ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT FOR BICENTENNIAL INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT NORTHEAST, AMERICA. MODEL ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT NUMBER 1

This model describes a hypothetical air carrier airport at which the development of a new 10,000-foot parallel runway is proposed. The document describes the project, the purpose, and the setting. It includes background information including the project history and community involvement. Fifteen impact categories are analyzed together with a description of measures to be taken to minimize adverse effects. Emphasis in this case is given to noise impacts, direct socioeconomic effects (especially relocation of 130 families) and replacement of a public playground. The latter involves application of the Department of Transportation Act Section 4(f). Alternatives to the proposed runway are included in the environmental impact statement. Letters received from Federal agency review are included in the document as are responses to comments. Also included in the document is a sample decision paper and Federal Finding. (Author)
