Environmental Assessment for WJR Transmitter Site, Riverview, Wayne County, Michigan (December 2009)
FEMA has identified several radio transmission sites throughout the United States that provide significantly powerful signals which can be used for communication purposes in the event of a national catastrophe. FEMA has contracted with the Primary Entry Point Administrative Council, Inc. (PEPAC), to upgrade, maintain and manage the emergency power systems located at these selected transmission sites. PEPAC is proposing to removeand close an existing diesel fuel underground storage tank (UST) and ancillary fuel system and replace with the installation of a new 12,000-gallon diesel UST system at the WJR Transmitter Facility. In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations implementing NEPA (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] Parts1500-1508), and FEMA regulations for NEPA compliance (44 CFR Part 10), and Environmental Assessment has been prepared to evaluate the potential environmental impacts of the proposed project.
