Welcome to the United States (U.S.) Department of the Navy's EA-18G Growler airfield operations environmental impact statement (EIS) at Naval Air Station (NAS) Whidbey Island complex in Washington state.
The EIS evaluates the potential environmental effects associated with an addition of up to 36 aircraft at NAS Whidbey Island. The purpose of the proposed action is to improve the Navy's electronic attack capability and to provide the most effective force structure and tactical airborne electronic attack capabilities. Once completed, the EIS will meet the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as well as, all applicable state environmental regulations.
The Navy is committed to engaging the community throughout the NEPA process. Through this website, information is provided about the EIS process, including previously completed NEPA studies and efforts for NAS Whidbey Island; project background, EIS project schedule; and opportunities for public involvement. Updates to the information provided will be made through the EIS process to keep you informed about the project.
