in nature. Transportation noise 
generates many such noise intrusions, consisting primarty of individual vehide 
passbys, such as aircraft flyovers. Noise emitted by other vehides (motorboats, 
srK)wmobiies, and off-highway vehides) is also transient in nature. 

It has been shown, at least for aircraft flyover noise, that accuracy of predictors 
of speech intelligibility are ranked in a simlar fashion for both steady-state and

time-varying or transient sounds (Wliams et al.. 1971; Kryter & WHiams. 1966). 
Of course, if one meast^es the noise of a flyover by the maximum A-tovel. 
inteiiigiblity associated with this level would be higher than for a steady noise of 
the same value, simply because the level is less than the maxflnum for nuich of 
the duration of the flyover. Onestudy (WHiams etal.. 1971) has actually shown 
that speech is more intefligibie during those portions of the flyover that are equal 
In level to a steady sound of the same spectral shape. 

4.2.2 Other Effects of Noise Which Relate to Speech Irtfelligibility 

Aside from the direct effects of reduction in speech intefligiblity, related effects 
rrtay occur that tend to compourxj the loss of speech Inteiiigiblity itself. 

Learning 

One of the environments in which speech inteiiigiblity plays a criticai role is the 
dassroom. In school classrooms exposed to aircraft flyover noise, speech 
becomes masked or the teacher stops talking altogether during an aircraft 
flyover (Crook, 1974). Pauses begin to occur at flyover levels as low as 60 dBA. 
Masking of the speech of teachers who do not pause starts at about the same 
level. 

At levels of 75 dB, some masking occurs for 15 percent of the flyovers and 
Increases to nearly 100 percent at 82 dB. Pauses occur for about 80 percent of 
the flyovers at this level. Since a marked increase in pauses and masking 
occurs at levels above 75 dB, this level is sometimes considered as one above 
which teaching is impaired due to disruption of speech communication. The 
effect that this may have on learning is undear at this time. However, one study 
(Amoult, 1986) could find no effect of noise on cognitive tasks from jd or 
helicopter noise over a range from 60 to 80 dB (A-ievel), even though 
inteil'giblity scores indicated a continuous dedine starting at the 60 dB level. In 
a Japanese study (Arxlo, 1975) researchers failed to find differences in mental 
task performance among chRdren from communities with different aircraft noise 
exposure. 

Although there seems to be no proof that noise from aircraft flyovers affects 
learning. It is reported by Mills (1975) that chHdren are not as able to understand 
speech in the presence noise as are adults. It is hypothesized that part of the 
reason is due to the increased vocabulary which the adult can draw on as 
compared to the more limited vocabulary avalable to the young student Also, 
when orre is learning a language. It is more critical that ail words be heard rather 
than only enough to attain 95 percent sentence intelligibility, which may be 
suffident for general conversations. It was previously mentioned that at 75 dB 
maximum A-levei for aircraft flyovers heard in a dassroom masking of speech 
increases rapidly. However, it was also noted that pausing whie flyovers occur 
and masking of speech for those teachers that continue to lecture during a 
flyover start at levels around 60 dB. This is comparable to measured speech

J-37 








levsis In the raw of classrooms which suggests 96 percent sentence 
InteMgblity during the maxinKim level of the flyover (Pearsons & Bennett. 1974). 

Annoyance 

Klatt (1968) studied the annoyance of speech interference by asking people to 
judge the annoyance of aircraft noise in the presence and absence of speech 
material. The speech materiai was composed of passages from newspaper 
and magazine articies. In addition to rating aircraft noise on an acceptablity 
scale (unacceptable, barely acceptable, acceptable, and of no concern), the 
subjects were required to arwwer questions about the speech material. The 
voice level was considered to represert a raiaed-voice level (assumed to be 
68 dB). in general, for the raised voice talkw, the rating of barely acceptable 
was given to flyover noise levels of 73 to 78 dB. However, if the speech level 
was reduced, the rating of the aircraft tended nnore toward imacceptabie. The 
results suggested that V the speech level were such that 95 percent or better 
sentence kiteliigiblity was makaalned, a barely acceptable rating or better 
acceptablity rating could be wqiected. This result is in general agreement with 
the finding in schools that teachers pause or have their speech masked at levels 
above 75 dB (Crook, 1974). 

