Document Description
The University of California (UC) Santa Barbara has prepared an Initial Study/ Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) for the proposed Ellwood Marine Terminal Demolition and Restoration Project. The Project proposes to demolish and remove existing oil storage tanks and other onshore structures associated with the former operation of the Ellwood Marine Terminal (EMT) oil and gas facilities located on the UC Santa Barbara’s North Campus. The Project also proposes to remediate on-site soil contamination and restore the site to establish new wetlands and other native habitats. The 2,665-foot on- and offshore loading line would be removed and ultimately abandoned. The offshore portion of the loading line is within California State Lands Commission jurisdiction.
