U.S. Navy to Prepare Supplement to the Gulf of Alaska Draft Supplemental EIS/OEIS
The Navy is preparing a Supplement to the December 2020 Gulf of Alaska Navy Training Activities Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement/Overseas Environmental Impact Statement (EIS/OEIS). This Supplement will address a change in the Study Area and the addition of a new Continental Shelf and Slope Mitigation Area. The Navy recognized that the current training area no longer provides sufficient space for realistic maneuvering of vessels and aircraft during training exercises. The proposed Western Maneuver Area would include additional airspace and sea space for vessel and aircraft maneuvering. No new or increased number of training activities are proposed. The proposed mitigation area would minimize impacts on marine mammals, fish, and marine birds. The Supplement is expected to be available in March 2022 for public review and comment.
