Document Description
The proposed project is the Right of Entry (ROE) Permit to the City of Imperial Beach (Permittee) for the fireworks show, which will take place at the Imperial Beach Municipal Fishing Pier (Pier) in the City of Imperial Beach on July 4, 2014. The land proposed for use under this ROE Permit will be used by the City of Imperial Beach and the City of Imperial Beach authorized agent(s) and contractor(s) for the purpose of staging and production of the fireworks show, as well as ingress and egress in support of those activities. The fireworks show will last approximately 18 minutes, for a total time not to exceed 20 minutes. The fireworks will be discharged off the Pier starting at 9:00 p.m. The event does not require construction of any temporary or permanent on-land support facilities and no admission fee will be charged; however, the Pier will be closed all day for preparation of the discharge. The even has an expected attendance of approximately 45,000 and 50,000 people. Permittee shall prepare an operations plan that is acceptable and delivered to the Coastal Environmental Rights Foundation (CERF) and the District prior to the event that will include a full, detailed description of efforts to be undertaken to protect water quality, wildlife and habitat. Permittee shall also produce a post-event report, as a supplement to the requirements of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit, addressing the success and failures of the operations plan and proposals for future mitigation to address any plan shortfalls, which will be reviewed for accuracy and agreement by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service and transmitted to CERF and the District. The ROE Permit will commence on July 3, 2014 and will terminate on July 5, 2014, or upon completion of work, whichever occurs earlier. The permit may be terminated by the District or by Permittee as a matter of right and without cause at any time upon providing twenty-four (24) hours' written notice to the other party of such termination.
