Water Resources Action Plan (WRAP)


         




Final WRAP ReportThe ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach have expanded its water quality programs with the development of a coordinated Water Resources Action Plan (WRAP), a comprehensive effort to target remaining water and sediment pollution sources in the San Pedro Bay.

Water and sediment quality in San Pedro Bay has improved greatly over the last 40 years through increased monitoring, more aggressive regulation by state and federal agencies, better pollution source control and dredging that has removed accumulated contaminants in harbor sediment. However, both ports face ongoing challenges from contaminants that remain in port sediments, flow into the harbor from port land, and flow from upstream sources in the watershed, well beyond the ports’ boundaries.

Both ports are working closely with federal and state officials and other stakeholders to develop measures that will further minimize landside and waterside sources of pollutants in the San Pedro Bay. The WRAP incorporates these new programs while continuing the many water quality initiatives already under way at both ports.

Stakeholder Participation

To kick off the Water Resources Action Plan, a public meeting was held Wednesday, September 17, 2008, at 1 p.m. in the Port of Los Angeles Board of Harbor Commissioners Hearing Room, 425 S. Palos Verdes Street in San Pedro.

The ports strongly encouraged all stakeholders to participate during the development of the WRAP, and solicited comments, input, and ideas during the development stages.  Meetings were held generally the third Wednesday of each month (see schedule below).  

The final plan was adopted at a joint meeting of the Los Angeles and Long Beach Boards of Harbor Commissioners on Wednesday, August 12, 2009, at 1 p.m. at Banning's Landing Community Center, 100 E. Water Street in Wilmington.
