Notice of Availability of a Final General Conformity Determination and Record of Decision for the San Pedro Waterfront Project, Port of Los Angeles, Los Angeles County, CA
Document Number: 2011-14587
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-06-13
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Army, Corps of Engineers, Engineers Corps, Army Department
In September 2009, the Los Angeles District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) and the Los Angeles Harbor Department published a joint final Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR), including the Corps' draft general conformity determination (Section 3.2 and Appendix D.7), for the Federal action associated with the San Pedro Waterfront Project (Project) in the Port of Los Angeles, Los Angeles County, California. Comments were received on the final EIS/EIR and included draft general conformity determination until October 29, 2009. A general conformity determination was necessary because Project construction would require Federal action (i.e., issuance of a Corps permit for work and structures in and over navigable waters, discharges of fill into waters of the U.S., and transport and disposal of dredged material in ocean waters) and not all the Federal action's direct and indirect emissions would be below specified de minimis thresholds (40 CFR 93.153(b)). On May 9, 2011 and May 11, 2011, the Corps made a final general conformity determination and completed its environmental review and executed the Record of Decision (ROD), respectively, for the Federal action associated with the Project. The Corps considered and responded to all comments received in making the final general conformity determination and executing the ROD. The public can request copies of the final general conformity determination document or the ROD from the Corps at the address listed below, or can view or download the final general conformity determination document from the Corps' Web site (http:// www.spl.usace.army.mil/regulatory/POLA.htm, scroll down to the link under San Pedro Waterfront [formerly Bridge to Breakwater]) or the Port of Los Angeles' Web site (http://www.portoflosangeles.org/environment/ public_notices.asp, scroll down to link under San Pedro Waterfront Project).