Hall (1985) recently tried to relate various types of activity interference, related 
to speech and sleeping, to annoyance. The study found that there is a 50- 
percent chance that people’s speech would be interfered with at a maximum 
A-ievel of 58 dB. Thisresultappearstocontradicttheother results unti one 
considers that the speech levels in the Klatt study and in the school environment 
of the Cook study are higher than the levels typically used in the home. Also, in 
a classroom situation, the teacher raises their voice for awhie to an even higher 
ievel as the flyover noise increases in intensky. 

4.2.3 Predicting Speech inteliigibility and Related Effects Due to Aircraft 
Flyover Noise 

it appears, from previous discussions, that when aircraft flyover noises exceed 
approximately 60 dB, speech communication may be interfered with by either 
masking or pausing on the part of the talker. Increasing the ievel of the flyover 
rxiise maximum to 80 dB would reduce the inteiligiblity to zero even if a loud 
voice Is used for those who attempt to communicate. 

The above refer to indoor levels. The same noises measured outdoors would 
be 17 to 27 dB higher than those levels for simmer (windows open) and winter 
months (windows dosed), respectively. These estimates were taken from EPA 
reviews of avalable data (EPA, 1974). 

Levels of the aircraft noise produced inside dweUings and schools near the end 
of airport runways would, in many cases, exceed the levels of 60 dB inside 
(77 dB outside) homes and schools. The high speed and low altitude of the 
aircraft involved are unlikely to produce noise intrusions at these levels for 


J-38 


(Seorge AFB Disposd and Reuse FEIS 








duratk)ns(^«ater than a feMf seconds during each occurrence. During this time, 
speech inAeNIgibllty would be dose to zero. However, since the total duration is 
so short. It is anticipated that only a few sylabies would be lost Peoplemaybe 
annoyed, but the annoyance would not be due to loss in speech 
communication, but rather due to startle or sleep disturbance. 

4.3 SLEEP DISTURBANCE DUE TO NOISE 

The effects of noise on sleep have long been a concern of parties baerested in 
assuring suitable residential noise environments. Early studies noted 
background levels In people’s bedrooms In which sleep was appareraiy 
undisturbed by noise. Various levels between 25 to SO dB (A-weighted) were 
observed to be associated with an absence of sleep disturbance. The bulk of 
the research on noise effects, on which the current relationship was based, was 
conducted in the 1970s. The tests were conducted in a laboratory environment 
in which awakening was measured either by a verbal response or by a biAton 
push, or by brain wave recordirtgs (EEG) indicating stages of sleep (and 
awakening). Various types of noise were presented to the sleeping subjects 
throughout the night These noises consisted primarly of transportation noises 
including those produced by aircraft, trucks, cars, and trains. The aircraft 
noises included both flyover and sonic booms. Synthetic noises, IrKluding 
laboratory-generated sounds consisting of shaped noises and tones, were also 
studied. 

Lukas (1975) and Goldstein and Lukas (1980) both reviewed data avalabie in 
the 1970s on sleep-stage changes and waking effects of different levels of noise. 
Since no known health effects were associated with either waking or 
sleep-stage changes, either measure was potentiaHy useful as a metric of sleep 
disturbance. However, since waking, uNIke sleep-stage changes, is simple to 
quantify, it is often selected as the metric for estimating the effects of noise on 
sleep. These two reviews showed great variaNity in the percentage of people 
awakened by exposure to noise. The variablity is not merely random error, but 
reflects individual deferences in adaptation, habituation, arxf interpretation of the 
meaning of the sourxis. Such factors cannot be estimated from purely acoustic 
measures in noise exposure. 

Another major review, by Griefahn and Muzet (1978), provided simHar 
information corKeming effects of noise on waking. However, Griefahn and 
Muzet's results suggested less waking for a given level of noise than predicted 
by Lukas. 

A recent review (Pearsons et at., 1989) of literature related to sleep disturbance 
demonstrated that the relationship, based exclusively on laboratory studies, 
predicts greater sle^ disturbance than likely to occur in a real-life situation in 
which some adaptation has occurred. The prediction relationships developed in 
this review should not be considered to yield precise estimates of sleep 
disturbance because of the great variablity in the data sets from which they 
were developed. The relationships include only the duration and level 

George AFB Dispose and Reuse FEIS J-39 





components of "noise 69(po6ur«.' Increesing the precision of prediction would 
depend on (pjarttificstion of some of the non-ecoustic factors. Furttter, a recent 
review of fieid as wel as laboratory studies suggests that habituation may 
reduce the effect of noise on sleep (Pearsons et al., 1989). 

