Navy Announces Preparation of Environmental Assessment
for Renewed Fueling Operations at
Defense Fuel Support Point San Pedro
SAN PEDRO, Calif. – In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), the U.S. Navy is preparing an Environmental Assessment (EA) to analyze the potential environmental impacts of its proposal to renew fueling operations for commercial and military purposes at Defense Fuel Support Point San Pedro.
The Navy is requesting public input on the scope of analysis and environmental resource areas to be considered in the EA as the Navy initiates the environmental analysis.
The Navy proposes to enter into an outlease, pursuant to 10 U.S.C. § 2667, and assign interests in the Navy-owned fuel pipelines, to allow for renewed fueling operations for commercial purposes at DFSP San Pedro, with provision for fuel servicing of military ships on a periodic basis and via separate fuel purchase agreement. Redevelopment of facilities and infrastructure would likely be required to accommodate continued use of the site.
Public Comment Period
The Navy invites the public to learn about the Proposed Action and provide comments on the scope of analysis and environmental resources to be considered in development of the EA.
