Port of LA, USACE Address Container Terminal Expansion

(Press Release)
Monday, December 19, 2011

The Port of Los Angeles and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Statement/Report (EIS/EIR) for the Berths 302-306 APL Container Terminal Project that involves the improvement and expansion of the existing 291-acre terminal by 56 acres. APL operates the second largest container terminal at the Port of Los Angeles. The proposed project calls for the development of 1250 feet of new wharf and 41 acres of backland with planned state-of-the-art infrastructure, including 12 new cranes and Alternative Maritime Power™ (AMP™) facilities. The existing  41-acre adjacent fill was constructed from dredged harbor materials as part of the Main Channel Deepening project.

The Draft EIS/EIR assesses the proposed improvements to the terminal and projected container throughput under the current lease term with APL that expires in 2027. The environmental document includes a discussion of the proposed project’s environmental impacts and identifies mitigation measures to reduce these impacts as required under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Six project alternatives are also presented as part of the study. 
The public comment and review period is from December 16, 2011 to February 17, 2012. During this time, the Port will accept written comments and will host a public meeting on January 19, 6 p.m., at the Port of Los Angeles Administration Building to present its findings and provide opportunity for public comment. A copy of the document is available for public review at the following locations:
Comments on the Draft EIS/EIR should be submitted in writing prior to the end of the 60-day public review period and must be postmarked by February 17, 2012. Please submit written comments to:  
Christopher Cannon, Director of Environmental Management, Port of Los Angeles, 425 S. Palos Verdes Street, San Pedro, CA 90731.
Written comments may also be sent via email to ceqacomments@portla.org.  Comments sent via email should include the project title in the subject line, attached to the email in letter format, and include a valid mailing address in the email.  Questions regarding this notice or the project should be directed to the Port of Los Angeles Environmental Management Division at (310) 732-3675. For more information, visit www.portoflosangeles.org. The Port of Los Angeles is America’s premier port and has a strong commitment to developing innovative strategic and sustainable operations that benefit the economy as well as the quality of life for the region and the nation it serves.