Noise must penetrate the home to disturb sleep. Interior noise levels are lower 
than exterior levels due to the attenuation of the sound energy by the structure. 
The amount of atterHiation provided by the bulding is dependent on the type of 
construction and whether the windows are open or dosed. The Environmental 
Protection Agency (EPA) recommends the use of attenuation factors of 17 dB 
(dedbeis) for summertime (windows open) and 27 dB for wintertime (windows 
dosed) conditions. 

In condusion, the scientific Uterature does not provide a consensus on deep 
disturbance. There is no recognized criteria or standard which provides 
guidarrce to assess de^ disturbance due to noise. 

4.4 NOiSE-iNOUCEO HEARING LOSS 

Hearing loss Is measured in dedbeis and refers to the permanent auditory 
threshold shift of an Individud's hearing in their ear. Auditory threshold refers to 
the minintum acoustic sigrwl that evokes a auditory sensation, i.e., the quietest 
sound a person can hear. When a threshold shift occurs a person’s hearing is 
not as sensitive as before arxi the minimum sound that a person can hear must 
be louder. Threshold shift, which naturally occurs with age, is called 
presbycusis. Exposure to high levds of sound can cause temporary and 
permanent threshold shifts usually referred to as noise^nduced hearing loss. 
Permanent hearing loss is generally associated with destruction of the hair cells 
of the Inner ear. 

The EPA (EPA, 1974) and the Committee on Hearing, Bioacoustics, and 
Biomechanics (NAS, 1981) have addressed the risk of outdoor hearing loss. 
They have concluded that hearing loss would not be expected for people living 
outside the noise contour of 75 DNL Several population studies near existing 
airports in the United States and the United Kingdom have shown that the 
possiUity for permanent hearing loss in communities near intense commercial 
take-off and landing patterns is remote. A FAA-funded study compared the 
hearing of the population near the Los Angeles international Airport to that of 
the population in a quiet area away from aircraft noise (Pamel etal., 1972). A 
simlar study was performed in the vicinity of London Heathrow Airport (Ward et 
ai., 1972). Both studies concluded that there was no significant difference 
between the hearing loss of the two populations, and no correlation between 
the hearing level with the length of time people lived in the airport neighborhood.

4.5 NON-AUOITORY HEALTH EFFECTS OF RESIDENTIAL AIRCRAFT 
NOISE 


Based on summaries of previous research In the fieid (Thompson, 1981; 
Thompson and Fidell, 1969), predictiorM of norv^uditory health effects of aircraft 
noise cannot be made. A valid predictive procedure requires evidence for 
causality between aircraft noise exposure arxJ adverse non-auditory health 
consequences, arxl imowiedge of a quantitative relationship between amounts 
of noise exposure (dose) arxl specific health effects. Because results of studies 
of aircraft noise on health are eqirivocal, there is no sound scientffic basis for 
making adequate risk assessments. 

Alleged non-audItory health corrsequences of aircraft noise exposure which 
have been studied indude birth defects, low birth weight, psychological Wness, 
cancer, stroke, hypertension, sudden cardiac death, myocardial infarction, and 
cardiac arrhythmias. Of these, hypertension is the most biologicaily plausible 
effect of noise exposure. Noise appears to cause many of the same 
biochemical and physiologicai reactions, induding temporary elevation of blood 
pressure, as do many other environmental stressors. These temporary 
increases in blood pressure are believed to lead to a gradual resetting of the 
body's blood pressure comrol system. Over a period of years, permanent 
hypertension may develop (Peterson et al., 1984). 

Studies of residential aircraft noise have produced contradictory results. Early 
investigations indicated that hypertension was from 2 to 4 times higher in areas 
near airports than in areas located away from airports (Karagodina et al., 1969). 
Although Meecham and Shaw (1988) continue to report excessive 
cardiovascular mortality among individuals 75 years or older living near the Los 
Angeles Airport, their findings cannot be replicated (Frerichs et al., 1980). In 
fact, noise exposure increased over the years whie there was a decline in all 
cause, age-adjusted death rates and inconsistent changes in age-adjusted 
cardiovascular, hypertension, and cerebrovascular disease rates. 

