The DEIS addresses the need, alternatives, and environmental consequences of homeporting three SEAWOLF Class submarines at three submarine facilities including the Naval Submarine Base New London, Groton CT; the Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay GA, and the Naval Station Norfolk VA. The Naval Submarine Base New London has been identified as the preferred alternative.

The DEIS quantifies and characterizes the dredge material and disposal options at each homeport alternative. The DEIS has been distributed to various federal, state and local agencies, elected officials, special interest groups, the media, and concerned citizens. Copies of the DEIS have also been [[Page 12749]] placed in local libraries in Connecticut, Virginia, and Georgia.
