NORFOLK, Va. –
Due to issues experienced by some commenters with submitting comments to the project website, the Navy will continue to accept comments via e-mail and mail for the Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) for Improving Homeport Facilities for Three NIMITZ-Class Aircraft Carriers at Naval Air Station (NAS) North Island until August 12.
The public may submit written comments by mail (postmarked by August 12) to the following address:
Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command, Atlantic
Attn: EV21, CVN SEIS Project Manager
6506 Hampton Blvd, Building A
Norfolk, VA 23508
The public may also e-mail comments to: NorthIslandCVNSEIS@us.navy.mil
This SEIS will address current mission objectives, routine pier-side maintenance activities and proposed electrical power infrastructure. This may result in three aircraft carriers being in port at the same time at NAS North Island for more days per year than analyzed in previous National Environmental Policy Act documents. The Navy will study how this action may impact traffic, air quality, socioeconomics, environmental justice, and other environmental resource areas.
