A meeting on the Port of Long Beach Deep Draft Navigation Feasibility Study and Channel Deepening Project, a joint effort between the Port of Long Beach (POLB) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to evaluate potential improvements to the harbor, will take place this week, on February 13.

The purpose of the meeting is to gather input from the public regarding which environmental issues should be examined as part of the joint document, said the Port in their latest release.

“As part of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) process, an initial Notice of Preparation was released in 2016 for this project. The Amended Notice of Preparation, released on January 29, 2019, reflects a new project title and removes a previous plan to dredge the Port’s Southeast Basin,” according to the official announcement.

The meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m., in the Board Room of the Port of Long Beach Interim Administrative Offices, 4801 Airport Plaza Drive in Long Beach.

The study will evaluate the economic benefits, costs, increased transportation efficiencies and improved navigational safety that would result from the dredging project, which aims to deepen channels, basins and waiting areas for ships calling at the Port of Long Beach.
