Fort Campbell covers 105,068 acres in Kentucky and Tennessee. Fort Campbell is home to the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), the 5th Special Forces Group, 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, and other tenant units. The mission of Fort Campbell is primarily to support and train the units stationed on the installation in preparation for a variety of assigned combat and combat related missions. The purpose of the Proposed Action is to provide the forces that train on Fort Campbell with state-of-the-art training facilities and ranges. The action would also implement site-specific range modernization needs contained within the Range Complex Master Plan. The Final PEIS will also support future decisions regarding routine range and training land actions occurring at Fort Campbell that are not covered under an existing NEPA analysis. The Final PEIS analyzes the potential environmental impacts of the No Action Alternative—continuing existing training missions and environmental programs, and maintaining existing environmental conditions through current operational controls. The PEIS analyzes four alternatives and one alternative implementing all of these alternatives: • Alternative 1—Construct and Operate Site-Specific Projects in Support of Soldier Training. • Alternative 2—Create Adaptable Use Zones (AUZs) to Facilitate Future Modernization and Range Facility Construction. • Alternative 3—Implement Routine Range and Training Land Actions and Environmental Stewardship Practices. • Alternative 4—Evaluate the Reactivation of Installation Controlled Airspace. • Alternative 5—Implement Action Alternatives 1–4. The preferred alternative is Alternative 5. The U.S. Army plans to issue a Record of Decision no earlier than 30 days after the date of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Notice of Availability. The Final PEIS is available at http:// www.campbell.army.mil/Pages/ TMMSA.aspx. Brenda S. Bowen, Army Federal Register Liaison Officer.
