Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 164 / Friday, August 22, 2008 / Notices Background and Purpose The Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) provides an assessment of the potential environmental impacts associated with the proposed regulation of residue resulting from the shipping of dry cargo on the Great Lakes. The preferred alternative would amend Coast Guard regulations in accordance with an existing policy that allows the discharge of nontoxic and nonhazardous bulk dry cargo residues in limited areas in the Great Lakes, with new requirements for recordkeeping and new designated special areas where discharges would be prohibited. The USCG has the authority to regulate such discharges on the Great Lakes under Section 623 of Public Law 108–293. Dated: August 15, 2008. Howard L. Hime, Acting Director of Commercial Regulations and Standards, United States Coast Guard. [FR Doc.
