Abstract : The Los Angeles and Long Beach Harbors constitute a single geographic entity, politically divided into jurisdictions governed by the Cities of Los Angeles and Long Beach, California. The two harbors occupy a part of San Pedro Bay and adjacent land areas that form the western margin of the City of Long Beach and the southern margin of the City of Los Angeles. This report presents (a) an environmental inventory of the harbor area, and (b) a prediction of the impacts of the environment that will result from dredging several ship channels and turning basins within Los Angeles Harbor and deposition of the dredged sediments in designated areas to create new waterfront lands.
