The U.S. Navy has released the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Silver Strand Training Complex (SSTC), a 1,534 acre area between the cities of Coronado and Imperial Beach on the western side of San Diego Bay. The EIS examines the potential environmental effects of the Navy's Proposed Action to increase the amounts and types of training, and to implement range sustainability measures on SSTC and the southern beaches of North Island to enhance training capabilities. The Navy is the lead agency for the EIS. The Proposed Action is necessary for SSTC to support current, emerging, and future training requirements, and to achieve and maintain naval readiness.
All comments must be received by March 30, 2010, to be included in the Final EIS.
