Navy wants your input on underseas training

Posted: Updated:

The US Navy is seeking public comments on its plans to expand undersea training in the Western Pacific and bombing of Farallon de Medinilla - an uninhabited island north of Guam. The proposed undersea training activities include testing of sonar and active explosives in the waters surrounding Guam and the Mariana Islands.

The activities are to support military readiness requirements beyond 2020. The military is requesting comments to include potential environmental issues and viable alternatives to be considered during the drafting of the Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement.

The Navy previously completed an EIS in 2015 for at sea training and testing activities within the Mariana Islands Training and Testing Area. The deadline to submit comments is September 15.
