SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ESG COMPTUEX (May-June 2007) is a major Navy Atlantic Fleet training exercise proposed to occur in May and June 2007 in the offshore Virginia Capes, Cherry Point, and Charleston Operating Areas (OPAREAs) and adjacent military installations. The purpose of this exercise is to certify naval forces as combat-ready. Activities conducted during the exercise include air-toground bombing at land ranges, amphibious landings, mine warfare VerDate Nov<24>2008 14:51 Apr 20, 2010 Jkt 220001 exercises, gunnery exercises, small craft interdiction operations, maritime interdiction operations, and antisubmarine warfare, including use of mid-frequency active (MFA) sonar. The FONSI is based on analysis contained in a Comprehensive Environmental Assessment (EA) addressing environmental impacts associated with land-based training for Major Atlantic Fleet Training Exercises on the East and Gulf Coasts of the U.S. The FONSH is based on analysis contained in a Comprehensive Overseas Environmental Assessment (OEA) and Supplement to the Comprehensive OEA (SOEA) for environmental impacts associated with Navy’s conduct of major exercise training in offshore operating areas along the East and Gulf Coasts of the U.S. Environmental concerns addressed in the EA included land use, community facilities, coastal zone management, socioeconomics, cultural resources, airspace, air quality, noise, geology, soils, water resources, biological resources, munitions and hazardous materials management, and safety. The OEAs addressed potential impacts to the ocean physical environment, fish and Essential Fish Habitat; sea turtles and marine mammals; seabirds and migratory birds; endangered and threatened species; socioeconomics; and cultural resources. The SOEA included an updated analysis of MFA sonar use and gunnery use associated with ESG COMPTUEX (May– June 2007). This action includes mitigation measures to reduce impacts to a level that is less than significant. Based on information gathered during preparation of the Major Atlantic Fleet Training Exercise EA and OEA and the SOEA and the evaluation of the nature, scope and intensity of the proposed action, the Navy finds that the conduct of the ESG COMPUTEX (May–June 2007) will not significantly impact or harm the environment and, therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement or Overseas Environmental Impact Statement is not required.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ESG COMPTUEX (May-June 2007) is a major Navy 
Atlantic Fleet training exercise proposed to occur in May and June 2007 
in the offshore Virginia Capes, Cherry Point, and Charleston Operating 
Areas (OPAREAs) and adjacent military installations. The purpose of 
this exercise is to certify naval forces as combat-ready. Activities 
conducted during the exercise include air-to-ground bombing at land 
ranges, amphibious landings, mine warfare exercises, gunnery exercises, 
small craft interdiction operations, maritime interdiction operations, 
and anti-submarine warfare, including use of mid-frequency active (MFA) 
sonar.
    The FONSI is based on analysis contained in a Comprehensive 
Environmental Assessment (EA) addressing environmental impacts 
associated with land-based training for Major Atlantic Fleet Training 
Exercises on the East and Gulf Coasts of the U.S. The FONSH is based on 
analysis contained in a Comprehensive Overseas Environmental Assessment 
(OEA) and Supplement to the Comprehensive OEA (SOEA) for environmental 
impacts associated with Navy's conduct of major exercise training in 
offshore operating areas along the East and Gulf Coasts of the U.S. 
Environmental concerns addressed in the EA included land use, community 
facilities, coastal zone management, socioeconomics, cultural 
resources, airspace, air quality, noise, geology, soils, water 
resources, biological resources, munitions and hazardous materials 
management, and safety. The OEAs addressed potential impacts to the 
ocean physical environment, fish and Essential Fish Habitat; sea 
turtles and marine mammals; seabirds and migratory birds; endangered 
and threatened species; socioeconomics; and cultural resources. The 
SOEA included an updated analysis of MFA sonar use and gunnery use 
associated with ESG COMPTUEX (May-June 2007).
    This action includes mitigation measures to reduce impacts to a 
level that is less than significant. Based on information gathered 
during preparation of the Major Atlantic Fleet Training Exercise EA and 
OEA and the SOEA and the evaluation of the nature, scope and intensity 
of the proposed action, the Navy finds that the conduct of the ESG 
COMPUTEX (May-June 2007) will not significantly impact or harm the 
environment and, therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement or 
Overseas Environmental Impact Statement is not required.
