Abstract : The Department of the Navy has prepared a Final Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) to analyze homeport facilities for a NIMITZ class aircraft carrier at Naval Station (NAVSTA) Mayport. The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1993 requires that Navy prepare a plan for developing NAVSTA Mayport as a NIMITZ class carrier homeport. Under existing carrier force structure plans, conventional aircraft carriers will be replaced by nuclear-powered carriers (CVNs). This document evaluates the environmental impacts of CVN homeporting at NAVSTA Mayport in the year 2010.
