KETCHIKAN- There are no significant changes planned to the Navy's only West Coast facility that measures underwater sounds made by submarines.

But the U.S. Navy still must file a draft Environmental Impact Statement for the Southeast Alaska Acoustic Measurement Facility, which is located in Behm Canal near Ketchikan.
Public comments on the draft are being accepted through March 25, and the Navy will conduct a public hearing on March 11 in Ketchikan.
Public comments also can be submitted on this website:http://nwtteis.com/default.aspx .
