  • Description:
    This Environmental Assessment (EA) evaluates potential environmental effects of constructing a mooring location for a new research barge at the Service Pier along the waterfront at Naval Base Kitsap Bangor located in Silverdale, WA. The Proposed Action consists of the following three components: moving and reconfiguring sections of an existing Port Operations floating pier from the north side of the Service Pier to the south side, and installing new float sections; removing an existing mooring dolphin and concrete pile cap in order to accommodate the new barge; and installing pier moorings within the southeast corner of the Service Pier complex for the new research barge. 16 steel piles would be installed primarily using a vibratory pile driver, and installation may need to be completed using an impact hammer. Construction is planned to begin on approximately July 16, 2013 and is planned to be completed by approximately September 30, 2013. This EA analyzes two action alternatives and a no-action alternative. The purpose of the Proposed Action is to provide a safe, secure mooring location for a new research barge in order to accommodate research equipment upgrades. The Proposed Action is needed to support water-dependent research, development, testing, and evaluation activities. This EA analyzes the potential effects on the environment of the Preferred Alternative, Alternative 2, and the no-action alternative. The following resource areas have been addressed in the EA: air quality, noise, water quality and marine sediment, biological resources, marine traffic and transportation, socioeconomics and environmental justice, cultural and historical resources, and American Indian traditional resources.
