FINDING OF NO PRACTICABLE ALTERNATIVE

JBSA-Chapman Annex Military Working Dog Compound Upgrade Lighting Project

The JBSA-Chapman Annex Military Working Dog compound lies within the 100-year floodplain as designated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Executive Order 11988, Floodplain Management, seeks to avoid construction of facilities or structures within floodplains “to reduce the risk of flood loss, to minimize the impact of floods on human safety to reduce the risk of flood loss, to minimize the impact of floods on human safety, health and welfare and to restore and preserve the natural and beneficial values served by floodplains”. The proposed action is to install 2 additional light posts to the already existing 13 posts in the compound in order to address the current safety issue for night training. Due to the nature of the project, it must be located within the floodplain, as the compound itself is within the 100-year floodplain.

Any alternatives considered must be in the floodplain, as the Military Working Dog compound is within the floodplain. The Air Force conducted an environmental analysis in accordance with 32 CFR Part 989, Air Force Environmental Impact Analysis Process. The analysis included an assessment of the impacts of the proposed action on flood risk to lives and property, and on the natural and beneficial values of floodplains, as described in the Water Resources Council’s implementation guidance to Executive Order 11988. After conducting this analysis, we determined the proposed action will result in no adverse effects to the natural and beneficial functions of the floodplain. The proposed action is a practicable alternative to address the safety issue at the site.

In accordance with the requirements of EO 11988, the Air Force provided Early Public Notice for the proposed action to occur in a 100-year floodplain. The Early Public Notice was posted on 9/19/2022 on the Joint Base San Antonio public website, and was posted for 30 days. No public comments were received. In accordance with EO 11988, The Air Force coordinated the proposed action with the local floodplain authority. The proposed action was submitted to the Bexar County Floodplain Administrator on 9/30/2022 to determine whether the action conforms to applicable state and local floodplain standards. JBSA has not received any project-specific requirements from the Bexar County Floodplain Administrator. (Posted Nov. 28, 2022)
