The findings are: • A network of ports and harbors is essential to the United States’ economy, affecting its competitiveness in world trade and national security. Port facilities serve as a key link in the intermodal transportation chain and can realize their full potential as magnets for shipping and commerce only if dredging occurs in a timely and cost-effective manner. • The nation’s coastal, ocean, and freshwater resources are critical assets which must be protected, conserved, and restored. These resources are equally important to the United States by providing numerous economic and environmental benefits. • Consistent and integrated application of existing environmental statutes can protect the environment and can allow for sustainable economic growth. • Close coordination and planning at all governmental levels, and with all aspects of the private sector, are essential to developing and maintaining the nation’s ports and harbors in a manner that will increase economic growth and protect, conserve, and restore coastal resources. • Planning for the development and maintenance of the nation’s ports and harbors should occur in the context of broad transportation and environmental planning efforts such as the National Transportation System and the ecosystem/watershed management approach. The principles are: • The regulatory process must be timely, efficient, and predictable, to the maximum extent practicable. • Advanced dredged material management planning must be conducted on a port or regional scale by a partnership that includes the Federal government, the port authorities, state and local governments, natural resource agencies, public interest groups, the maritime industry, and private citizens. To be effective, this planning must be done prior to individual Federal or nonFederal dredging project proponents seeking individual project approval. • Dredged material managers must become more involved in watershed planning to emphasize the importance of point and non-point source pollution controls to reduce harbor sediment contamination. • Dredged material is a resource, and environmentally-sound beneficial use of dredged material for such projects as wetland creation, beach nourishment, and development projects must be encouraged. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:51 Jun 21, 2007 Jkt 211001 The findings and principles were embraced by all of the Group’s participating agencies. The Federal agencies committed themselves to the fulfillment of these principles. In 2001, the National Dredging Team convened a stakeholder workshop to assess progress on the 1994 report’s 18 recommendations and identify actions that could address issues impacting dredging and dredged material management for the foreseeable future. The result is the National Dredging Team’s 2003 Dredged Material Management: Action Agenda for the Next Decade (2003 Action Agenda), which supersedes the 1994 report. The 2003 Action Agenda contains the National Dredging Policy and 22 recommendations to assist the National Dredging Team in implementing the National Dredging Policy. The National Dredging Team continues to be guided by the 2003 Action Agenda and is actively addressing these recommendations, many of which require ongoing activity. The recommendations in the 2003 Action Agenda fall into four themes: beneficial use of dredged material, sediment management, strengthening Regional Dredging Teams, and emerging issues. The National Dredging Team recognizes that additional issues may have emerged since publication of the 2003 Action Agenda. The goals of the National Dredging Team, which is a Federal interagency group co-chaired by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, are to facilitate communication, coordination, and resolution of dredging issues among the participating Federal agencies and to serve as a forum for promoting the implementation of the National Dredging Policy and the recommendations in the National Dredging Team’s Action Agenda. The National Dredging Policy and the 2003 Action Agenda can be found at http:// www.epa.gov/owow/oceans/ndt/. III. Today’s Action Today’s notice announces the review of the National Dredging Policy and the National Dredging Team’s 2003 Action Agenda. The interagency, Cabinet-level Committee on the Marine Transportation System requested that the National Dredging Team review the National Dredging Policy (and the National Dredging Team’s 2003 Action Agenda) to reaffirm their adequacy in support of the U.S. Marine Transportation System. As a key element in the U.S. Ocean Action Plan, the Committee on the Marine Transportation System has been PO 00000 Frm 00041 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 directed by the President to improve federal Marine Transportation System coordination and policies, and recommend strategies and plans for improvement. Dredging is an important issue in the Marine Transportation System. The Committee on the Marine Transportation System looks upon dredging as supporting the Marine Transportation System’s effectiveness and reliability regarding the movement of people and commerce. Therefore, the Committee on the Marine Transportation System requested the National Dredging Team take this action on its behalf. Implementation of the National Dredging Policy is promoted by the National Dredging Team, which is leading this review through its cochairs, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The National Dredging Policy provides a national, unified policy for navigational dredging and focuses Federal agency commitments. Reviewing this Policy and the National Dredging Team’s 2003 Action Agenda provides an opportunity to assess our progress in addressing the issues impacting dredging and dredged material management. As part of its review, the National Dredging Team will consider the public comments submitted in response to this notice. As part of the National Dredging Team’s review to reaffirm the adequacy of the Policy and 2003 Action Agenda, the National Dredging Team will consider whether it should revise the Policy or publish an Addendum to the 2003 Action Agenda, updating the Action Agenda as appropriate. If the National Dredging Team develops any revisions to the National Dredging Policy or any Addendum to the 2003 Action Agenda, EPA would intend to publish a Federal Register notice requesting comment on such revisions or addenda.
