Draft Environmental Assessment for Construction, Operation, and Maintenance of a Dense Urban Terrain Complex, Fort Irwin, California

In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the Department of the Army, Installation Management Command at Fort Irwin has prepared a Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Construction, Operation and Maintenance of a Dense Urban Terrain Complex at Fort Irwin, California. Fort Irwin currently lacks a Dense Urban Terrain (DUT) environment that meets current U.S. Army (Army) standards and requirements. The Army proposes to construct and operate a new DUT complex to meet the critical collective unit training need for active, reserve component, and National Guard units that train at Fort Irwin. The EA assesses impacts of both the proposed action as well as the no action alternative. The Environmental Assessment will be available for public review and comment beginning 12 November 2018. Electronic transmission of comments must be received by 12 December 2018 and comments sent by U.S. Mail must be postmarked by 10 December 2018. Copies of the EA are available at;
