Question

How does the Department of the Navy (DON) comply with environmental planning requirements?

Answer

DON, like all federal agencies, conducts an environmental impact study prior to starting any/all major actions on our Navy and Marine Corps bases and installations. Major actions can include anything from building a new road, structure, or parking lot to stationing a new aircraft at a particular base. Environmental impact of the action is evaluated, minimized where we can, and mitigation measures implemented to compensate for the remaining impact.