Studies, which have been controlled for a multiple of factors, have shown no, or 
a very weak, association between noise exposure and non-auditory health 
effects. This observation is applicable for studies of occupational and traffic 
noise, as well as for aircraft noise exposure. In contrast to the early reports of 2- 
to 6-fold increases in hypertension due to high industrial noise (Thompson et al., 
1989), the more rigorously controiied studies of Talbott et ai. (1985) and van Dijk 
et al. (1987) show no association between hypertension and prolonged 
exposure to high levels of occupational noise. 

Studies of occupational noise exposure effects have consistently shown that the 
effect of noise, if any, is so modest that It is difficult to demonstrate in 
epidemioiogic studies. The reported mean differences in blood pressure 
between high and low noise exposed groups range from 0 to 10 millimeters of 
mercury (mm Hg). 


Georye AFB Disposal and Reuse FEIS 


J-41 






In the aggregate, studies hdicate no association between street traffic noise 
and blood pressure or other cardiovascular changes. Two large prospective 
ccHaborative studies of heart disease are of particular Interest To date, 
cross-sectkxiai data from these cohorts offer contradictory results. Data from 
one cohort show a slight increase in mean systolic blood pressure (2.4 mm Hg) 
in the noisiest compared to the quietest area, whie data from the second cohort 
show the lowest mean systolic blood pressure and highest HDL cholesterol 
(lipoprotein protective of heart disease) for men in the noisiest area (Babisch & 
C^lacher, 1990). These effects dl traffic noise on blood pressure and blood 
lipids were more pronounced in men who were also exposed to high levels of 
noise at work. 

It is dear from the foregoing that the current state of technical knowledge 
cannot support inference of a causal or consistent relationship, nor a 
quantitative dose^’esponse, between residential aircraft noise exposure and 
health consequences. Thus, no technical means are available for predicting 
extra-auditory health effects of noise exposure. This condusion cannot be 
construed as evidence of no effect of residential aircraft noise exposure on 
non-auditory health. Current findings, taken in sum, indicate only that further 
rigorous studies are needed. 

4.6 DOMESTIC ANIMALS AND WILDUFE 

A recent study was pubiisher* or. the effects of aircraft noise on domestic 
animals which provided a review of the literature and a review of 209 daims 
pertinent to aircraft noise over a period spanning 32 years (Bowles et al., 1990). 
Studies since the late 1950s were motivated both by public concerns about 
what was, at that time, a relatively novel techndogy, supersonic flight, and by 
daims leveled against the U. S. Air Force for damage to farm animals by very 
low-level subsonic overflights. Since that time, over 40 studies of aircraft noise 
and sonic booms, both in the U.S. and overseas, have addressed acute effects, 
induding effects of startle responses (sheep, horses, cattle, fowl) and effects on 
reproduction and growth (sheep, cattle, fowl, swine), parental behaviors (fowl, 
mink), milk letdown (dairy cattle, dairy goats, swine), and egg production. 

The literature on the effects of noise on domestic animals is not large, and most 
of the studies have focused on the relation between dosages of continuous 
noise and effects. Chronic noises are not a good model for aircraft noise, which 
lasts only a few secoixis, but which is often very startling. The review of daims 
suggest that a major source of loss was panics induced in naive animals. 

Aircraft noise may have effects because it might trigger a startle response, a 
sequence of physidogical and behavioral events that once helped animals 
avoid predators. There are good dose-response relations describing the 
tendency to startle to various levels of noise, arxf the effect of habituation on the 
startle response. 


J-42 


George AFB Dispose! and Reuse FEIS 








The link between startles and serious effects, Le.. effects on productivity, Is less 
certain. An effect wfl be defined In this document as any change in a domestic 
animal that alters Its economic value, ktciuding changes in body weight or 
weic^ gain, numbers of young produced, weigM of young produced, fertility, 
mik production, general health, longevity, or tractabllty. At tills poirti, changes 
In productivity are usually considered an adequate indirect measure of changes 
In well-being, at least until objective legal guidelines are provided. 

