The United States (U.S.) Department of the Navy (Navy), after carefully weighing the environmental consequences of the installation and operation of the proposed action, announces its decision to develop an undersea warfare training range (USWTR) within the Preferred Alternative Site, the Jacksonville Operating Area (JAX OPAREA). At this time the Navy is implementing only a portion of the proposed action, a decision to move forward with installation of the USWTR, which consists of installing undersea cables and up to 300 nodes over a 500 square- nautical-mile area of the ocean. This location is approximately 50 nm from the northeast coast of Florida. The underwater nodes will be linked by underwater cable to a cable termination facility located ashore on Naval Station Mayport, Florida.
