Draft Environmental Assessment for Establishing Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) Vehicle Storage and Repair Facilities at Joint Base Charleston/Army Strategic Logistics Activity Charleston, South Carolina.
To accomplish this mission, the Army proposes to construct and operate enclosed MRAP vehicle storage space, a vehicle maintenance facility, an armory, and supporting facilities. This action would result in the construction and operation of enclosed MRAP vehicle storage spaces, a vehicle maintenance facility, an armory, and supporting facilities. The enclosed vehicle storage space would consist of 12 dehumidified metal buildings of approximately 133,000 square feet each, a vehicle maintenance facility consisting of a 53,544 SF, 38-bay, metal building, a concrete-hardened 9000 square foot armory, and supporting facilities such as utilities and connections, lighting, parking, walkways, curb and gutter, and storm drainage. All constructed facilities would be of permanent construction.
The proposed facilities would be constructed on a 95 acres wooded tract of land north and adjacent to the existing ASLAC facilities. The project area contains 0.76 acres of jurisdictional wetlands that may be impacted, however, the project area is located out of the floodplain and will not impact any federally listed species, critical habitat, or any known cultural or historic resources.
