This website has been designed to facilitate public participation in the review
of the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the proposed U.S. Navy Land-Water Interface
and Service Pier Extension at Naval Base Kitsap Bangor, located in Silverdale, Kitsap County, Washington.
Location of Naval Base Kitsap Bangor
Naval Base Kitsap Bangor, located on Hood Canal approximately20 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:
Draft EIS Review
- 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 Navy invites you to participate in the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process
for the Land-Water Interface and Service Pier Extension EIS by providing comments
on the Draft EIS.
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.
