Navy to conduct testing on Hood Canal mid-Nov. through mid- Dec.

Naval Base Kitsap announced in a press release Friday, Nov. 15 that a division from the Naval Surface Water Center will be conducting testing on the Hood Canal from Nov. 17 through Dec. 11.

The testing will be performed from a self-contained Navy barge southeast of the Dabob Bay entrance during this period, increasing Naval supported activity in the area.

The barge has operated in Hood Canal previously and will be present from dawn until dusk on most weekdays unless they are under maintenance in the port. The Navy has plans in place should foul weather or other emergencies arise.

An environmental site review of the area was conducted and determined that the testing will not threaten marine life or habitat, nor infringe on crab pot use and other fishing and harvesting activities. Also, no wastewater or other fluids will be discharged during testing.
