SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Background and Purpose ORPC’s tidal energy project involves installation of five underwater turbines on the seabed in the navigable waters of Cobscook Bay. The nature and operation of the structure is hazardous and poses risks to the mariner. In order to mitigate the inherent risks involved with these tidal generators, it may be necessary to control or limit vessel movement and activity through the area. Several maritime practices that involve physical contact with the seabed (e.g., anchoring, dragging, trawling, etc.) pose a specific risk to the mariner as inadvertent entanglement with an underwater turbine could pose the risk of a marine casualty. It is also VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:27 Feb 03, 2012 Jkt 226001 conceivable that mariners who become entangled in the underwater turbine and auxiliary power cables could be electrocuted. In order to minimize the risk of a marine casualty, entanglement, or electrocution, the Coast Guard may propose regulatory action or, in the alternative, it may decide to take other actions outside of a regulatory act. The proposed regulatory action might consist of a regulated navigation area or safety zone. This option may look to prohibit anchoring, fishing, dredging, diving, surface or submarine scientific equipment, dragging, trawling, or any other activities that could pose the risk of a marine casualty or impact the underwater turbines. It is important to note that violations of these regulations may result in law enforcement action and liable a civil or criminal penalty. Potential non-regulatory actions that could be taken by the Coast Guard are routing measures that would amount to recommendations to the mariner of an area to be avoided or a precautionary area in which the mariner would have notice that they should avoid the area in order to reduce the risk of a marine casualty. This request invites public comment on the merits, advantages, and disadvantages of taking action to prohibit certain activities in the vicinity of the proposed tidal energy project. We are attempting to determine the scope of any safety concerns associated with vessel navigation in the area. We expect that information gathered during the comment period and public meetings will identify any problems and appropriate solutions. We will use your comments to evaluate if the Coast Guard will pursue action within a designated area of Cobscook Bay, ME and what activities should be excluded once these underwater turbines are installed. The Coast Guard is also interested in receiving comments and information about the current aids to navigation (ATON) configuration, proposed private aids to navigation (PATON) to mark the turbine generator units, and potential impacts associated with installation of an underwater cable assembly to transfer electricity to a power control and grid interface facility in Lubec, Maine.
