Commander Navy Region Northwest understands that, "Sustaining our mission, including executing today's operations and developing the capabilities and capacity for tomorrow's force depends on our responsible stewardship of the land, waterways and resources with which we are entrusted."
Helping to enusure our forces continue to be good stewarts of the environment, the Navy closely follows policies of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). For more information about NEPA and current Environmental Impact Statements & Environmental Assessments visit NAVFAC Northwest.
Evaluating the potential environmental effects from military readiness training and testing activities conducted primarily within existing range complexes and testing ranges in the NWTT Study Area, the U.S. Navy completed the Northwest Training and Testing (NWTT) Final Environmental Impact Statement/Overseas Environmental Impact Statement (EIS/OEIS). The report was completed and released in the fall of 2016.
Ensuring quality of life and safety on our installations is a top priority. Each installation continually reviews environmental policies and compliance.
