Port of Los Angeles, USACE Invite Input on Everport Plans
The Port of Los Angeles and USACE have prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Statement/Report (EIS/EIR) for the container terminal located at Berths 226-236 on Terminal Island at the Port of Los Angeles, operated by Everport Terminal Services, Inc.
The proposed project would improve the container-handling efficiency and capacity of the existing terminal to accommodate the projected fleet mix of larger container vessels that are anticipated to call at the Everport Container Terminal through 2038.
The Draft EIS/EIR includes a discussion of the proposed project’s environmental impacts and identifies mitigation measures to reduce these impacts as required under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
The 45-day public comment and review period for the Draft EIS/EIR is from April 20 to June 5, 2017, the Port of Los Angeles said.
