2009 Joint Final Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (FEIS/FEIR)

This project-specific assessment is carried out in accordance with CEQA to address the environmental impacts of the San Pedro Waterfront Project. It may not address mitigation of all existing/pre-project effects below the CEQA baseline that might occur on or off of Port property. These effects are outside of CEQA and being addressed through broad Port programs such as the San Pedro Bay Clean Air Action Plan, Water Resources Action Plan, and a community mitigation agreement. However, this EIR does identify cumulative impacts in a number of areas that occur adjacent to or off of Port land.

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.

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

Los Angeles Public Library, San Pedro Branch
921 South Gaffey Street
San Pedro, CA 90731

Los Angeles Public Library, Wilmington Branch
1300 North Avalon Blvd.
Wilmington, CA 90744

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

The public notice is available on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers website at www.spl.usace.army.mil/regulatory/POLA.htm. A limited number of printed copies of the Draft SEIS/SEIR are also available at the Port's Environmental Management Division offices to purchase. The Draft SEIS/SEIR is also available on CD for no charge.

PUBLIC MEETING: The Corps and the Port held a public meeting to receive public comment on the Draft SEIS/SEIR for this project on June 26, 2008. See meeting transcript and presentation links below.

COMMENTS: Written comments on the Draft SEIS/SEIR were sent to both of the contacts listed below. The public review period for this project closed on August 13, 2008.

About CEQA/NEPA

The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), requires state and local agencies to identify significant environmental impacts of their actions and to avoid or mitigate those impacts, if feasible. The City of Los Angeles Harbor Department analyzes potential environmental impacts of Port of Los Angeles development projects. If significant impacts are identified, strategies for reducing such impacts are examined. An Environmental Impact Report (EIR), which is a report of this analysis, is presented to the Board of Harbor Commissioners before any decision is made on the project. The EIR allows the Board to make an informed choice, while balancing the impact of Port development on the environment and the financial benefits of the project to the City of Los Angeles.

Whenever there is major federal involvement in Port development projects in the form of federal funding or permits, the Port must also comply with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). NEPA is similar to CEQA, as it requires analysis of the environmental impacts of a project prior to federal action on the project. The preparation of such an analysis is called an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). Sometimes, CEQA and NEPA documents are combined into a joint EIR/EIS, and are co-produced with a federal agency, such as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Click here for a flowchart showing the general approach and steps in the CEQA process at the Port of Los Angeles. The flowchart follows a proposed project's environmental review process from the time the Port receives the project application to when the project's EIR is presented to the Board of Harbor Commissioners for consideration and certification. The flowchart also highlights public participation opportunities.
