Navy Facing Billion-Dollar Tab, Years to Get China Lake Fully Operational After Quake

A pair of strong earthquakes that struck the Navy’s key hub for air warfare research, development and testing six weeks ago handed the service a huge bill to replace, rebuild or repair damaged facilities.

The Navy estimates more than $2 billion in repairs are needed to repair facilities damaged by a pair of earthquakes six weeks ago at its vital hub for air warfare research, development and testing.

China Lake Naval Weapons Station encompasses 1.1 million acres north and southeast of the desert town of Ridgecrest. The facility, roughly the size of Rhode Island, remains partially mission capable after an earthquake measuring magnitude-7.1 occurred one day after the magnitude- 6.4 temblor rocked Southern California on July 4th. The broader, long-term impact of the damage to the Navy’s research, development and testing missions the weapons station typically supports remains unclear. https://news.usni.org/2019/08/21/navy-facing-billion-dollar-tab-years-to-get-china-lake-fully-operational-after-quake
