A training center in northeastern Ohio is one of four military installations in the country being considered for a potential missile defense site.
The department's Missile Defense Agency has evaluated the four installations. But officials say no decision has been made yet on whether to construct a new missile defense site.
The other installations under consideration are Fort Custer, Mich., Fort Drum, N.Y., and the Portsmouth Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape Training Area near Rangeley, Maine.
The environmental impact studies will take about two years to complete. They will assess potential impacts on land use, water resources and air quality among other areas.
