The Department of the Navy (DoN), after carefully weighing the strategic, operational, and environmental consequences of the proposed action, announces its decision to continue and enhance training activities as identified in Alternative 1 in the Northwest Training and Testing Final Environmental Impact Statement/Overseas Environmental Impact Statement.
