Powertrain PN64026 Environmental Assessment (EA)

Corpus Christi Army Depot (CCAD), located at the Naval Air Station in Corpus Christi, Texas (NASCC), proposes to continue the construction of a replacement facility for the existing CCAD Building 8. This Proposed Action is a continuation of a project previously analyzed in a 2009 Environmental Assessment (EA) entitled, “Corpus Christi Army Depot Building 8 Replacement Facility.”

This EA documents and discloses the environmental impacts that would potentially result from the Proposed Action. The issues presented have been researched, given the best available data on CCAD and NASCC. For the purpose of this EA, the No Action Alternative is considered the baseline for comparison to the Proposed Action Alternative. Based on the potential for significant environmental impacts from the Proposed Action, certain issues were designated for detailed study while other issues were eliminated. The resource areas addressed in detail within this document are Physical Environment (Geology, Soils, and Water Resources), Biological Environment, Historical and Cultural Resources, Socioeconomics, Land Use, Noise, Air Quality, Utilities and Infrastructure, Hazardous Materials, Air Quality, and Visual and Scenic Resources.
