PUBLIC NOTICE
NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY AND REQUEST FOR COMMENTS

The United States Coast Guard announces the public availability of the Expanded Training Program USCG Training Center Petaluma Environmental Assessment (EA). Training Center (TRACEN) Petaluma is located on 804 acres, approximately seven miles west of Petaluma, California.

Coast Guard readiness is dependent upon properly equipping and training its personnel. TRACEN Petaluma expects to expand its training program to double its current size and will require the creation of additional classroom space and student dormitories. The EA describes four alternatives to meet future needs to train and lodge almost 500 additional students. The instructional staff would grow from 200 at present to 285 by the end of 2004.

The EA evaluates the environmental effects that may result from implementation of the alternatives. Areas addressed include land use, water resources, wastewater treatment, biological resources, visual resources, air quality, noise, transportation, and socioeconomics. Other environmental resources are not expected to be affected.
