Update to Notice of Intent to the Joint Environmental Impact Statement and Environmental Impact Report for Development of the Oro Verde Solar Project
Document Number: 2016-14125
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-06-15
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Air Force
The United States Air Force (USAF) is issuing this notice to update the public on changes to the joint Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for development of the Oro Verde Solar Project (OVSP). The Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare a joint project-level EIS/EIR for the Oro Verde Solar Project was originally published in the Federal Register on May 29, 2013 (FR Doc. 2013-12751). Public and agency meetings were held to discuss the project on June 11, 2013, at Club Muroc on Edwards AFB; June 12, 2013, at the Mojave Veterans Hall at 15580 O Street in Mojave, California; and June 13, 2013, at the Hummel Community Hall at 2500 20th Street West in Rosamond, California. Since the publication of the NOI, the Air Force is no longer partnering with the originally selected project developer for the Oro Verde Solar Project. However, the Air Force is continuing with completion of an EIS/EIR at a broader programmatic level to support future project implementation. The Air Force has retitled this project the Edwards AFB Solar EUL Project Programmatic EIS/EIR. The programmatic analysis will provide future potential developers and the public with an early understanding of environmental impacts and benefits of the proposed action, and will assist in framing the scope of any subsequent site-specific Air Force actions.
