This SEIS supplements the Navy's 1999 Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS), ``Developing Home Port Facilities for Three NIMITZ-Class Aircraft Carriers in Support of the U.S. Pacific Fleet,'' as authorized by the Record of Decision (ROD) dated January 28, 2000 and published in the Federal Register on February 8, 2000 (65 FR 6181). The limited purpose of this SEIS is to supplement the traffic analysis contained in the 1999 FEIS, to assess potential new information, validate impacts to traffic and to analyze the effectiveness of existing traffic mitigation measures implemented per the 2000 ROD when three CVNs home ported at Naval Air Station North Island (NASNI), California are simultaneously in port. Completion of the SEIS is necessary under 40 CFR 1502.9 to assess potential new information and to validate impacts to traffic during infrequent periods when three CVNs home ported at NASNI are simultaneously in port. The SEIS will analyze the effectiveness of existing traffic mitigation measures implemented per the 2000 ROD under these conditions. The SEIS will evaluate impacts such as changes in local traffic conditions, changes in personnel loading and potential changes in CVN operational deployment and maintenance schedules that could affect the average number of days three carriers are simultaneously in port. The SEIS will also evaluate the effects of traffic mitigation measures implemented pursuant to the 2000 ROD. Past, present and reasonably foreseeable future regional actions impacting traffic will be examined from a cumulative impacts perspective. In addition, the SEIS will address infrastructure improvements for Berth LIMA, which include utilities upgrades previously analyzed under the 1999 FEIS and newly defined site improvements and other minor alterations to existing infrastructure. Utilities upgrades include: repairs and upgrades to electrical power, communications and information systems, security lighting, fire protection, steam, compressed air, potable water, wastewater and fueling systems. Site improvements and other alterations include: Demolition of existing fenders, moorings, and pier pavement; installation of new fender pile system (with 200-300 fender piles) and mooring fittings; construction of Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection (AT/FP) features (watch tower, guard kiosk, fencing and surveillance equipment); and demolition, repair and paving of the wharf, sidewalks, curbing, storm water drainage features and vehicle parking areas; and landscaping. It is anticipated that the construction of infrastructure improvements to Berth LIMA will take approximately one year to accomplish. Public input is requested to ensure the scope of the SEIS analysis incorporates public concerns and affords the public an input in the decision making process.

Revised Notice of Intent To Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement/Overseas Environmental Impact Statement for the Undersea Warfare Training Range and Notice of Request for Public Scoping Comments
Document Number: E7-18701
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-09-21
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Navy, Navy Department
This notice is issued to advise the public that the Draft Environmental Impact Statement/Overseas Environmental Impact Statement (EIS/OEIS) for the Undersea Warfare Training Range (USWTR) will be revised, and to invite the public to provide comments for consideration during preparation of the revised EIS/OEIS. In compliance with Section (102)(2)(c) of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as implemented by the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations (40 CFR Parts 1500-1508), and Executive Order 12114, the Department of Navy (Navy) announced the preparation of an EIS for the then ``East Coast Shallow Water Training Range EIS/OEIS'' on May 13, 1996 (FR 22028) and invited the public to comment on the scope of the EIS/OEIS. Subsequently, a Draft EIS/OEIS was released on October 28, 2005 (FR 62107) to evaluate the potential environmental consequences associated with constructing and operating an Undersea Warfare Training Range (USWTR). In response to comments received from federal agencies, state agencies, and members of the public, Navy determined that the DEIS should be revised and a new DEIS issued, incorporating suggestions received during the public review and comment period. The changes contemplated involve the addition of an alternative and a modification of the methodology used to analyze impacts on marine mammals. Given the nature of these changes, the Navy has decided to reopen the scoping process and invites the public to submit any comments relevant to the scope of issues to be addressed in the revised EIS/OEIS. Scoping comments previously submitted following publication of the 1996 NOI are still valid and will be considered. All comments received during the Oct 2005 DEIS public review and comment period will be considered during the course of this scoping process and need not be resubmitted. The proposed action is to instrument an approximate 500-square- nautical-mile area of the ocean with undersea cables and sensor nodes, creating a USWTR, and to use the USWTR for anti-submarine warfare (ASW) training. The purpose of the proposed action is to enable the Navy to train effectively in an ocean environment encompassing required water depths (e.g., 120 to 900 feet depth) at a suitable location for Navy Atlantic Fleet units. Training typically would involve an individual unit or up to three vessels and two aircraft using the range at any one time. The Navy anticipates analyzing four alternative sites. The candidate sites are located in the Atlantic Ocean approximately 30 to 50 nautical miles offshore, within existing Navy Operating Areas (OPAREAs). The three candidate sites previously identified as alternatives would continue to be considered: Offshore of northeastern Virginia, offshore of southeastern North Carolina, and offshore of northeastern Florida. A site offshore of central South Carolina will be added as a fourth alternative.
