SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: CSG COMPTUEX (April-May 2008) is a major 
Navy Atlantic Fleet training exercise proposed to occur in April and 
May 2008 in the offshore Jacksonville Operating Area (OPAREA) 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 (ATG) bombing at land ranges, Combat 
Search and Rescue (CSAR), Maritime Interdiction Operations (MIO), Naval 
Gunfire, Fast Attack Craft/Fast Inshore Attack Craft (FAC/FIAC), and 
Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW), 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

[[Page 21123]]

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 EA and OEA 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 associated with the 
CSG COMPTUEX.
    This action includes mitigation measures to reduce impacts to a 
level that is less than significant. In accordance with 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 CSG COMPTUEX in April and May 
2008 will not significantly impact or harm the environment and, 
therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement or Overseas Environmental 
Impact Statement is not required.
