In 2008, the Port of Los Angeles and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers jointly released an EIS/EIR that evaluated the construction and operation of the China Shipping Container Terminal at Berths 97-109. The 2017 Draft SEIR evaluates the continued operation of the terminal under new and/or modified mitigation measures, along with an incrementally higher cargo throughput level compared to that assumed in the 2008 EIS/EIR. The analysis examines whether potentially new significant environmental impacts or substantially more severe impacts would occur in the areas of air quality, greenhouse gases, and ground transportation.
