ACTION:

Notice of availability.

SUMMARY:

In November 2008, the Los Angeles Harbor Department (LAHD) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Los Angeles District, Regulatory Division (Corps) published a joint Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement and Subsequent Environmental Impact Report (SEIS/SEIR) for the development of a marine oil terminal at Berth 408 on Pier 400 in the Port of Los Angeles, Los Angeles County, California (Project). On February 19, 2010, the Corps published a draft general conformity determination for the Federal action associated with the Project. Comments were received on the draft general conformity determination until March 22, 2010. A general conformity determination was required because Project construction would require Federal action (i.e., issuance of a Corps permit for work and structures in and over navigable waters of the U.S. pursuant to Section 10 of the River and Harbor Act) and not all the Federal action's direct and indirect air emissions would be below specified de minimis thresholds (40 CFR 51.853(b)). On June 1, 2010 and June 3, 2010, 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.