Recent focus on the effects on production runs counter to a trend In the 
literature towards measuring the relation between noise and physiological 
effects, such as changes in corticosteroid levels and measures of immune 
system function. As a result. It Is difficult to determine the relation between 
dosages of noise and serious effects using only physiological measures. The 
experimental literature is inadequate to document long-term or subtle effects 
resulting from exposure to aircraft noise. 

4.7 LAND USE COMPATIBILITY GUIOEUNES 

Widespread concern about the noise Impacts of aircraft noise essentially began 
in 1950, with the major imroduction of high-power jet aircraft into military 
service. The concern about noise Impacts in the communities around airbases, 
and within the airbases themselves, led the Air Force to conduct major 
investigations into the noise properties of jets, methods of noise control for test 
operations, and the effects of noise from aircraft operations in communities 
surrounding airbases. These studies established an operational framework of 
investigation and identified the basic parameters affecting community response 
to noise. These studies aiso resulted in the first detaiied procedures for 
estimating community response to aircraft noise (Stevens & Pietrasanta, 1957). 

Although most attention was given to establishing methods of estimating 
residential community response to noise (and establishing the conditions of 
noise “acceptability” for residential use), community development involves a 
variety of land uses with varying sensitivity to noise. Thus, land planning, with 
respect to noise, requires the establishment of noise criteria for different larxl 
uses. This need was met with the initial development of aircraft noise 
compatibility guidelines for varied land uses in the mid-1960s (Bishop, 1964). 

In residential areas, noise intrusions generate feelings of annoyance on the part 
of individuals. Increasing degrees of annoyance lead to the increasing potential 
for complaints and community actions (most typically, threats of legal actions, 
drafting of noise ordinances, etc.). Annoyance is based largely upon noise 
interference with speech communication, listening to radio and TV, and sleep. 
Annoyance in the home may also be based upon dislike of “outside” intrusions 
of noise even though no specific task is interrupted. 

Residential land-use guidelines have developed from consideration of two 
related factors: 

• Accumulated case-history experience of noise complaints arxJ 
community actions near civil and military airports 


George AFB Di^osal and Reuse FEIS 


J-43 



• Relationships between environmental noise levels and degrees of 
annoyance (largely derived from social surveys in a number of 
communities). 

In the establishment of land-use guidelines for other land uses, the prime 
consideration Is task interference. For many land i»es, diis translates Into the 
degree of speech interfereiKe, after taking Into consideration the importance of 
speech communication and the presence of norvaircraft noise sources related 
directly to the specific land use considered. For some noise-sensitive land uses 
where any detectable noise signals which rise above the ambient noise are 
unwanted (such as music hails), detectabllty may be the criterion rather than 
speech interference. 

A final factor to be considered in all land uses Involving indoor activities is the 
degree of noise insulation provided by the buMing structures. The land-use 
guideline limits for unrestricted development within a specific land use assume 
noise insulation properties provided by typical commercial bulding 
construction. The detailed land-use guidelines may also define a range of 
higher noise exposure where construction or development can be undertaken, 
provided a specified amount of noise insulation is Included in the buildings. 
Special noise studies, undertaken by architectural or engineering specialists, 
may be needed to define the special noise Insulation requirements for 
construction in these guideline ranges. 

Estimates of total noise exposure resulting from aircraft operations, as 
expressed in ONL values, can be interpreted in terms of the probable effect on 
land uses. Suggested compatibility guidelines for evaluating land uses in 
aircraft noise exposure areas were originally developed by the FAA as 
presented in Section 3.4.4. Noise. Part 150 of the FAA regulations prescribe the 
procedures, standards, and methodology governing the development, 
submission, and review of airport noise exposure maps and airport noise 
compatibility pr'^^rams. it prescribes the use of yearly DNL in the evaluation of 
airport noise environments. It also identifies those land use types which are 
normally compatible with various levels of noise exposure. Compatible or 
incompatible land use is determined by comparing the predicted or measured 
DNL level at a site with the values given in Table 3.4-8. The guidelines reflect the 
statistical variability of the responses of large groups of people to noise. 
Therefore, any particular level might not accurately assess an individual’s 
perception of an actual noise environment 

While the FAA guidelines speciflcaily apply to aircraft noise, it should be noted 
that DNL Is also used to describe the noise environment due to other 
community noise sources. Including motor vehicles and railroads. The use of 
DNL is endorsed by the scientific community to assess land-use compatibility as 
It pertains to noise (ANSI, 1980). Hence, the land-use guidelines presented by 
the FAA can also be used to assess the noise Impact from community noise 
sources other than aircraft.

