Notice. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: This notice is to inform the public that the Department of the Navy is expanding the Virginia Capes (VACAPES) Range Complex Environmental Impact Statement/ Overseas Environmental Impact Statement (EIS/OEIS) area of consideration and to invite the public to provide comments for consideration during preparation of the EIS/OEIS. Since the December 2006 EIS/OEIS scoping notice [FR 71143], potential shallow water inert mine warfare training areas have been identified in the southern portion of the Chesapeake Bay, south of latitude 37° 25′N. The proposed training areas would consist of instrumented shapes placed temporarily for training purposes. Each of the two proposed training areas would be approximately one by four square nautical miles in area. Training in these mine warfare areas would not involve use of active sonar. Arrangement could vary periodically and location within the proposed training areas would vary depending on operational requirements; however shipping lanes will be avoided. Divers will be required to perform periodic maintenance and replacement of the instrumented shapes. Scoping comments previously submitted following publication of the December 2006 Notice of Intent to Prepare an EIS/OEIS for the VACAPES Range Complex are still valid and need not be resubmitted. The Navy encourages additional comments or concerns on the expanded area of consideration. VACAPES Range Complex requirements, additional EIS/ OEIS information, proposed action background, alternatives, environmental considerations, and public participation inputs can be found at http:// www.vacapesrangecomplexeis.com.
