Fender System Replacement by NASSCO at Berth II
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The proposed project would involve replacement of the fender systems by General Dynamics-NASSCO (Tenant) at Berth II in the city of San Diego, California. The steel and concrete piers are Inspected regularly, and presently the fender systems at Berths V and VI are aged and at the end of their serviceable life expectancy. Without properly functioning fender systems, berthed vessels could exert sufficient stress onto the pier and/or support pilings, creating damage and safety issues for the pier structure itself as well as the surrounding environment. The base of the pier is approximately 40 feet above the bay floor. Depths at Berth II range from approximately -26 feet to -34 feet MLLW.
