"This final environmental impact statement (FEIS) evaluates the environmental effects of constructing and operating a second Explosives Handling Wharf (EHW-2) on Naval Base Kitsap at Bangor. It has been prepared by the United States Department of the Navy (Navy) in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969. The proposed action is needed because the existing EHW alone will not be able to support TRIDENT program requirements. Five action alternatives and the No-Action Alternative are evaluated. The action alternatives consist of combinations of two access trestle layouts (separate and combined) and three wharf configurations (conventional pile-supported, large pile, and floating). The project would also include construction of an upland road, an abutment where the trestles connect to the shore, and an upland construction staging area. Approximately 20 existing facilities and/or structures in proximity to the proposed structure would be modified or demolished to comply with Department of Defense Explosives Safety Board and Naval Ordnance Safety and Security Activity requirements. Four new buildings would be constructed to house the functions of some of the buildings to be demolished or vacated. One new building would be located approximately 1 mile south of the EHW-2 site; three new buildings would be located inland approximately 2.2 miles south of the EHW-2 site. The marine and terrestrial construction would occur over approximately 4 years. In-water work would be subject to timing and seasonal restrictions to avoid and minimize impacts. The preferred alternative is the Combined Trestle, Large Pile Wharf Alternative"--Abstract.
