NOTE ON THE PORT OF LOS ANGELES CHANNEL DEEPENING PROJECT: The proposed Project is to complete the Channel Deepening Project as authorized by Congress in WRDA 2000. WRDA 2000 authorized dredging of the Main Channel of the Port and associated features (berths) to allow the new generation of deeper draft container vessels that require a depth of -53 feet to navigate and access the container terminals along the Main Channel of the Port. Construction of the Channel Deepening Project was initiated in September 2002 (the original Project was analyzed in the September 2000 Channel Deepening Project Draft EIS/EIR). The 2002 Channel Deepening Project has resulted in more dredge material than initially estimated and additional disposal capacity is needed. The SEIS/SEIR analyzes completing the project and adding disposal capacity.

The September 2000 Channel Deepening Project Draft EIS/EIR is available for view at:

Port of Los Angeles Administration Building
425 South Palos Verdes Street
San Pedro, CA 90731
