All comments provided during the formal public review and comment periods were also considered, as well as national security and mission requirements. The consideration of future programs ensures that the general type and intensity of most of DPG’s future activities were addressed. A range of factors such as future technology developments, available budgets, and changing defense threats often alter test plans. The Proposed Action within the Future Programs EIS includes only those activities that are reasonably foreseeable and for which DPG is the proponent or can make a decision about the activity. Specific program designations and equipment/materials to be tested may change between the time that the EIS was prepared and the actual test date. Accordingly, the EIS identifies the general characteristics of reasonably foreseeable test programs, rather than providing definitive and specific test information. DPG will continue to implement its existing mitigation measures, as well as measures described in the ROD, to mitigate potential environmental and socioeconomic impacts caused by the Proposed Action. DPG and the Army are committed to protecting human health, sustaining their environments, and maintaining regulatory compliance.
