Notice of Preparation for Marine Oil Terminal Improvements
An Initial Study/Notice of Preparation — the first step in the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) process — has been released for a Marine Oil Terminal Wharf Improvements Project at the Valero Terminal on Mormon Island in Los Angeles Harbor.
The primary goal of the proposed project is to comply with the Marine Oil Terminal Engineering and Maintenance Standards to protect public health, safety, and the environment, which involves demolition of the existing 19,000-square-foot timber wharf at Berth 164 and construction and operation of a new, Marine Oil Terminal Engineering and Maintenance Standards-compliant wharf, with minor infrastructure improvements to connect the new loading platform to the existing landside pipelines and utilities. The proposed project would also include a new, 30-year lease through 2047.
The Initial Study/Notice of Preparation is available for review at www.portoflosangeles.org. The Initial Study/Notice of Preparation is released for public review to solicit feedback, which helps to identify any potential environmental impacts and suggest possible alternatives for the project that can be incorporated into the EIR.
The Port of Los Angeles will host a public meeting to receive comments on at 6 p.m. Aug. 3, at 6 p.m., at the Port of Los Angeles Administration Building.

Protect your Pets in Extreme Heat
When it is hot for you, it is even hotter for your furry friend. Dogs and cats do not sweat through their skin. They cool themselves by panting or rapid breathing, which means animals must work extra hard to stay cool.
The best plan is to keep your dog and cat protected from the hot weather. Here are some pet safety reminders:
- Give your pet extra water
- Offer your dog a wading pool
- Never leave your pet alone inside a car
- Walk your dog in the morning or evening
- Avoid hot ground surfaces
Don’t leave your pet outdoors for a long time
- Care for your pet’s coat
