800 Seal Beach Blvd, Seal Beach, CA 90740
Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach is one of the military facilities with multiple detachments. It is located in Seal Beach, in the southwestern part of California. All of its three detachments are located in the same state, in San Diego, Concord and Fallbrook. The one in San Diego is the most important one. The base doesn’t have too much more to see, since the latest BRAC – Base Realignment and Closure – commission put it on a closing list. Some parts of it were already closed or transferred to other stations. For instance, the Tidal Area was taken over by the United States Army.
NWS Seal Beach is currently run and maintained by the United States Navy and covers around 21 square kilometers. There are almost 250 buildings in there, not to mention about more than 125 storage sites. The station also owns over 200 trucks and machines for transportation.
The primary mission of NWS Seal Beach is to deal with munitions and weapons. It is used for both storing and transporting the weaponry, depending on the US Navy requirements. Other than that, the installation has the incumbency to support the US Navy in any possible way, regardless of the actions. As long as it can be done, it will be done. Besides, the inhabitants have always been among the officials’ priorities. If people enjoy a happy lifestyle, things always go smoothly, therefore the facilities and services on site are among the most modern ones. The base doesn’t have too much more to “live”, but this doesn’t mean that it will ignore its inhabitants for the rest of its time. It may not be disestablished, but just taken over by other military forces, so the living conditions are maintained at high standards.
The overall population for Seal Beach is 24,168