THREATENED, ENDANGERED, AND OTHER SPECIES OF CONCERN 
OCCURRING ON OR NEAR GEORGE AFB 


Table K-1 summarizes Information on listed and candidate species, and 
additional information for many of these species is presented herein: 

Desert Tortoise. The Mojave population of the desert tortoise {Gopherus 
agaaslzll) was listed as a federally endangered species in 1989 by emergency 
nie and as a threatened species by final rule on AprI 2,1990. Thedesert 
tortoise requires firm but not hard ground (such as the banks of washes or 
compacted sand) for construction of burrows. Mojave desert areas, with 
moderate shrub cover and relatively free of human disturbance, are probable 
habitats for the tortoise. George AFB Is located in an area considered to 
support low desert tortoise densities. A Bureau of Land Management (BLM) 
map of tortoise density shows the northern third of the base to be in a 
geographic area capable of supporting 20 to 50 tortoises per square mie 
(Western Mojave Land Tenure Adjustment Project, 1988). A recent biologicai 
survey (Science Applications international Corporation, 1990) has shown that 
the desert tortoise inhabits portions of George AFB and Its vicinity (see 
Figure 3.4-5). A small pocket (304 acres) In the northeast comer of the base 
(and «(tendlng outward past the base boundary) is expected to have high 
densities of desert tortoises (50 to 100/square mRe). Low densities were found 
in 730 acres, and the remainder of the area surveyed (1,130 acres) contained no 
tortoises. Areas that have not been surveyed and could have low densities of 
desert tortoise, as well as areas that are not expected to contain any tortoises, 
are also shown in Figure 3.4-5. 

Least BeH’s Vireo. The least Beil’s vireo (Wreo belli puslllus) Is federally and 
state-listed as endangered. It requires dense riparian woodland for foraging, 
breeding, and protection and is not expected within the project area because of 
the lack of suitable habitat. It has declined as a result of regional destruction of 
lowland riparian habitat and brood parasitism by cowbirds. 

Mohave Tui Chub. The Mohave tui chub is the only native fish known in the 
Mojave River drainage. It was once common In the river and its tributaries, but 
introduction of the arroyo chub (Glle orcutti) led to elimination of the species 
from the river by 1967 through competition and hybridization. Beginning in 
1969, Mohave tui chubs from Lake Tuendae have been transplanted In various 
locations to establish refugla populations (St. Amant. 1971). Currently, only four 
populations of the species are known to exist, none of which are wkhin the ROI. 
Planned recovery efforts for this species presently do not include 
reintroductions near George AFB. 

Swainaon’a Hawk. Swainson’s hawk (Buteo swalnsonl) is listed as threatened 
by the state of Callfomta. The species favors desert grasslands and agricuiturai

K-1 








areas for forage, and r6<^^re8 rwarby scattered trees for nesting. Occurrences 
wtthfai the ROI are possible. 

Wettem Yellow-billed Cuckoo. The western yellow-billed cuckoo (Coccyzus 
anwicanus occidentaHs) is listed as endangered by the state of Califomia. The 
main reason for its decline has been the elimination of the dense riparian groves 
that It requires as habitat. It is not likely to be fourKl In the project area because 
the Mojave River riparian 2 one does not provide suitable habitat. 

Mohave Ground Squbrel. The Mohave ground squirrel {Spermophilus 
mohavensis) Is listed by the state of Califomia as threatened and is a Category 2 
candidate for federal listing. It inhabits open communities of creosote bush 
scrub, Joshua tree woodland, and shadscale. The squirrel occurs within the 
project area and has been repotted near Oro Grande and Victorville. 

Alkali Mariposa Uly. The alkali mariposa lly {Calochortus striatus) is not 
expected to be found in the project area, due to the lack of suitable meadow or 
seep habitat within the base vicinity. 

Barstow Woolly Sunflower. The base is within the range of and provides 
suitable habitat for the Barstow woolly sunflower (Eriophyllum rrtohavense), 
though most known occurrences of the species are east rather than south of 
Barstow. The species possibly occurs on the base. 

