The FEIS analyzes three disposal alternatives with respect to the disposal and subsequent reuse of the 426-acre (approximately 370 acres unsubmerged and 56 acres submerged) comprising the Oakland Army BASE: (1) The no action alternative, under which the property would be maintained in a caretaker status after closure; (2) the unencumbered disposal alternative, under which the Army would transfer the property without use restrictions, such as environmental covenants, land use controls, and easements; and (3) the encumbered disposal alternative, under which the Army would transfer the property with various use restrictions which run with the land and limit future use.

In the Record of Decision, the Army concludes that the FEIS adequately addresses the impacts of property disposal and documents its decision to transfer the property as encumbered. Possible encumbrances include: covenants and restrictions for asbestos-containing material, lead-BASEd paint, wildlife habitat protection, access easements and rights-of-way.
