Navy base plans testing tomorrow, next week

Get ready for the booms tomorrow. The Navy base says testing will be conducted on the Potomac River Test Range from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. all of next week.

The testing has the potential to produce the loudest noise during normal business hours, then moderate noise from 5 to 8 p.m., according to a press release.

Access to the Potomac River will be restricted down range to the J buoy on the Virginia side and the K buoy on the Maryland side. More information and the range schedule are available on the test range website or by calling its hotline at 877/845-5656.
