Dobbins Air Reserve Base
KEMRON Environmental Services, Inc. (KEMRON) was contracted to perform a NEPA Environmental Assessment (EA) at Dobbins ARB in Marietta, GA under a contract to the Georgia Department of Defense. The EA was prepared in accordance with the applicable guidelines and recommendations set forth by the DOD and satisfied the criteria of the federal, state, and Army regulations and the intent of NEPA. The intent was to establish existing baseline environmental conditions at the site and how ARB training activities impact those conditions. Alternatives to the current activities were also identified.
Investigations of the properties included the following: past and present land uses, site improvements, activities conducted on the premises, existing natural conditions, impacts of the activities on the environment, alternatives to the present activities, measures of impact mitigation, and the presence or potential for site contamination. KEMRON identified conditions indicative of special resource value for the property such as natural, historic, cultural, recreational or scientific; the presence of potential jurisdictional wetlands; the presence of protected plant and animal species; and areas of potential archaeological, cultural or historical significance. The premise was also investigated for the potential for site contamination from the presence of hazardous materials.
