Download as PDF jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 150 / Thursday, August 6, 2009 / Notices to allow for compliance with the special area discharge standards in the Annex, the IMO has not yet established a date for the WCR special area to come into effect. When the WCR special area enters into effect, the more restrictive discharge standards in 33 CFR 151.71 and Regulation 5 of MARPOL Annex V will also enter into effect. In general, these regulations prohibit the discharge of all garbage from a ship in special areas except food wastes. The discharge of food wastes must be made as far as practicable from land, but in any case not less than 12 nautical miles from the nearest land. However, in the WCR special area food wastes comminuted or ground and capable of passing through a screen with openings no greater than 25 millimeters may be discharged not less than 3 nautical miles from the nearest land. The Coast Guard will not speculate as to a time line, and there currently is no time line, for the WCR special area coming into effect. In anticipation of the WCR special area entering into effect at some point in the future, the Coast Guard invites the public, commercial interests, local, State, Federal agencies, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), public interest groups, trade organizations, and all other interested parties to comment on the WCR special area entering into effect. The Coast Guard is specifically interested in identifying all issues that impact port reception facilities, commercial shipping vessels, and recreational vessels operating in the WCR special area and in obtaining recommendations to address those issues. The Coast Guard seeks input on the following general issues: • Additional MARPOL Annex V port reception facility capacity needed when the WCR special area goes in to effect; • The impact on MARPOL Annex V cargo residues within the WCR special area; • Impacts of MARPOL Annex V waste collection requirements on local/ regional waste disposal capacity and infrastructure located within ports in the WCR special area; • Time needed to ensure compliance with WCR special area discharge standards. The Coast Guard would also like to receive public input concerning the following questions: • How many vessels operating in the WCR currently treat it as a special area and adhere to the special area discharge standards? • What would be the operational impact to vessels discharging MARPOL Annex V garbage, including cargo VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:04 Aug 05, 2009 Jkt 217001 residues and cargo hold wash-water containing cargo residue at a port reception facility? • Is there current capability to accept MARPOL Annex V cargo residues and cargo residue wash-water from vessels, and do cargo vessels currently use this type of reception facility? • How much additional MARPOL Annex V garbage would need to be offloaded at port reception facilities, and will currently adequate port reception facilities still be adequate when the WCR special area goes into effect? • What effect, if any, will the discharge restrictions in the WCR special area have on U.S. port and terminal operators holding a Certificate of Adequacy (COA)? • Will U.S. port and facility operators be able to meet increased quantity and capacity requirements and ensure that port reception facilities can meet the needs of all vessels calling at their ports? • How many vessels operate solely within the WCR special area? Written comments and responses to the above questions will be added to the docket number for this notice (USCG– 2009–0365). The Coast Guard intends to review and analyze all comments received in order to develop a way forward for the implementation of the discharge standards when the WCR special area comes into effect. This notice is issued under authority of 33 CFR 151.53(b) and 5 U.S.C. 552. Dated: July 30, 2009. J.G. Lantz, Director of Commercial Regulations and Standards. [FR Doc.
