However, because DLA is a tenant on Red River Army Depot, a U.S. Army-supported installation, this EA is subject to compliance with U.S. Army implementing regulations for NEPA. DLA has determined that the Proposed Action would not have a significant impact on the human environment within the context of NEPA.
