Description: Technical Report
Abstract: This study was conducted to determine the impact of a proposed conversion from a motorized to a mechanized force structure by the 9th Infantry Division Motorized (9ID MTZ) I Corps on the Fort Lewis, WA, study area. The study provides (a) an assessment of vehicle off-road mobility and maneuver damage, (b) an assessment of future erosion effects, (c) an assessment of the natural resources impact of maneuver damage addressing four force structures related to the possible I Corps mechanization, and (d) recommendations for management and mitigation. Volume I of this report contains the text analysis of this study, and Volume II contains oversized plates of maps describing vehicle mobility, maneuver damage disturbance levels, soil erosion, and environmental factors.
