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 is preparing an EIS to evaluate the potential environmental impacts from the Navy’s proposed construction and operation of new security structures, relocation of submarines and extension of an existing pier on the Naval Base Kitsap Bangor waterfront.

The Navy proposes 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 efficiencies of the SEAWOLF Class submarines.

The proposed actions include:
  • Land-Water Interface
    • Construct two pile-supported piers or modify/lengthen the existing Port Security Barriers across the intertidal zone to enclose the Waterfront Restricted Area on Naval Base Kitsap Bangor
  • Service Pier Extension
    • Relocate two SEAWOLF Class submarines from Naval Base Kitsap Bremerton to Naval Base Kitsap Bangor
    • Extend the existing Bangor waterfront Service Pier
    • Construct associated facilities and a parking lot
