The Final PEIS assesses the No Action Alternative, four action alternatives, and a fifth alternative that would implement all of the separate action alternatives. The Proposed Action would meet the Senior Commander’s Soldier training requirements, support the Range Complex Master Plan, and streamline the NEPA analysis process for routine range and training land actions occurring at Fort Campbell. DATES: No decision will be made until at least 30 days after publication of the Notice of Availability in the Federal Register by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, at which time the Army will document its selection of alternative(s) in a Record of Decision.
