MADISON, Wis. – A draft environmental assessment for a proposed modification to the Volk Field Special Activity Airspace (VFSAA) near the Volk Field Combat Readiness Training Center in Camp Douglas, Wisconsin, will be available for public review Jan. 15.

The environmental assessment of the proposed airspace expansion evaluated the potential environmental impacts associated with the proposed action.
