Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Department of the Navy, DoD.

ACTION:

Notice.

SUMMARY:

The Department of the Navy (Navy), after carefully weighing the operational and environmental consequences of the proposed action, announces its decision to construct and operate a Land-Water Interface (LWI) in Hood Canal on the waterfront of Naval Base (NAVBASE) Kitsap Bangor, Washington (WA). The Navy will implement LWI Alternative 3, Port Security Barrier Modifications, which is the Preferred Alternative in the Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) of July 2016 for LWI and Service Pier Extension (SPE), NAVBASE Kitsap Bangor, WA. LWI Alternative 3 is also the environmentally preferred alternative and will fully meet the Navy's purpose and need to comply with Department of Defense directives to protect Navy TRIDENT submarines from increased and evolving threats; prevent the seizure, damage, or destruction of military assets; enhance security within the Waterfront Restricted Area; and comply with security requirements at NAVBASE Kitsap Bangor. Although the proposed SPE project was addressed in the Final EIS, a Navy decision on that project has been deferred and the details of that project are not discussed further in the Record of Decision (ROD).
