The United States (U.S.) Department of the Navy’s website for the Fallon Range Training Complex Modernization Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) provides information about the proposed modernization of the Fallon Range Training Complex, located near Fallon, Nevada.
The U.S. Navy invites you to participate in the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process. The Navy is preparing an EIS to assess the potential environmental impacts of modernizing the Fallon Range Training Complex. Modernization would include: 1) renewal of the Navy’s current public land withdrawal, 2) land range expansion through the additional withdrawal of public lands and the acquisition of non-federal land, 3) airspace expansion and modifications, and 4) upgrades to range infrastructure. Ground and aviation training would not increase from the types and tempos currently conducted.
The Draft EIS is now available for public review and comment. The comment period is open from Nov. 16, 2018, to Jan. 15, 2019. The public is encouraged to submit comments on the Draft EIS during this period.
The Navy is holding seven public meetings from Dec. 10-13, 2018, to inform the public about the proposed modernization and the results of the environmental impact analysis.
