The DoN prepared this analysis to update the Gulf of Alaska Navy Training Activities Final EIS/OEIS, which was completed with community input in May 2011 (hereafter referred to as the 2011 GOA Final EIS/OEIS), and to renew federal regulatory permits and authorizations. In the Draft Supplemental EIS/OEIS, the DoN uses a new acoustic modeling method and evaluates new, relevant information, such as new marine mammal density data and new scientific information, and updates environmental analyses, as appropriate. The DoN analyzes data using the Navy Acoustic Effects Model, not previously available for the 2011 GOA Final EIS/OEIS, to evaluate potential effects on marine species from training activities. The National Marine Fisheries Service is a cooperating agency for this Supplemental EIS/OEIS. With the filing of the Draft Supplemental EIS/OEIS, the DoN is initiating a 60-day public comment tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:23 Aug 21, 2014 Jkt 232001 period and has scheduled five public meetings to inform the public and receive comments on the Draft Supplemental EIS/OEIS.

Dates And Addresses: The 60-day Draft Supplemental EIS/OEIS public review period will begin August 22, 2014, and end October 20, 2014. The DoN will hold five public meetings to inform the public about the Proposed Action and to provide an opportunity to comment on the adequacy and accuracy of the supplemental environmental analysis. Each of the public meetings will include an open house information session, followed by a short presentation by the DoN. DoN representatives will be available during the open house information sessions to provide information related to the Draft Supplemental EIS/OEIS. Federal, state, and local agencies and officials, as well as interested organizations and individuals are encouraged to provide comments in writing during the public review period or in person at one of the scheduled public meetings. The public meetings will be held from 5:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m., with a DoN presentation at 6:30 p.m., on the following dates and at the following locations: 1. Monday, September 8, 2014, at the Elks Lodge, 102 W. Marine Way, Kodiak, AK 99615 2. Tuesday, September 9, 2014, at the Z.J.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Naval Facilities Engineering Command Northwest, Attention: Ms. Amy Burt— GOA Supplemental EIS/OEIS Project Manager, 1101 Tautog Circle, Suite 203, Silverdale, WA 98315–1101. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A Notice of Intent to prepare this Supplemental EIS/OEIS was published in the Federal Register on January 16, 2013 (78 FR 3408). This Supplemental EIS/OEIS is an update to the 2011 GOA Final EIS/OEIS and Record of Decision (ROD). It will support U.S. Pacific Command, Northern Command, and Joint Task Force Commander training requirements to achieve and maintain Fleet readiness as required by Title 10 of the U.S. Code. The DoN’s Proposed Action is the same as the Proposed Action presented in the 2011 GOA Final EIS/OEIS and ROD, which is to continue conducting periodic military training activities in a specific area of the Gulf of Alaska called the Temporary Maritime Activities Area. The Temporary Maritime Activities Area and Proposed Action, including the location, number, and frequency of major training exercises, remain unchanged from the 2011 analysis. The DoN evaluated each resource area discussed in the 2011 GOA Final EIS/OEIS to determine if additional analysis is necessary in the Draft Supplemental EIS/OEIS due to new information or new analysis methods. In this Draft Supplemental EIS/OEIS, the DoN re-evaluates potential impacts from ongoing military training activities conducted in the Temporary Maritime Activities Area. All resource areas were examined to determine the need for reanalysis in this Draft Supplemental EIS/ OEIS. The marine mammal resource analysis for each alternative in the 2011 GOA Final EIS/OEIS was updated. For other resource areas, the 2011 analysis remains valid. The Supplemental EIS/OEIS supports authorization of incidental takes of E:\FR\FM\22AUN1.SGM 22AUN1
