Hearing on impact of increased military presence held tonight By Kristi Eaton Saipan Tribune (Northern Mariana) February 23, 2009Officials from the U.S. Navy will be holding a public hearing tonight at the Multi-Purpose Center in Susupe to discuss the Mariana Islands Range Complex Environmental Impact Statement.
The 45-day comment period on the statement began on Jan. 30 and ends on March 16, 2009.
The training and testing range complex includes land, air and sea areas on and around Guam, Rota, Tinian, Saipan and Farrallon de Medinilla.
Before any increase in military activity or presence in the Marianas, the military must determine what impact those activities will have on the environment, which comprises not just water resources, air quality, marine mammals, sea turtles, fish and essential fish habitat, seabirds and shorebirds and plants, but also the economic well-being, cultural resources and the health and safety of people living in the CNMI and Guam.
