Navy to conduct testing on Hood Canal through June

Navy environmental site review concluded that testing will not threaten marine life or habitat

Naval Surface Warfare Center Carderock, Detachment Puget Sound, will conduct testing operations on Hood Canal April 29 through June 28.

Testing will be performed from a self-contained U.S. Navy barge near Big Beef Creek (southeast of the Dabob Bay entrance). During this period, Navy-supported watercraft activity will increase in the area, including a tugboat.

The barge, which has operated in Hood Canal previously, will be present from dawn until dusk on weekdays, with the exception of days in port for maintenance. All appropriate agencies, including the U.S. Coast Guard, were notified of its scheduled activities, according to a Naval Base Kitsap press release.

The Navy’s environmental site review concluded that testing will not threaten marine life or habitat. No wastewater or other fluids will be discharged, and operations will not inhibit crab pot usage or other fishing and harvesting.