Desert Cymopterus. The desert cymopterus {Cyrrropterus deserticola) has 
been reported a few miles east and southeast of the base. Suitable habitat 
occurs on the base, and the species is likely to be found within the ROI. 

Mojave Monkeyflower. The Mojave monkeyflower {Mimulus mohavensis) is 
known to occur within the Heiendale quadrangle, which is within 1 miie of the 
base boundary. Its presence within the ROI is very likely. 

Califomia Red-legged Frog. The Califomia red-legged frog {Rana aurora 
draytonl) is a Category 2 candidate for federal listing. It is generally found near 
water, inhabiting humid forests, woodlands, and streamsides. It has been 
reportedly found ‘in the vicinity” and may occur within the planning area (City of 
Adelanto, 1990). 

Southwestern Pond Turtle. The southwestern pond turtle {Clemmys 
marmorata pallida) is a thorougNy aquatic turtle that is a Category 2 candidate 
for federal listing. Preferred habitat is quiet waters, such as pools with aquatic 
vegetation (Stebbins, 1954). Individuals generally hibernate under detritus 
away from the Immediate stream floodplain in winter, although they can be 
active year-round where winters are mid. The eggs are laid in an earthen cavity 
excavated by the female in sunny areas near the margin of permanent waters, 
on grassy hillsides, or in open flekJs. Most eggs are laid from June to mid-July 
(URS Considtants, 1986). Pond turtles are present at many locations along the 


George AFB Disposal and Reuse FEIS 








Mofava River and nwy occur within the ROI as a resident in perennial pools or 
as a transient visitor when flow is present in the river. 

San Diego Coast Homed Ltaard. The San Diego coast horrted lizard 
{Phryrtosoma coronattan bldnvIUel) is a Category 2 candidate for federal listing. 
It has been observed 1 mie west of Oro Grande. It is likely thtf the species 
occurs throughout the project area. 

Willow Flycatcher. The wWotw flycatcher {jEmpidonax trailll) is a candidate for 
listing as endangered by the state of Callfomia. Although a fabfy common 
spring and fall transiertt. the species has been neaify extirpated as a breeder in 
southern Callfomia due to destruction of riparian habitat and cowbird pressure. 
The species was recorded near Vlctorvflto in 1321, but is unlikely to be presently 
found in the project area because of a major population decline and lack of 
high-quality habitat 

Table K>2 shows additional sensitive species that may occur In the project area 
(species not state or federally listed as threatened or endangered and not yet 
candidates for such listing).

TABLE L-4. EMISSIONS INVI-NI OR Y FOR OXIDES OF SULFUR, (Tons / Day) 




























TABLE L Sl HMISSIONS INVUNTORY for carbon monoxide, (Toni/Diy) 











THE FOLLOWING NOTES APPLY TO TAB UEP G1 THROUGH G5 


(a) Emissions are predicted by the EDMS model based on projected types of 
aircraft and estimated frequency of flight operations for each aircraft type. 

(b) Emissions are based on 1988 aircraft ground operations data from Table 3.4-S 
(see section 3.4.3 in main body of the text) times the ratio of flight operations 
for this alternative to the numt^r of 1988 flight operations. 

(c) Emissions are based on 1988 aerospace ground equipment data from Table 3.4- 
5 (see section 3.4.3 in main body of the text) times the ratio of flight operations 
for this alternative to the number of 1988 flight operations. 

(d) Emissions of PMIO, SOx, and CO are based on the ratio of source emissions to 
population as defined by the 1987 inventory for the San Bernardino County 
portion of the SEDAB (ARB 1990a). Control measures implemented since 
1987 are assumed to provide only minor emissions reductions for this source 
category. Emissions of HC and NOx are based on the ratios of source emissions 
to population as defined by the 1991 Draft Air Quality Attainment Plan 
emissions inventory forecasts (SBAPCD, 1991a). The planning inventory 
forecasts account for the effect of future control measures. 

(e) Emissions are calculated in a manner similar to that as described in footnote (d) 
above. In addition, a factor equal to the current year EMFAC7 emission rate 
divided by the year 1987 EMFAC7 emission rate (ARB, 1990b) is applied for 
PMIO, SOx, and CO to account for changes in tailpipe emission exhaust 
standards. A similar factor is not used for HC and NOx because changes in 
exhaust standards ats already accounted for in the planning emissions inventory 
forecasts.
