Draft Final

Environmental Assessment for
Area Maintenance Support Activity

Philip H. Sheridan U.S. Army Reserve Center (IL131/17887)
Fort Sheridan, Illinois

This Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared to analyze the environmental effects associated with proposed construction of an Area Maintenance Support Activity (AMSA) facility and wash building for Philip H. Sheridan United States Army Reserve Center (Sheridan USARC).

The proposed changes are needed because the current facilities do not provide the quality and functionality required to meet the 88th Readiness Division (88th RD) mission. The USAR has prepared this EA in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), as implemented by the Council on Environmental Quality regulations (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] 1500-1508), and the U.S. Army regulation (32 CFR Part 651) for implementing NEPA. The Proposed Action would include the construction of a new AMSA shop, wash building, support facilities, and the demolition of the existing AMSA shop (Building 137). This would bring Sheridan USARC up to standards that meet quality and functionality ratings and that support the 88th RD’s mission. Under the No Action Alternative, the existing AMSA would continue to operate. The AMSA shop is in poor condition with numerous safety and maintenance deficiencies on record.

This Draft EA evaluates the potential environmental impacts associated with the Proposed Action and the No Action Alternative on a full range of resource areas, including energy and infrastructure, air quality, human health and safety, biological resources, water resources, cultural resources, hazardous and toxic materials and wastes, and geology and soils. Based on findings of this EA, neither the Proposed Action nor the No Action Alternative would have any significant adverse, direct or indirect effects on the quality of any aspect of the human or natural environment. A summary of impacts by resource area for the alternatives considered is provided in Table ES-1. Therefore, preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement is not required and issuance of a Finding of No Significant Impact is warranted.
