The Department of the Navy (DoN), after carefully weighing the strategic, operational, and environmental consequences of the proposed action, announces its decision to both accommodate future military operational increases and implement and complete a revised Comprehensive Land Use Management Plan (CLUMP) at Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake (NAWSCL), California as set out in Alternative 1 of the Final Environmental Impact Statement/ Legislative Environmental Impact Statement (Final EIS/LEIS) for Renewal of Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake Public Land Withdrawal. Implementation of this alternative includes Congressional renewal of the public land withdrawal (25-year renewal), accommodation of an increase in Research, Development, Acquisition, Test, and Evaluation and training tempo (up to 25 percent) within current land use areas approved for designated uses, expansion of unmanned aerial and surface systems, and expansion of existing and introduction of evolving directed energy weapons development. Nonmilitary activities would continue according to current patterns of use. Proposed land use changes would be accommodated in accordance with the CLUMP and applicable NAWSCL approval processes. Natural and cultural resources would continue to be conserved with implementation of the CLUMP management process.
