Document Description
Note: Review Per Lead In February 2013, the DON signed a ROD regarding the 2012 Final EIS for Land Acquisition and Airspace Establishment to Support Large-Scale Marine Air Ground Task Force Live-Fire and Maneuver Training, Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center, Twentynine Palms, California (Combat Center). The 2013 ROD documented the DON's decisions regarding establishment of a large-scale Marine Air Ground Task Force training facility at the Combat Center. Since the 2012 Final EIS and 2013 ROD, the Marine Corps conducted detailed studies and worked with USFWS, CDFW, and BLM on alternative translocation plans for the desert tortoise, as required in the 2012 Biological Opinion. In light of new information gained from these efforts, the DON elected to prepare an SEIS focusing on the evaluation of potential impacts of alternative tortoise translocation plans. This Draft SEIS analyzes the potential environmental impacts of the No-Action alternative and two action alternatives addressing different methodologies and locations for implementing a Desert Tortoise Translocation Program in support of large-scale Marine Air Ground Task Force live-fire and maneuver training. Potential impacts have been analyzed for biological resources, land use (including recreation), air quality, and cultural resources.
