work of the proposed project.  The three possible levels of NEPA
documentation are a Record of Categorical Exclusion (RCE), an Environmental
Assessment (EA) or an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).
5.7.2  Environmental Considerations:  Explain the measures proposed for the
preservation of trees, plants and wildlife, air, and water quality,
pollution abatement, landscaping and the blending of construction with the
surroundings.  Perform a tree survey prior to design efforts and determine
if existing trees and shrubs can be avoided.  Thoroughly investigate and
adhere to local environmental laws and permits.  Pay particular attention
to matters that are or could become controversial or is environmentally
significant.  A certified arborist or someone with comparable
qualifications should be utilized to conduct a tree survey to identify
exceptional trees.
5.7.3  Environmental Policies:  Ensure compliance with the National
Environmental Policy Act, PL 91-190 and the Clean Air and Water Pollution
Control Act, Executive Order 11507, which requires that Federal facilities
meet the more stringent of applicable Federal, State and local air and
water quality standards.  Installation Restoration (IR) Program and the Underground
Storage Tank (UST) Program:  Review the project site if the site has been
addressed as part of the IR Program or the UST Program, and if either
program has identified potential Hazardous Substances (HS) contamination at
the site, review the schedule for site study and cleanup to ensure this
schedule fits with the planned MCON action.  Hazardous Substance (HS):  In compliance with the Preliminary
Hazard Analysis (PHA) and the Occupational Health Act, PL 91-596 and
reference criteria, if contamination by HS such as PCB, tetrachloroethylene
(perchloroethylene), asbestos, lead paint, silica sand, etc. is discovered
during project design/construction, specific legal/DOD requirements apply.
If a threat to public health, welfare, or environment exists, immediate
removal action must be taken to abate, minimize, stabilize, mitigate, or
eliminate the HS release.  If the hazardous contaminants exceed a legally
set "reportable quantity," the Navy must inform EPA and conduct assessments
and needed clean-up.  Coordinate review with the PDE who will contact the
PACNAVFACENGCOM Environmental Division and the Safety/Occupational Health
Manager to obtain the latest guidance/requirements on Government
environmental regulations and design safety requirements. Contact the
Activity safety officer and conduct a visual site investigation for
information regarding hazardous materials within the limits of the project.
Design must safely control all identified hazards.  OSHA and Life Safety
Codes apply and waivers are not available.  Restrictions on Class I Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS):  Under
the Navy's ODS Advisory System, Advisory 96-01A provides additional ODS-
related guidance.  Comply with restrictions on Class I ozone depleting
substances (ODS).  A list of commonly used Class I ODS follows:
