The Port of San Diego was recently honored with three prestigious environmental awards from the Association of Environmental Professionals San Diego Chapter. The awards were presented at the Chapter’s annual award night event, held October 5, 2017.
In the category of Outstanding Environmental Analysis Document, the Port brought home the top award for the San Diego Bay and Imperial Beach Oceanfront Fireworks Display Events Project Environmental Impact Report (EIR). The EIR summarizes the project, identifies each significant effect, with proposed mitigation measures and alternatives that would reduce or avoid that effect. It also identifies the areas of controversy, including issues raised by the public and summarizes the issues to be resolved, including the choice alternatives and how to mitigate the significant effects. This project will allow for the continuation of fireworks display shows in and around San Diego Bay and Imperial Beach, thereby activating District tidelands.
