24. BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF PROJECT AND RELEVANCE TO THIS CONTRACT (Include scope, size, and cost)

The Pennsylvania Army National Guard (PAARNG) proposed to expand and upgrade the Honesdale RC (aka Lemnitzer Armory), originally constructed in 1977. This project was needed to provide the authorized space to accommodate the PAARNG's Company A, 1-109th Infantry's and Attachment, Company E 228th (MNVR FSC) Support Battalion's training mission; the current facility was 2/3 the size authorized. Due to current space constraints, the unit had a shortage of supply, maintenance, administration, training device, classroom, and kitchen space.

The Site consists of approximately 10.0 acres of land in a mixed agricultural/rural residential and suburban residential setting within Honesdale Borough and Texas Township, Wayne County, in northeastern PA. The Site, owned by the PAARNG since 1964, currently supports a RC in its west-central portion, with associated POV parking and Military Equipment Parking (MEP) encompassing most of the remainder of the Site; limited undeveloped areas are present in the Site's southern extreme. The RC's rear parking access area (0.25 acre) and the detached southern MEP area (compound; 0.8 acre) are each contained within a secure, six-foot high cyclone fence, encompassing approximately 1.1 acres. A Mobile Conduct of Fire Trainer (MCOFT) is located in the fenced area immediately to the rear (south) of the RC. The remainder of the Site is not fenced. Prior to initiation of construction, the PAARNG contracted PlanIt 2 to conduct the required EBS/ECOP document for the Site. PlanIt2 developed the document in conformance with the limitations of the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) Designation D6008-96 (2005), Standard Practice for Conducting Environmental Baseline Surveys; the ASTM Designation E1527-05, Standard Practice for Environmental Site Assessments: Phase I Environmental Site Assessment Process; the Army National Guard (ARNG) Environmental Condition of Property (ECOP) Standard Operating Procedure (SOP; 14 March 2007); Army Regulation (AR) 200-1, Environmental Protection and Enhancement, Chapters 15-5 and 15-6 (28 August 2007); the USEPA's "All Appropriate Inquiries" Final Rule; and generally recognized industry practices. PlanIt2 inspected the Site and performed a reconnaissance of the Site and surrounding properties. The onsite inspection focused on areas potentially proposed for disturbance under the Proposed Action, although PlanIt2 reconnoitered and examined the entire Site and surrounding properties. Based on the results of the site visit, research, and interviews conducted in support of the EBS, PlanIt2 developed core findings concerning Recognized Environmental Conditions (RECs) at the Site pursuant to AR 200-1, Chapter 15-6 and the ARNG ECOP SOP (2007). PlanIt2 assigned each portion of the Site an ECOP Category designation, with appropriate supporting rationale. In addition, and as a value-added component of our work, PlanIt2 identified other potential environmental issues and considerations concerning the Proposed Action and the Site. These additional recommendations provide a depth of value for our Clients, and provide necessary input into the requisite NEPA process. These recommendations identify other potential issues that should be addressed by the Client, resultant from the findings of our work. While not required under the referenced regulations and guidance, PlanIt2 includes these components in each ECOP-related document we complete, after receiving approval from our Client to do so. In this manner, the subsequent NEPA process (CX or EA) is expedited, and other concerns and issues can be addressed in a timely fashion by our Client, including any necessary environmental compliance requirements.
