SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The EIS analyzes four alternatives to accomplish the proposed training in the State of Hawaii: MMR Alternative 1 (Reduced Capacity Use with Some Weapons Restrictions), MMR Alternative 2 (Full Capacity Use with Some Weapons Restrictions), MMR Alternative 3 (Full Capacity Use with Fewer Weapons Restrictions), and Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA) Alternative 4 (Full Capacity Use with Fewer Weapons Restrictions). Alternative 3 is the Army’s Preferred Alternative. A No Action Alternative, under which nonlive-fire military training would be conducted at MMR, was also evaluated. For all MMR alternatives (with the exception of No Action), MMRs range would be used for 242 training days per year. MMR Alternative 1 (Reduced Capacity Use) involves conducting up to 19 company-level Combined-Arms LiveFire Exercises (CALFEXs) per year and 100 convoy live-fire exercises per year. MMR Alternatives 2 and 3 (Full Capacity Use) involve conducting up to 50 company-level CALFEXs per year and 200 convoy live-fire exercises per year. Weapon systems used for all livefire training alternatives would be similar to those used during past livefire training events at MMR. In addition to the current weapons systems, MMR Alternative 2 incorporates the use of small arms tracer ammunition. MMR Alternative 3 (Preferred Alternative) adds the following items: Tracer ammunition; inert, tube-launched, optically-tracked, wire-guided (TOW) 2 missiles; 2.75-inch rockets; and illumination munitions. Many of these munitions, however, will only be used when consistent with the Endangered Species Act Biological Opinion established for training at MMR. PTA VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:15 Jun 05, 2009 Jkt 217001 Alternative 4 would encompass training similar to that in Alternative 3. Some of the major potential impacts discussed in the Final EIS are associated with soil; surface water and groundwater quality; air quality; cultural sites; natural resources; endangered and threatened species; noise; recreational resources; wildfires; and the safety and transport of munitions through the Waianae community. The Army has recommended several mitigation measures that would reduce the overall impacts associated with the Proposed Action. The final mitigation measures that the Army adopts will be published as part of the Record of Decision. In addition, for alternatives concerning MMR, the Army would phase in certain training activities and ammunition types as steps are taken to recover endangered species.

CFR parts 1500-1508) and Environmental Analysis of Army Actions (32 CFR 
part 651).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The EIS analyzes four alternatives to 
accomplish the proposed training in the State of Hawaii: MMR 
Alternative 1 (Reduced Capacity Use with Some Weapons Restrictions), 
MMR Alternative 2 (Full Capacity Use with Some Weapons Restrictions), 
MMR Alternative 3 (Full Capacity Use with Fewer Weapons Restrictions),

Fewer Weapons Restrictions). Alternative 3 is the Army's Preferred 
Alternative. A No Action Alternative, under which nonlive-fire military 
training would be conducted at MMR, was also evaluated.

range would be used for 242 training days per year. MMR Alternative 1 
(Reduced Capacity Use) involves conducting up to 19 company-level 
Combined-Arms Live-Fire Exercises (CALFEXs) per year and 100 convoy 
live-fire exercises per year. MMR Alternatives 2 and 3 (Full Capacity 
Use) involve conducting up to 50 company-level CALFEXs per year and 200

illumination munitions. Many of these munitions, however, will only be 
used when consistent with the Endangered Species Act Biological Opinion

    Some of the major potential impacts discussed in the Final EIS are 
associated with soil; surface water and groundwater quality; air 
quality; cultural sites; natural resources; endangered and threatened 
species; noise; recreational resources; wildfires; and the safety and 
transport of munitions through the Waianae community.
