In the ROD, The Army concludes that the FEIS adequately addresses the impacts of property disposal and documents its decision to transfer the remaining approximately 4 acres of SAEP property as encumbered. The ROD concludes that approximately 4 acres remaining of the 75-acre SAEP property will be conveyed subject to restrictions, identified in the FEIS, that relate to the following: easements for avigation, other easements and rights-of-way, floodplains, a groundwater use prohibition, floodplains obligations, wetlands, land use restrictions, remedial activities and the requirement for a right of reentry for environmental cleanup. The Army's intent under the ROD is to transfer approximately 4 acres remaining of the SAEP property to the City of Bridgeport for airport purposes. If the City of Bridgeport is unable to acquire the necessary permits and approvals for their proposed activity on the approximately 4-acres within a reasonable period of time, The Army will convey the property to the SAEP LRA. The Army will impose deed restrictions or other requirements to ensure safety and protection of human health and the environment.
The Army has taken all practicable measures to avoid or minimize environmental harm associated with its preferred alternative of encumbered property disposal. Mitigation measures for reuse activities are identified in the FEIS.Start Signature
