Location of Naval Base Kitsap Bangor

Naval Base Kitsap Bangor, located on Hood Canal approximately
20 miles (30 kilometers) west of Seattle, Washington (see adjacent map), provides berthing and support services to United States (U.S.) Department of the Navy (Navy) OHIO Class ballistic missile submarines, hereafter referred to as TRIDENT submarines, as well as a SEAWOLF Class submarine.

The Navy has prepared a Draft EIS to evaluate the potential environmental impacts from the Navy’s proposed construction and operation of new security structures and for the extension of the existing Service Pier on Naval Base Kitsap Bangor.

The Navy is proposing and analyzing two projects on the Naval Base Kitsap Bangor waterfront to: (1) comply with Department of Defense directives to protect TRIDENT submarines from increased and evolving threats and to prevent the seizure, damage or destruction of military assets and (2) eliminate deployment constraints and improve maintenance of SEAWOLF Class submarines.

The Proposed Actions include:
  • Land-Water Interface
    • Complete the perimeter of the Waterfront Restricted Area by constructing and operating barrier structures at its northern and southern ends using either pile-supported piers or Port Security Barriers to connect the existing on-water Port Security Barrier system and the on-land Waterfront Security Enclave.
  • Service Pier Extension
    • Extend and operate the existing Service Pier and construct and operate support facilities to accommodate the transfer of two SEAWOLF Class submarines from Naval Base Kitsap Bremerton to Naval Base Kitsap Bangor.


The Notice of Availability (NOA) and Notice of Public Meeting (NOPM) for the Draft EIS for the Land-Water Interface (LWI) and Service Pier Extension (SPE) were published in the Federal Register on February 13, 2015.
