Department of the Navy, DoD.
The Department of the Navy (DoN), after carefully weighing the strategic, operational, and environmental consequences of the proposed action, announces its decision to continue and enhance training activities as identified in Alternative 1 in the Northwest Training and Testing Final Environmental Impact Statement/Overseas Environmental Impact Statement. This alternative includes adjustments to existing training and testing activities, new training and testing activities to support future requirements, and activities not previously analyzed, such as pierside sonar maintenance and testing. Implementation of Alternative 1 will enable the DoN to achieve the levels of operational readiness required under Section 5062 Title 10 U.S.C. without resulting in significant environmental impacts.
