NORFOLK, Va. –
The Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the addition of Growler aircraft to NAS Whidbey Island, originally scheduled to be released to the public this summer, will now be released in the fall. The Draft EIS will address the environmental impacts associated with the potential addition of up to 36 EA-18G Growler aircraft at NAS Whidbey Island.
The public will be notified when the draft document is available for review. A press release will be distributed to interested media, advertisements will be placed in local newspapers, and copies of the draft document will be provided to area libraries. The document will also be available for public review on the project web site. The release of the document will begin a public comment period, during which interested members of the public are encouraged to comment on the document. Public meetings will be scheduled and announced at that time as well.
Additional information about the Draft EIS can be found on the project website at: http://www.whidbeyeis.com. The public website includes up-to-date information on the project and schedule, as well as related documents associated with the Draft EIS.
