Manchester Fuel Depot’s EAP open for review

NAVAL BASE KITSAP-MANCHESTER — The U.S. Navy released its Draft Environmental Assessment report and opened a 30-day public comment period on the proposed fuel tank improvement project at its Manchester Fuel Department.

Members of the community are invited to attend an informational open house from 5-8 p.m. on Wednesday, June 27 at Sedgwick Middle School, 8995 SE Sedgwick Road, Port Orchard, to discuss the plans with project experts.
