NSB Kings Bay in Georgia Receives REPI Challenge Award for 2nd Year in a Row

December 22, 2020 NSB Kings Bay 2020

For the second year in a row, Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay in Georgia was named a recipient of a REPI Challenge award.  The REPI Challenge focused on innovative projects that limit incompatible development, enhance military installation resilience, and/or relieve current or anticipated environmental restrictions on military testing, training, or operations at locations hosting key capabilities outlined in the National Defense Strategy.

Naval Submarine Base (NSB) Kings Bay is located within the Georgia Sentinel Landscape and is essential to the maintenance and operation of the Atlantic fleet of Ohio Class ballistic missile and guided missile submarines.  Located on Georgia’s coastline, NSB Kings Bay is threatened by the potential incompatible development of the surrounding waterfront areas.

This project will allow the Navy to acquire a restrictive use easement on over 16,000 acres of land adjacent to Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay.  By protecting this land and carrying out wildfire management and restoration activities, this project will not only protect the installation from incompatible development and improve its resilience to dangerous wildfires, but also contribute to conserving and restoring habitat for threatened, endangered, and at-risk species such as the gopher tortoise, eastern indigo snake, and woodstork.
