The proposed project is for the completion of shore power improvements in order to support existing ship building and repair operations by General Dynamic's NASSCO in the City of San Diego. The proposed project includes the upgrade and installation of two dedicated shore power circuits at Berth 2 and Berths 5/6. NASSCO proposes to perform maintenance on the current electrical system and replace existing cables in order to consistently meet power demands. Additionally, NASSCO would install approximately 1,300 feet of new conduit and bale via trenching at a depth of approximately 1.5 feet.
The project is determined to be Categorically Exempt pursuant to CEQA guidelines Section 15301 and/or 15303 and Sections 3.a (7) and/or 3.c (3) of the district's guidelines for compliance with CEQA because the project is for the completion of shore power improvements that would involve a negligible expansion of use beyond that previously existing and would have no permanent effects on the environment.
