FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Keith Jenkins, Naval Facilities Engineering Command Atlantic, (Code EV21KJ), 6506 Hampton Boulevard, Norfolk, VA 23508; telephone: 757– 322–4046; Fax: 757–322–4894. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The proposed action is to instrument a 1,713-square-kilometer (500-squarenautical-mile) area of the ocean with undersea cables and sensor nodes, creating an Undersea Warfare Training Range (USWTR), and to use the area for Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) training. Such training would typically involve up to three vessels and two aircraft using the range for any one training event. The instrumented area would be connected to the shore via a single trunk cable. The proposed action would require logistical support for ASW training, including the handling (launch and recovery) of exercise torpedoes (non-explosive) and submarine target simulators. The Navy requires an instrumented undersea warfare training range to VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:15 Oct 27, 2005 Jkt 208001 support worldwide deployment and current and future mission requirements in fulfillment of the U.S. world role and the Global War on Terror, and to counter the threat of modern diesel submarines. The proposed USWTR provides an environment that is consistent with real-world threat situations where training exercises can be conducted under safe and controlled conditions, as well as providing critically important real-time training feedback. The purpose of the proposed action is to enable the Navy to train effectively in an environment encompassing 37 to 274 meters (120 to 900 feet) water depth at a suitable location for Atlantic Fleet units. The Draft OEIS/EIS reviews a thorough site selection process and describes in detail three reasonable siting alternatives located within existing east coast Operating Areas (OPAREAS). The action alternatives considered are Alternative/Site A in the Cherry Point OPAREA, Alternative/Site B in the Virginia Capes OPAREA, and Alternative/Site C in the Jacksonville OPAREA. These three potential sites, along with the No Action Alternative, are evaluated in the Draft OEIS/EIS. Site A in the Cherry Point OPAREA is the Navy’s preferred alternative. The potentially affected areas of the preferred site (in the Cherry Point OPAREA) and the alternate sites (within the Virginia Capes and Jacksonville OPAREAS) have been studied in detail to determine how installation of and operations on the proposed USWTR would potentially affect the marine and landside environments. The Draft OEIS/EIS has been distributed to various Federal, state, and local agencies, as well as other interested individuals and organizations. In addition, copies of the Draft OEIS/EIS have been distributed to the following libraries for public review: 1. Virginia Beach Central Library, 4100 Virginia Beach Boulevard, Virginia Beach, VA 23452. 2. Eastern Shore Public Library, 23610 Front Street, Accomac, VA 23301. 3.
