ABOUT THIS SITE
The Department of the Navy (Navy) is preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for EA-18G Growler Airfield Operations at Naval Air Station (NAS) Whidbey Island, Washington. The EIS will evaluate the potential environmental effects associated with an addition of up to 36 aircraft to NAS Whidbey Island. The purpose of the proposed action is to improve the Navy’s electronic attack capability and to provide the most effective force structure and tactical airborne electronic attack capabilities. Once completed, the EIS will meet the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) as well as all applicable state environmental regulations.
The Navy is committed to engaging the community throughout the EIS process. This website provides information about the EIS process, including previously completed NEPA studies and efforts for NAS Whidbey Island; project background; EIS project schedule; and opportunities for public involvement. Updates to this website will be made throughout the EIS process to keep you informed about the project.
