The FONSI/ROD is for the approval of actions for the construction of an airport, including a runway, runway safety area, an apron, airport access road, a relocated landfill and sewage lagoon, an access road to the relocated landfill and sewage lagoon, and closure of the existing landfill and sewage lagoon. The FONSI/ROD provides the final agency determinations and approvals for Federal actions by the FAA related to the selection of the alternative to meet the purpose and need for the action. The FONSI/ROD also includes required mitigation measures and conditions of approval. The FONSI/ROD indicates that the selected actions are consistent with existing environmental policies and objectives set forth in the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended, as well as other Federal and State statutes, and that the actions will not significantly affect the quality of the environment. The FAA's decision is based upon information contained in the Final EA, issued in January 2009, and on all other applicable documents available to the agency and considered by it, which constitutes the administrative record.
