Abstract : A study of fog oil was initiated at Fort McClellan. Alabama in August, 1995. This study assessed the environmental fate of fog oil in areas where fog oil smoke production had occurred chronically (over 10 years This study was conducted as part of the 'Biological Assessment: Relocation of U.S Army Chemical School and U.S. Army Military Police School to Fort Leonard Wood. The proposed Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) action will involve moving the U.S. Army Chemical and Military Police schools from Fort McClellan, Alabama to Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. A major component of this BRAC action is introduction of fog oil smoke training to Fort Leonard Wood. Because the BRAC action may affect the human environment, an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was prepared. Potential impacts to endangered and threatened species were assessed in a Biological Assessment (BA). Two federally endangered species, Indiana bats (Myotis sodalis) and gray bats (Myotis grisescens), and one threatened species, the bald eagle (Haliaeetus Jeucocephalus) occur on Fort Leonard Wood. These species are protected under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) (Public Law 93-205).
