Hammonton Airport’s Airport Layout Plan (ALP) identified the needs of the Airport and established a capital improvement program. The Plan delineates the program into short-term, mid-term, and long-term time periods. All projects listed within the short-term program (0-5 years), as depicted on the official ALP, will be reviewed within the environmental assessment.
DY Consultants prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) for Hammonton Airport in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and FAA guidelines (FAA Order 5050.4A and 1050.1E, Chg 1).
The examination of potential environmental effects involved a number of steps, which began with the preparation of an Environmental Assessment (EA), following the guidelines specified in FAA Order 5050.4A, Airport Environmental Handbook. Twenty environmental impact categories were analyzed, including wetlands, flood plains, endangered and threatened species, and compatible land use. The EA provided the foundation for the decision to proceed with either a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) or an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). Its purpose was to assist decision makers in their planning and decision-making efforts. It identified the proposed development action, any problems associated with that action, and the reasonable alternatives. It also identifies any permitting needs and other special requirements.
