Notice of intent. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: The Army intends to prepare an EIS to assess the potential environmental impacts associated with the resumption of year-round live-fire weapons training at Fort Richardson, including use of direct and indirect fire weapons systems. The EIS will analyze the proposed action’s impacts upon the natural and manmade environment. DATES: Written comments identifying potential impacts to be analyzed in the EIS must be received not later than September 19, 2007. ADDRESSES: Written comments should be forwarded to Ms. Carrie McEnteer, Directorate of Public Works, Attention: IMPA–FWA–PWE (C. McEnteer), 1060 Gaffney Road #4500, Fort Wainwright, AK 99703–4500; fax: (907) 353–9867; e-mail: carrie.mcenteer@us.army.mil. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Please contact Mr. Robert Hall, Public Affairs Office, 724 Postal Service Loop Road #6000, Building 600, Room B349, Fort Richardson, AK 99505–6000; telephone: (907) 384–2546, e-mail: robert.hall33@us.army.mil. Fort Richardson has undergone extensive transformation in recent years, including stationing of the 4th Brigade Combat Team (Airborne); 25th Infantry Division (Light); and temporary stationing of the 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division. The proposed action would allow units to train year round at Fort Richardson and receive necessary weapons proficiency training. Weapons proficiency is a critical component of combat, and training must include livefire exercises using both direct and indirect fire weapons. Indirect fire refers to the use of weapons such as artillery and mortars to fire at targets from beyond line-of-sight distances or from positions where line-of-sight is not possible. Direct fire, in contrast, is the use of small arms, machine guns, rockets, or missiles to fire at targets that can be observed or are within the lineof-sight. The ERF Impact Area is the only impact area on Fort Richardson which can be used for live-fire artillery and SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\20AUN1.SGM 20AUN1
