NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY OF THE FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT (FONSI) AND
ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT (EA)
FOR THE CONSOLIDATION OF BUILDINGS
146, 147, AND 148, PEARL HARBOR
NAVAL COMPLEX (PHNC), OAHU, HAWAII
Pursuant to the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations (40 Code of Federal Regulations Parts 1500-1508) implementing the National Environmental Policy Act, and Chief of Naval Operations Instruction 5090.1B, the Department of the Navy (Navy) gives notice that an EA has been prepared and an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is not required for the Consolidation of Buildings 146, 147, and 148, PHNC, Oahu, Hawaii.
Commander Navy Region Hawaii (CNRH) proposes to consolidate the functions of Buildings 146, 147, and 148 at Merry Point, PHNC. Building 148 will be renovated and used for consolidation, whereas Buildings 146 and 147 will be vacated and demolished. Areas previously occupied by Buildings 146 and 147 will be restored and paved to match the surrounding areas.
The Proposed Action would have an adverse effect to contributing properties and the historic character of the United States Naval Base, Pearl Harbor National Historic Landmark due to demolition of Buildings 146 and 147. The Proposed Action would minimize impacts by retaining and renovating Building 148, which is the most prominent of the buildings. CNRH has complied with Sections 106 and 110(f) of the National Historic Preservation Act by affording the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, the State Historic Preservation Officer, and other parties the opportunity to comment on the Proposed Action. It was agreed that the demolition of Buildings 146 and 147 are covered by a Programmatic Memorandum of Agreement that allows demolition of temporary World War II structures that qualify for the National Register of Historic Places.
The Proposed Action would not result in significant impacts on the following resources: Land Use Compatibility, Physical Conditions, Water Quality and Marine Environment, Biological Resources, Infrastructure, Health and Safety, and Socio-Economic Factors. The Proposed Action would not create environmental health and safety risks that may disproportionately affect children or minority or disadvantaged populations, nor would it have reasonably foreseeable direct or indirect effects on any coastal use or resource of the States coastal zone.
The EA and FONSI prepared by the Navy addressing this Proposed Action are on file and interested parties may request a copy from: Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Hawaii, 400 Marshall Road, Building X-11, Pearl Harbor, Hawaii 96860-3139 (Attention: Mr. Andy Huang, EV2), telephone (808) 471-1171 x207, E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. A limited number of copies are available to fill single copy requests.
