SILVERDALE, Wash - The Department of the Navy announced today its decision
to implement its Preferred Alternative, Alternative 1, to continue training

Area as described in the Northwest Training and Testing (NWTT) Final

comments received following the publication of the Final Supplemental

The Navy is committed to being a good steward of the environment and will
continue to implement mitigation measures to avoid or reduce potential
environmental impacts from training and testing.
