OF THE FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT
IMPACT (FONSI) AND ENVIRONMENTAL
ASSESSMENT (EA) FOR MCON P-713
CONSTRUCT COMPRESSED AIR PLANT,
NAVAL STATION PEARL HARBOR, HAWAII
Pursuant to the Council on Environmental Quality regulations (40 Code of Federal Regulations Parts 15001508) implementing the National Environmental Policy Act, and Chief of Naval Operations Instruction 5090.1B, CH-4, the Department of the Navy gives notice that an EA and FONSI have been prepared and an Environmental Impact Statement is not required for the MCON P-713 Construct Compressed Air Plant, Naval Station Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Hawaii proposes to construct a new low pressure compressed air plant of 4,346 square feet (404 square meters) at the present location of Building 640 at Naval Station Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The project would include demolition of Building 640 which would be replaced with a new facility consisting of a pre-engineered metal building incorporating architectural features and color consistent with the adjacent Building 641. Alternatives evaluated included (1) demolishing Building 640 and extending Building 641, the existing high pressure compressed air plant, over the present location of Building 640 to provide a new low pressure compressed air plant, and (2) no action.
The Proposed Action would have an adverse effect on Building 640 due to the demolition of a structure deemed eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. The Navy has complied with Sections 106 and 110(f) of the National Historic Preservation Act by consulting with the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, the State Historic Preservation Officer, the National Park Service, the Historic Hawaii Foundation, and the National Trust for Historic Preservation to develop measures that minimize and mitigate the adverse effects. The Navy has executed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the State Historic Preservation Officer that stipulates ways to minimize and mitigate the adverse effect on historic properties. The Proposed Action would not result in significant impacts on other resource areas. NAVFAC Hawaii has determined that the Proposed Action would not have reasonably foreseeable direct or indirect effects on coastal use or resources within the States coastal zone.
Based on information gathered during preparation of the EA, the Navy finds that the Proposed Action will not significantly impact human health or the environment.
The EA and FONSI addressing this action are on file and interested parties may obtain a copy from: Naval Facilities Engineering Command Pacific, 258 Makalapa Drive, Suite 100, Pearl Harbor, Hawaii 96860-3134 (Attention: Ms. Christine Fong), telephone (808) 472-1396. A limited number of copies are available to fill single copy requests.
