Navy announces preparation of Environmental Assessment for pier, turning basin project

SEAL BEACH — The U.S. Navy is preparing an Environmental Assessment (EA) to analyze the potential impacts of constructing a replacement ammunition pier and waterfront facilities at Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach.

The new pier would be built to current earthquake standards, able to support future fleet requirements and provide greater separation between Navy operations and civilian boat traffic.

A thorough environmental review will be done to determine whether the proposed project would have potentially significant impacts. The Navy is requesting public input on the scope of issues and environmental resources to be analyzed in the EA.

The Navy proposes to construct an approximately 1,100-foot-by-125-foot replacement ammunition pier and associated waterfront facilities inside Anaheim Bay. The project would include dredging for the pier, turning basin and new small boat access channel. The small boat access channel would be for civilian boat traffic to and from Huntington Harbour.

The Navy invites the public to learn about the project and provide comments.

Comments may be submitted online at or mailed to: Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southwest, Attn: Code JE20.TB, 1220 Pacific Highway, Building 131 San Diego, CA 92132. 

Comments must be postmarked by April 18, 2016.
