Draft SEIS/SEIR - Pacific L.A. Marine

The Environmental Management Division of the Los Angeles Harbor Department and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have prepared a joint Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement/Subsequent Environmental Impact Report (SEIS/SEIR) for the following project:

Pacific L.A. Marine Terminal LLC Crude Oil Terminal

SUBSEQUENT/SUPPLEMENTAL DOCUMENT: The development of a deep-draft marine oil terminal on Pier 400 is consistent with the project that was originally envisioned and analyzed in the Deep Draft EIS/EIR and therefore is not a major revision to the original project.  The proposed project is on land that was created as a result of the environmental review and approvals that occurred during the original Deep Draft EIS/EIR process.  However, the LAHD is designating this document as a Subsequent EIR (and the USACE is considering it a Supplemental EIS) because it represents not simply an updating of the Deep Draft EIS/EIR, but a full, project-specific EIR that tiers from the Deep Draft EIS/EIR.

AVAILABILITY: The Draft SEIS/SEIR is available for review at the following locations:

Los Angeles Public Library, Central Branch
630 West 5th Street
Los Angeles CA 90071
