The Navy evaluated several alternatives that would fulfill or potentially fulfill the purpose and need:
No Action Alternative
Alternative 1: Ammunition Pier at South Mole with Interior Public Navigation Channel
Alternative 2: Ammunition Pier at South Mole with Exterior Public Navigation Channel
Alternative 3: Ammunition Pier Parallel to South Mole with Exterior Public Navigation Channel
No Action Alternative: Under the No Action Alternative, the Proposed Action would not occur. As required by the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, the No Action Alternative is carried forward for analysis in the Environmental Assessment, and provides a baseline for measuring the environmental impacts of the action alternatives. The No Action Alternative does not meet the Navy’s purpose of and need for the Proposed Action.
Preferred Alternative: Alternative 1 is the Navy’s preferred alternative because it best meets the purpose of and need for the Proposed Action. Implementation of Alternative 1 provides the most cost effective construction alternative without resulting in significant impacts on the environment.
