EA - Environmental Assessment

Federal lands - Edwards AFB (military installation)

Document Description
The draft EA evaluates the potential environmental impacts associated with the long-term integrated management of mission-generated solid waste at Edwards AFB, CA. Currently, all non-housing nonhazardous solid waste from daily operations at Edwards AFB are disposed of at the Main Base Active Landfill. Several alternatives addressing long-term management of solid waste are evaluated, including closure of the MBAL, reducing operating days at the MBAL, and increasing the permitted capacity of the MBAL. This EA would not authorize any proposed activity that would occur in an environmentally constrained area without additional NEPA analysis and compliance with any other applicable regulations.
