Navy comment period extended to April 13th

Due to continued public interest in the Northwest Training Range Complex’s draft environmental impact statement/overseas environmental impact statement (DEIS/OEIS), the U.S. Navy is extending the public comment period to April 13th.

This DEIS/OEIS examines the potential environmental effects of the Navy’s proposal for future range management operations and activities. The Northwest Training Range Complex is actually a series of individual training areas in the Pacific Northwest; extending up to 250 nautical miles off the coast of Washington, Oregon and northern California.

Public comments are a fundamental part of the EIS/OEIS development and key in helping the Navy make informed decisions. For more information on this project, and several ways to provide public comment by the newly extended deadline, visit:
