NRDC Comment Letter to the Navy on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement/ Overseas Environmental Impact Statement for the Northwest Training Range Complex

Letter
March 10, 2009

This is a comment letter to the Navy regarding its Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the Northwest Training Range Complex, which encompasses waters off Washington, Oregon and northern California. In sum, the Navy's environmental analysis falls far short of what federal law requires: the Navy fails to explain potential environmental and cumulative impacts, to analyze all reasonable alternatives, and to delineate measures that may actually mitigate harm.
