Navy report details maps for firing range

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The U.S. Navy released a technical report and maps for the proposed live-fire training range complex this weekend. The technical report details the analysis that was conducted by the Navy after it committed to ensuring 24/7 access to Pagat Village, cave and trail.  The Navy also released notational maps of the five current reasonable alternatives that are located in the Route 15 area and adjacent to Naval Magazine. 

Noteworthy is that the maps show privately owned land that are within the notional training range complex alternatives and the Navy is seeking the public's help in identifying landowners whose property is shown on the proposal.  The military must obtain permission from these landowners to conduct environmental studies on their property. 

The scoping period is currently open and will close on April 6.  The community is encouraged to review the documents.
