Abstract : This statement assesses the environmental impacts expected to result from construction and operation of the proposed Winnersville Range. The no- action alternative of not proceeding with establishment of the range is also considered. Salient impacts of range development would result from clearing vegetation on the 450-acre target area near the center of the Grand Bay/Banks Lake wetlands complex. The principal impacts of operation would result from increased noise levels in the vicinity of the 5900-acre range. It is concluded that no overriding environmental factors are evident that would render establishment of the proposed range unacceptable.
