The Final EIS/EIR includes a draft general conformity determination (see Section 3.2 and Appendix P), pursuant to Section 176(c) of the Clean Air Act. A general conformity determination is necessary because Project construction would require Federal action (i.e., issuance of a Corps permit for activities proposed in and over navigable waters and waters of the U.S.) and not all the Federal action’s direct and indirect emissions would be below specified de minimis thresholds (40 CFR 93.153(b)). Pursuant to the general conformity regulations (40 CFR Part 93 Subpart B), general conformity determinations do not have to be included in the EIS and can be separately noticed, but the draft general conformity determination for the Federal action associated with the Project is being included in the Final EIS/EIR in this case. The Final EIS/EIR, including the draft general conformity determination, is available for public review during the next 30 days at the Los Angeles Harbor Department, 425 South Palos Verdes Street, San Pedro, California, on the Port’s Web site: http:// www.portoflosangeles.org, and on the Corps’ Web site: http:// www.spl.usace.army.mil/regulatory/ POLA.htm (scroll down to the links under China Shipping Project).

Any comments received by the Corps and LAHD on the Final EIS/EIR or the included draft general conformity determination during the next 30 days will be considered fully before the Corps makes a final general conformity determination and finalizes the Record of Decision (ROD) for the Federal action associated with the Project.

The public can request from the Corps copies of the ROD, which includes responses to comments on the Final EIS/EIR, including any on the draft general conformity determination, following publication of a final general conformity determination and upon execution of the ROD.

Statement/Environmental Impact Report and a Draft General Conformity 
Determination for the Berths 97-109 [China Shipping] Container Terminal 
Project, Port of Los Angeles, Los Angeles County, CA

SUMMARY: On April 30, 2008, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Los 
Angeles District, Regulatory Division (Corps) in coordination with the 
Los Angeles Harbor Department (LAHD) completed and published the 
Recirculated Draft Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact

Terminal Project (Project) in the Port of Los Angeles. The Corps and

which is available for a 30-day review. The Final EIS/EIR includes a 
draft general conformity determination (see Section 3.2 and Appendix 
P), pursuant to Section 176(c) of the Clean Air Act. A general 
conformity determination is necessary because Project construction 
would require Federal action (i.e., issuance of a Corps permit for 
activities proposed in and over navigable waters and waters of the 
U.S.) and not all the Federal action's direct and indirect emissions 
would be below specified de minimis thresholds (40 CFR 93.153(b)). 
Pursuant to the general conformity regulations (40 CFR Part 93 Subpart 
B), general conformity determinations do not have to be included in the 
EIS and can be separately noticed, but the draft general conformity 
determination for the Federal action associated with the Project is 
being included in the Final EIS/EIR in this case.
    The Final EIS/EIR, including the draft general conformity 
determination, is available for public review during the next 30 days 
at the Los Angeles Harbor Department, 425 South Palos Verdes Street, 
San Pedro, California, on the Port's Web site: http://
www.portoflosangeles.org, and on the Corps' Web site: http://

Library, Wilmington Branch, 1300 North Avalon, Wilmington, California.
    Any comments received by the Corps and LAHD on the Final EIS/EIR or 
the included draft general conformity determination during the next 30 
days will be considered fully before the Corps makes a final general 
conformity determination and finalizes the Record of Decision (ROD) for 
the Federal action associated with the Project. The Corps will publish 
a notice of a final general conformity determination in the Federal 
Register within 30 days of rendering a final decision. The public can 
request from the Corps copies of the ROD, which includes responses to 
comments on the Final EIS/EIR, including any on the draft general 
conformity determination, following publication of a final general 
conformity determination and upon execution of the ROD.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Questions or comments concerning the 
Final EIS/EIR or the included draft general conformity determination 
should be directed within the next 30 days to Dr. Spencer D. MacNeil,
