FALLON RANGE TRAINING COMPLEX MODERNIZATION
Expansion of Land Ranges, Airspace Modifications, and Public Land Withdrawal Renewal
Welcome to the United States (U.S.) Department of the Navy's website for the Fallon Range Training Complex Modernization: Expansion of Land Ranges, Airspace Modifications, and Public Land Withdrawal Renewal Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). This online resource provides information about the proposed modernization of the Fallon Range Training Complex, located near Fallon, Nevada.
The U.S. Navy invites you to participate in the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process. The Navy is preparing an EIS to assess the potential environmental impacts of modernizing the Fallon Range Training Complex. Modernization would include: 1) renewal of the Navy's current public land withdrawal, 2) the expansion of land ranges through the additional withdrawal of public lands and the acquisition of non-federal land, and 3) airspace modifications. Ground and aviation training would not increase from the types and tempos currently authorized.
The Bureau of Land Management, the Federal Aviation Administration, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Nevada Department of Minerals, and Churchill County are cooperating agencies for the EIS.
