Navy Guam Construction Starts With Release of Final Review

Text size: A A

The U.S. Navy released on Sept. 21 its final environmental report on impacts and mitigation measures of a planned buildup of facilities and infrastructure on the Pacific island of Guam that could cost more than $15 billion. The work will enable the transfer of thousands of U.S. Marines and dependents to the island by 2016. Release of the “record of decision” allows construction and personnel relocation to begin now, says the Navy. It follows a mammoth environmental review, one of the largest ever undertaken for a federal project, say Navy officials. However, the Navy will defer its decision to build planned training ranges and facilities for nuclear aircraft carriers because of local concerns. A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency spokesman says the agency, which had cited significant environmental concerns, has not yet reviewed the document.
