The proposed rule was published in the October 24, 2005, issue of the Federal Register (70 FR 61402), and no comments were received in response to that notice. The Corps amends the regulations at 33 CFR 207.718 (b), (d)(3), (e), (f)(1), (j) and (w)(7). Paragraph (b) changes the description of the limits of the approach channels at Bonneville Lock and Dam. Paragraph (d)(3) deletes the Bonneville Lock and Dam specific exception referring to vessels entering under an amber light. This provides consistent entering and exiting signals for the entire Columbia/Snake lock and dam system. Paragraph (e) had several changes. The amended paragraph deletes the Bonneville specific exception on useable chamber size. The modified paragraph adds text detailing the Bonneville Lock and Dam staff gauges, sill elevations, and how to compute depth over the sill, since Bonneville’s staff gauges are different from all other Columbia/Snake lock and dams that directly read depth over the sill. The amended paragraph replaces a sentence referring to vessel draft so it refers to depth over the sill and not staff gauge readings. This change makes the sentence correct for all Columbia/Snake locks including Bonneville. The revised paragraph corrects the minimum depth over the sill at Bonneville Lock and Dam at 19 feet. The amended paragraph deletes three sentences concerning rearrangement of tows specifically at Bonneville Lock and Dam, and it deletes one sentence concerning inundation of the downstream guide wall at Bonneville Lock and Dam. Paragraph (f)(1) corrects grammar by changing the last word from ‘‘sections’’ to ‘‘section.’’ Paragraph (j) includes grammatical changes and corrects and details the location of the downstream mooring facility at Bonneville Lock and Dam. This new paragraph also deletes reference to vessels being allowed to lay-to against the upstream guide wall at Bonneville Lock and Dam.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. General Information Affected Entities: Federal agencies and public and private non-Federal sponsors eligible to have cost-shared projects approved under the Great Lakes Legacy Act of 2002. II. Background Contaminated sediments have been a problem in the Great Lakes for several decades. It has been reported that polluted sediment is the largest major source of contaminants entering the food chain from Great Lakes Rivers and harbors. This includes most of the current 41 Areas of Concern (AOCs) designated by the United States and Canada, the Parties to the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement. Over the past several years, Great Lakes stakeholders have moved forward in the pursuit of sediment remediation through a variety of mechanisms (enforcement, voluntary partnerships, etc.). From 1997–2004, approximately 3.7 million cubic yards of contaminated sediment were remediated from the U.S. Great Lakes Basin. Roughly 76 million cubic yards of contaminated sediment remain. Congress passed the Great Lakes Legacy Act of 2002 on November 12, 2002 and President George W. Bush signed the Legacy Act into law on November 27, 2002 (Pub. L. 107–303). The Legacy Act authorizes the appropriation of $50 million annually for fiscal years 2004–2008 for contaminated sediment remediation projects and provides EPA with a unique approach for addressing contaminated sediment problems in Great Lakes AOCs. The Act also authorizes smaller amounts of funding for other activities; this action pertains only to sediment remediation project selection and implementation. In order to be an eligible project under the Legacy Act, a project must be carried out in an AOC located wholly or partially in the United States and the project must: 1. Monitor or evaluate contaminated sediment; PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 2. Implement a plan to remediate contaminated sediment; or 3. Prevent further or renewed contamination of sediment. The Legacy Act program is implemented through Project Agreements, which are binding costsharing agreements between the Great Lakes National Program Office (GLNPO) and a cooperating agency or entity. Project selection decisions will be made in consultation with the USEPA Office of Water. Legacy Act authorizing language places only limited restrictions on the types of entities (non-Federal sponsors) that may potentially enter into a Project Agreement with GLNPO. This provides the potential for entering into agreements with public and private entities, including not-for-profit organizations. It is the ultimate goal of GLNPO to work cooperatively with all qualifying potential non-Federal sponsors that have submitted project proposals under the Legacy Act in order to develop projects that are technically sound, beneficial to the environment, supported by the local community, and able to be completed in an expeditious manner. It is important to maintain the necessary flexibility in evaluating project proposals to achieve this goal. In situations where other sources of funding are available (e.g., Water Resources Development Act—WRDA) or other mechanisms to complete the project are available (e.g., Superfund or other enforcement or regulatory programs), GLNPO will work with these existing programs, where appropriate, to add value in a way that maximizes the overall benefit to the environment. In cases where enforcement or regulatory actions are pending, or underway, GLNPO will work and coordinate with the applicable enforcement or regulatory program on a case-by-case basis to determine the proper role, if any, for the Legacy Act to provide a value-added component to the project. In some cases, identifying a role for the Legacy Act may not be possible, if a proposed action is more appropriately accomplished by another program or agency. III. Project Selection The Legacy Act specifically directs the Administrator to give priority to projects that: 1. Constitute remedial action for contaminated sediment; 2. Have been identified in a Remedial Action Plan (RAP) and are ready to be implemented; 3. Use an innovative approach, technology, or technique that may provide greater environmental benefits, E:\FR\FM\01MYR1.SGM 01MYR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to its authorities in Section 4, 7, 
and 28 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1917 (40 Stat. 266; 33 U.S.C. 
