VA Northern California Health Care System: Alameda Draft Environmental Assessment, February 22, 2013


The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Northern California Health Care System and National Cemetery Administration are seeking to establish a single location at the former Naval Air Station Alameda (federal-to-federal land transfer from the Department of the Navy to the VA) to serve, care for, honor, and memorialize Northern California Area Veterans in a manner that addresses the area’s current and future capacity needs and provides a greater range of Veteran services.

In preparation for this proposed undertaking, the VA and Navy have drafted a National Environmental Policy Act/Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) document that describes purpose, assess need for, and evaluates the potential direct, indirect and cumulative impacts on the human and natural environment; as well as consider possible effects on historic properties.
