Pursuant to 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), the Department of the Navy (Navy) announces its intent to prepare an EIS to evaluate the potential environmental impacts associated with the proposed extension of Kilo Wharf located in the Apra Harbor Naval Complex, Guam to support the new T-AKE class multi-purpose dry cargo/ ammunition ship. The mission of Commander Navy Region Marianas (COMNAVREGMARIANAS) is to provide operational, fuel re-supply, ordnance, and other logistic support to Fleet units of the Pacific Region and operating forces of the Fifth (5th) and Seventh (7th) Fleets. Guam is the westernmost U.S. military installation on U.S. soil and is located 1,500 miles from the western rim of the Pacific. The location of Guam allows for rapid deployment of ammunition to areas of conflict in the Western Pacific Region. Because ocean transport is the most cost effective means of shipping ammunition, Guam must maintain a wharf that can efficiently accommodate modern ammunition ships. This project is required to improve COMNAVREGMARIANAS' capability to accomplish its mission. The EIS will consider alternatives to expand or replace Kilo Wharf to meet the operational requirements of the T-AKE as well as the No Action alternative.
