The general conformity regulations (40 CFR Part 93 Subpart B) allow general conformity determinations to be included in an EIS, but inclusion of these determinations is not required and can be separately noticed. The Addendum and General Conformity Determination are 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 TraPac Project).
