Army determines environmental impact statement not required for base expansion

Reader comments (1)
UPDATE 1/9/08: The period for public comment has been extended to January 25, 2008.  Mailed items must be postmarked on or before that date to be considered.


The US Army has released a draft environmental assessment related to the expansion of the National Ground Intelligence Center (NGIC) and the construction of the new Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) facility which will be the home of jobs relocated from Bolling AFB as part of the Federal Base Relocation and Closure (BRAC) program.  The assessment, released December 10, 2007 by Fort Belvoir, determined that the expansion of the Rivanna Station Military Base on Route 29N would not have “a significant adverse affect on the environment.”  As a result, the Army has concluded that a more in-depth Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is not required. 

The public and Albemarle County has until January 25, 2008 to submit written comments on this determination that an EIS is not required.   According to the Army's letter, those comments may be sent in writing to:

US Army Garrison Fort Belvoir
9430 Jackson Loop, Suite 100
Fort Belvoir, VA 22060-5116
or e-mail: environmental-fb-dpw@conus.army.mil
