Federal Register Highlights – 5/13/16

May 13, 2016

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for May 13, 2016:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Grassy Sound Channel Bridge (West Ocean Drive/CR619) across the Grassy Sound Channel, mile 1.0, at Middle Township, NJ. This deviation is necessary to provide for the safety of runners during “The Wild Half” annual half marathon. This deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position. This deviation is effective from 7:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. on May 15, 2016.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone on the Niagara River, Buffalo, NY. This safety zone is intended to restrict vessels from a portion of the Niagara River during the removal of international power lines spanning the Niagara River. This temporary safety zone is necessary to protect mariners and vessels from the navigational hazards associated with the removal of overhead power lines. This rule is effective from 7:45 a.m. on May 16, 2016, through 6:15 p.m. on May 18, 2016.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for underwater detonation operations in the waters of Apra Outer Harbor and Piti, Guam. The Coast Guard believes this safety zone regulation is necessary to protect all persons and vessels that would otherwise transit or be within the affected areas from possible safety hazards associated with underwater detonation operations. Entry of vessels or persons into these zones is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port Guam. This rule is effective without actual notice from May 13, 2016 until May 16, 2016.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary security zone around the Tall-Ship CUAUHTEMOC during its transit through the Long Island Sound Captain of the Port (COTP) Zone, and for the duration of its mooring on the Thames River in New London Harbor, New London, CT. This temporary final rule creates a 250-yard radius security zone encompassing all navigable waters around the Tall-Ship CUAUHTEMOC while in transit through Sector Long Island Sound’s Captain of the Port (COTP) Zone, and a 100-yard radius temporary security zone while the vessel is anchored or moored in the Thames River in New London Harbor, New London, CT. This zone is needed to protect the Tall-Ship CUAUHTEMOC and its crew from destruction, loss, or injury from sabotage, subversive acts, or other malicious acts of a similar nature. Persons or vessels may not enter the security zone without permission of the COTP or a COTP designated representative. This rule is effective without actual notice from May 13, 2016 until May 14, 2016.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is establishing a special local regulation for certain waters of the Lake of the Ozarks. This action is necessary to provide for the safety of life on these navigable waters near Lakeside, MO, during a powerboat race on June 4, 2016. This regulation designates prohibited areas for the race course and associated safety buffer, spectator areas, and location for vessels to transit during the race at no wake speeds. Deviation from the established special local regulation must be authorized by the Captain of the Port Upper Mississippi River or a designated representative. This rule is effective from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on June 4, 2016.

PROPOSED RULE: This action proposes to amend the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP): Site Remediation (Site Remediation Rule) by removing exemptions from the rule for site remediation activities performed under authority of the Comprehensive Environmental Response and Compensation Liability Act (CERCLA) and for site remediation activities performed under a Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) corrective action or other required RCRA order. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is also proposing to remove the applicability requirement that site remediations be co-located with at least one other stationary source regulated by another NESHAP. The EPA is seeking comment on these issues, but is not requesting comment on any other issues or provisions of the final Site Remediation Rule at this time. Comments must be received on or before June 27, 2016. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference Docket ID No. EPA–HQ–OAR–2002–0021.)