1) and Chapter XIX of the Army Appropriations Act of 1919 (40 Stat. 
892; 33 U.S.C. 3), the Corps amends the regulations in 33 CFR Part 
207.718. The proposed rule was published in the October 24, 2005, issue 
of the Federal Register (70 FR 61402), and no comments were received in 
response to that notice.
    The Corps amends the regulations at 33 CFR 207.718 (b), (d)(3), 
(e), (f)(1), (j) and (w)(7). Paragraph (b) changes the description of 
the limits of the approach channels at Bonneville Lock and Dam. 
Paragraph (d)(3) deletes the Bonneville Lock and Dam specific exception 
referring to vessels entering under an amber light. This provides 
consistent entering and exiting signals for the entire Columbia/Snake 
lock and dam system.
    Paragraph (e) had several changes. The amended paragraph deletes 
the Bonneville specific exception on useable chamber size. The modified 
paragraph adds text detailing the Bonneville Lock and Dam staff gauges, 
sill elevations, and how to compute depth over the sill, since 
Bonneville's staff gauges are different from all other Columbia/Snake 
lock and dams that directly read depth over the sill. The amended 
paragraph replaces a sentence referring to vessel draft so it refers to 
depth over the sill and not staff gauge readings. This change makes the 
sentence correct for all Columbia/Snake locks including Bonneville. The 
revised paragraph corrects the minimum depth over the sill at 
Bonneville Lock and Dam at 19 feet. The amended paragraph deletes three 
sentences concerning rearrangement of tows specifically at Bonneville 
Lock and Dam, and it deletes one sentence concerning inundation of the 
downstream guide wall at Bonneville Lock and Dam.
    Paragraph (f)(1) corrects grammar by changing the last word from 
``sections'' to ``section.'' Paragraph (j) includes grammatical changes 
and corrects and details the location of the downstream mooring 
facility at Bonneville Lock and Dam. This new paragraph also deletes 
reference to vessels being allowed to lay-to against the upstream guide 
wall at Bonneville Lock and Dam. Paragraph (w)(7) revises the upstream 
restricted area of Little Goose Lock and Dam to allow less interference 
between fisherman and the boat ramp on the north river bank as more 
small craft portaging is expected coinciding with the Lewis and Clark 
bicentennial.
    The regulation governing the navigation locks and approach 
channels, Columbia and Snake Rivers, Washington and Oregon, 33 CFR 
207.718 was adopted on January 23, 1978 (43 FR 3115). The last 
amendment to 33 CFR 207.718 January 26, 2000 (65 FR 4125).
    This rule is not a major rule for the purposes of Executive Order 
12866. As required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act, the Corps of 
Engineers certifies that this rule would not have a significant impact 
on small business entities.

show water levels in feet above MSL and are located on the southern 
guide walls at the upstream and downstream miter gates. Bonneville's 
upstream sill elevation is 51 feet MSL and the downstream sill 
elevation is -12 feet MSL. Depth over sill at Bonneville is determined 
by subtracting the sill elevation from the gauge reading. Vessels shall 
not enter the navigation lock unless the vessel draft is at least one 
foot less than the water depth over the sill. Information concerning 
allowable draft for vessel passage through the locks may be obtained 
from the Lock Master. Minimum lock chamber water level depth is 15 feet 
except at Ice Harbor where it is 14 feet and at Bonneville where it is
