Department of the Navy, DOD.
The United States Department of the Navy (DoN), after carefully weighing the strategic, operational, and environmental consequences of the proposed action, announces its decision to conduct training and testing activities in the Hawaii-Southern California study area as described in Alternative 2 of the Final Environmental Impact Statement/Overseas Environmental Impact Statement for Hawaii-Southern California Training and Testing, dated August 2013. Under Alternative 2, the DoN will be able to meet current and future DoN and Department of Defense training and testing requirements. In addition to analyzing baseline testing and training in Alternative 2, the DoN analyzed areas where training and testing will continue as in the past, but were not considered in previous environmental analyses. Alternative 2 also includes the establishment of new range capabilities, as well as modifications of existing abilities; adjustments to the type and tempo of training and testing; and the establishment of additional locations to conduct activities between range complexes.
