Environmental Assessments for Airport Improvement Projects

Client: FAA
Location: Various Western States

SAGE has prepared Environmental Assessments (EAs) for the Federal Aviation Administration for airport traffic control tower construction and instrument landing equipment installations at airports in Utah, Idaho, Colorado, California, Nevada, Alaska and Arizona. The EAs required the assessment of the projects with respect to 18 impact categories which evaluate various construction, land use, natural resource, ecological, environmental quality, historical/cultural, aesthetic, and socioeconomic impacts. As part of the EA process, SAGE prepared correspondence for Federal, State, and local government consultations; arranged public access and publication notification for the EAs; responded to public comments; and prepared Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) statements. Several sites involved additional studies relating to wetlands, potential contaminants, and the assessment of visual impacts.
