Project Description:
In 2002 the U.S. Air Force applied for a right-of-way grant to construct, operate and maintain a communications site on Snowy Peak. In 2005 the BLM issued a renewable 5-year right-of-way grant. In September 2011 the USAF requested another 5-year grant. The communication site consists of a 1,100 square-foot gravel helicopter pad, a sheltered area to house communication equipment, three 60' antenna towers, and a power generation area containing a wind and propane generator and five 200-gallon propane storage tanks. The total area is less than one-half acre. The facility is unmanned, but requires fuel and maintenance personnel to be flown in to the site at least 6 times a year. There are no proposed changes to the plan of operations or the facility.
Project Location:
The proposed action is located on the summit of Snowy Peak within section 25 of Township 9 North, Range 23 East, Fairbanks Meridian. It is located approximately 50 miles east of Circle and approximately 20 miles north of the Yukon River.
